Hardy, Hardie - Anglicised Surnames in Ireland

Padraig Mac Giolla-Domhnaigh
1923

Hardy, Hardie—These two names are the anglicised forms of M'Hardy, a sept of both the clan McIntosh and clan Farquharson. The name is found in N.E. Ulster, and its Gaelic form is Mac Chardaigh. The name has no common origin with an Irish sept of the name of Hardy, which is the anglicised form of Mac Giolla-deacair.
