The name Ross in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin|
having been brought to the country by settlers from Scotland,
especially during the seventeenth century. The native Gaelic
Mac Aindriu Sept also occasionally adopted Ross as the
anglicized form of their name, as well as the more usual
MacAndrew. The name Ross derives from the ancient Celtic
word "Ros", meaning "a promontory"
