DELAHUNT Family History

Recorded as Delahunt and Delahunty, this interesting and unusual surname is Irish. It derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic O' Dulchaointigh, meaning the male descendant of the satirist! The vast majority of Irish clan names do originate from a nickname for the first chief of the clan, and this seems to be another example. However we were surprised to find that satirists existed seven centuries or more ago. A more likely explanation is that the original chief was a preacher of some sort, but not a churchman.
