Bloomer—Bloomer is the anglicised form of O'Gormley in the east and southern districts of County Tyrone, and in the north-western parts of Co. Armagh—in Gaelic, O Goirmshleaghaigh; though there are different septs bearing the name of Gormley, having local forms of the name in Gaelic. This name is anglicised Grimley, formerly pronounced Germley, in the Madden district of the parish of Derrynoose, lying to the west of Keady, Co. Armagh.
