ClaremapWelcome to the ÓLochlainn clan web-pages. Here you will find information on the clan, which originated centuries ago in and around what is now County Clare in the region of the wild Atlantic coasts of Ireland, and in particular the rocky but beautiful lands called The Burren located to the south of Galway Bay.

Many of our forebears chose to seek wider horizons and new opportunities by migrating to other parts of the world. These journeys were often taken during times of hardship at home, such as the 19th century. Now living and creating their own stories in many countries, families will have varying degrees of awareness, contact and identification with the Clan and its history.

The Cliffs of Moher

Over the years, our forebears, under many variations of the family name such as OLoughlin, O’Loghlen, Lochnan, Loughnane, O’Loghlin, Lochlen and a host of other names from distaff sides, have kept in touch with individuals and families from time to time, according to their situations. We aim to assist these interactions and friendships.
