~origin of the name~
The McHargue's were originally the Clan Graham
of Scotland, but when driven out of Scotland to
Ireland, they spelled their name backwards, as
"Maharg," to avoid being captured and killed.
Over time, the name Maharg evolved into other
spellings/verions/septs, such as
Meharg, McHarg, McHargue, McIlhagga, McQuarg.
The Graham Clan (therefore the McHargue Clan)
tartan, badge, motto, etc., are shown on
our Alexander McHargue page.
