Welcome to the Clan MacCarthy Society Website!
The grand Celtic clan of "MacCarthy" has many spelling derivations that have evolved over time. Here are a few: McCarthy, McCarty, McArthy, McArty, MacCarty, McCurdy, McAthey, MacCarthaigh, McClarty, McCardy, McKarty, etc. I could go on and on, but you get the picture.
Our Society, founded in 1992, is principally but not exclusively, comprised of members from Canada and the United States. Please take a moment to read our objectives and consider becoming a member.
