Harrington Very numerous: all areas, especially Munster. Ir. Ó h-Iongardail now pronounced Ó h-Úrdail in W Cork & S Kerry. It also stands for Ó h-Arrachtáin which is associated with Connacht. MacLysaght also mentions another Connacht name, Ó h-Oireachtaigh which has undergone this anglicisation. IF & SGG.
Ó h-Arrachtáin Harrington: líonmhar gach áird seachas Ulaidh. Ach ní mór a thuiscint gur galldú Harrington ar Ó h-Iongardail & Ó h-Oireachtaigh, leis. Baineann Ó h-Arrachtáin le clann de chuid Uí Maine, Gaillimh. Arrachta = cróga. IF & SI.
Ó h-Iongardail Harrington: líonmhar: Mumhain & rl. Ó h-Úrdail i gcaint na ndaoine i gCorcaigh thiar agus Ciarraí theas. Sa 17 céad, deineadh O'Hungerdell díobh ar dtús. Ciallaíonn iongar cruatan nó anró ach ní léir brí an tsloinne seo, le fírinne. IF.
