Welcome to the official home page of the world wide Boylan Clan. If your name is or was Boylan or if you simply had a Boylan ancestor, you are in some way, a member of the Boylan Clan. For spelling variants see our name.
On May 15, 2009 the Boylan Clan was accepted and registered as an official Irish Sept by Finte na hÉireann / Clans of Ireland, which is the independent authority for registering Irish Clans.
Boylan ancestors have been noted bootmakers from over 20,000 years ago up to recent times. We have been excellent horsemen, and cartwrights for over 5000 years, developed mining, farming, blacksmithing, and military arts more than 3000 years ago and have been traders for 2000 years, more recently architects, engineers and pilots.
The Roman Centurion Colla Uais, our oldest known ancestor, founded Clan Colla around AD 331. DNA Analysis has confirmed that Clan OBoylan is a branch of Clan Colla. High King Colla Uais Y-Chromosome has been passed down to current day male members of Clan Boylan, from father to son for 1700 years.
Boylan Kings hereditarily ruled the Kingdom of Dartraighe, Ireland from about 500 to 1457, at one time (AD 1093) controlling all of Airgialla (Oriel including Monaghan, Meath and Louth). Boylan Clan descendants have spread out all over the globe. Our ranks include many noted academics, artists, musicians and poets. The Donohues and one of several King septs are parts of Clan OBoylan.
