The Curran name, and its variations, are popular throughout Ireland, most particularly in county Donegal in the northern province of Ulster. The name comes from the Gaelic word “corradh” meaning ‘spear’. One of the most famous Irish Currans was John Philpot Curran, a barrister and a nationalist, whose daughter was engaged to Robert Emmett.
