McBride
 
The name McBride in Ireland is derived from the
native Gaelic Mac Giolla Bhrighde Sept. which
translates from Irish as ' a devotee of Saint Brigid'.
The Sept was located in County Donegal in the
North West of the county.  Some decendants may
be of Scottish settlers in the seventeenth century.
