^Shea, this branch of the family write it O'Skee. O'Seaghdha was pro-
ounced in Irish "O'Shay-ah" or "O'She-a," and hence it has been
ariously anglicised O'Shea, O'Shee, Shea, and Shee. This branch of the
imily, in anglicising the name, omitted the final letter of " O'Sh^-a,"
nd doubled the then final e in " O'She," as in O'Shee. In England temp.

So early as A.J). 1095, we find mention made of Mathgamhain

'Skaghdha and OSeagha would be pronounced alike ; but, it may be observed that
