Surname Dictionary

Ó Ruadhraic Rourke: sean-leagan d'Ó Ruairc, q.v. Deir de Bhulbh go raibh an chlann i dTír Fhiachrach, Sligeach agus go raibh an t-ainm Lochlannach, Hrothrekr, mar phréamh ach déarfainn nach raibh an ceart aige annsan - bhí ainm Gaelach Ruarc i bhfeidhm roimh theacht na Lochlannach. B'fhéidir gur rua + arg (laoch) a bhí ann.
Ó Ruairc rare: Dublin etc. Ir.Lang. See O'Rourke.
Ó Ruairc (O)'Rourke: an-líonmhar: gach aird - Lár na Tíre go sonrach. Tiarnaí ar Bhreifne sa luath-aois ach d'imigh cúngú orthu sa 12 céad nuair a bhí siad teoranta i Liatroim .i. Breifne Uí Ruairc agus bhí Ó Raghallaigh i gcumhacht sa Chabhán. Tar éis oll-scriosta an 17 céad, d'imigh mórán díobh go dtí an Mhór-Roinn agus bhain clú amach sa Rúis, sa Phólainn, san Ostair is sa bhFrainc. Ach sa deireadh thiar, b'e Tiarnán Ó Ruairc, an fear gur "fuadaíodh" a bhean, Derbhforgaill, ag Diarmaid Mac Murchadha, an duine ba chinniúnaí díobh go léir, mar, b'as an eachtra san a tugadh na Gaill go h-Éirinn.
O'Rorke Quite numerous: scattered. Ir. Ó Ruairc. See O'Rourke.
O'Rourke Very numerous: all areas, least in Cork. Ir. Ó Ruairc (perhaps "red hero"). With O'Reilly, the other leading sept of Breifne (Cavan-Leitrim). After the destruction of the Gaelic polity in 17 cent, they achieved distinction in Europe, particularly in Austria and Russia. IF.
Rorke rare: Dublin, Cavan etc. Ir. Ó Ruairc. See Rourke.
