The O'Doherty Heritage website is designed to be your place for all things Ó Dochartaigh. Whether your name or ancestry is from a Doherty, Dougherty, Daugherty, Docherty, Dogherty, if your family used another spelling of our name, or if you're from one of our related Donegal families, such as the McDevitt/McDaid, McBride, McConlogue, or others–we welcome you to the O'Doherty Heritage website!

The vision of the O'Doherty Heritage is "Telling our story, uniting us together." This was the same vision of our ancestors, the Ó Dochartaigh patriarchs, when they established our Clan motto, Ár nDúthchas–which means 'Our Heritage'. Below are the goals of O'Doherty Heritage:

TELLING OUR STORY:

  • Share our heritage with our entire Clan

  • Research, document, & bring our history to life

  • Curate a digital Clan genealogy research library

UNITING US TOGETHER:

  • Encourage quality genealogical research

  • Promote clan identity and pride in our heritage

  • Facilitate communication amongst our clanfolk

Maps of Inishowen

The Inishowen Peninsula, the northernmost place in Ireland, was the homeland of Clann Ó Dochartaigh. Through many early maps there are references to the Ó Dochartaighs, drawings of castles and fortifications, and other interesting details which shed light on the geography and history of our homeland. As Ulster was one of the last places in Ireland to be conquered, it was also one of the last to be accurately represented in historic maps. Maps below are used for research purposes only and are courtesy of their various curators.
