Bird—The names Heany, in North Connacht; Henaghan and Henahan, in South Mayo and districts surrounding Tuam, Co. Galway; and McEneany. McEneney, and McNeney, in South Monaghan, Louth, and Meath, have been anglicised Bird, presumably because the word "can" (bird) enters into the construction of the names. The Gaelic of the surnames are respectively O h-Eanaigh, O h-Eanacháin, and Mac An-Eanaigh.

Although ostensibly set in England, this story was penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
