The Irish Times: Irish Ancestors (O'Hara) — O'Hara Surname History O'Hara is a phonetic anglicisation of Ó hEaghra. The family claim descent from Eaghra, lord of Luighne (the modern Leyney) in Co. Sligo, who died in 976 and who was himself, in the traditional genealogies, of the family of Olloil Ollum, king of Munster. The O'Haras remain strongly associated with Co. Sligo, where they were chiefs in two areas, Ó hEaghra Buidhe ("fair") around Collooney, and Ó hEaghra Riabhach ("grey") at Ballyharry, more properly "Ballyhara". In the fourteenth century a branch of the family migrated north to the Glens of Antrim and established themselves in the area around the modern town of Ballymena. There they intermarried with powerful local families and acquired great prominence themselves. Another branch, in Sligo, acquired the title Barons Tyrawley in the early 18th century and acquired very large land-holdings in counties Sligo and Leitrim.
The site includes: O'Hara households by county and parish in the Primary Valuation property survey of 1848-64.

Ulster Ancestry: O'Hara — This name is equally common in Ulster, Leinster and Connacht, its main centres being Dublin, Co. Sligo and Co. Antrim. The name is in Gaelic Ó hEaghra and the family was originally of Co. Sligo, descendants of one Eaghra, pronounced 'ara', a chief of Leyny in that county.
In the fourteenth century a branch migrated to the Glens of Antrim and settled at Crebilly near Ballymena. Here it became an important sept and entered into several marriages and alliances with the great families of Antrim. In the mid-nineteenth century O'Haras were still found concentrated in the barony of Lower Glenarm.
At the beginning of the twentieth century the name was being used interchangeably with Haren in several parts of Co. Fermanagh and so some at least of the O'Haras of that county will be originally O'Harens, Gaelic Ó hÁráín. The O'Harens were erenaghs of Ballymactaggart.
