Dunlap, Dunlop - Anglicised Surnames in Ireland

Padraig Mac Giolla-Domhnaigh
1923

Dunlap, Dunlop—These two Scottish names are anglicised forms of McDunlevy (Mac Duinnshléibhe), whose ancestors went to Scotland from eastern Ulster some 600 years ago. Delap is a more modern anglicisation. In Donegal and Derry, the O'Lappins (O'Lapáin) have assumed the name of Dunlap.
