O' Cróinin

 

The name Cronin is from a diminutive cron meaning ‘swarthy’ or ‘yellow’. The origin of this family name lies in Cork, particularly the West of the County, where place names such as Cooscronin and Liscronin are testament to the prominence of the name. The name is also found plentifully in counties Kerry and Limerick.
