(Part 1 of 3) The Clearly name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Clearly story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Cleary surname (which may be a variation of Clark) origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Cleary story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
