Dunn Family HistoryDunn (Dunne) ? Meaning ?brown? Dunne is a very popular name in Ireland. The sept started in the midlands, in Leix, where at one time they were Lords of Iregan, one of the important families in Lenister. In the 12th century the chief poet of Leinster was Giolla-na-Naomh O Dunn. They were very active in the Jacobite wars, and afterwards they emigrated to the USA, where they served in the church, the law and the army. In Ulster the more usual form of the name is Dunn. In recent years Dunne?s Stores, a countrywide chain store group, has become a household name.
