MCCREADY Family HistoryRecorded in many forms as shown below, this is an early Irish surname. It originates either from the pre 10th century Gaelic "Mac Conriada", with the interesting translation of the son of the trained hound, or possibly from "Mac Riada", meaning the son of the expert one. Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, revered elders, or some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", male descendant of, or "Mac", denoting "son of". The clans belonged to the province of Ulster, and were erenagh families in the barony of Raphoe, Co.
