    Maguire is a name from Fermanagh in modern Northern Ireland, for some reason Northern Ireland is only mentioned on here if someone has scotch-irish descent, there is more to n.ireland than the Ulster Scots.
    Some other examples of northern irish surnames are Donnelly, O’Kane, o’neill, McGuinness, O’Hanlon, Mulgrew, McDonnell, McCann, McLaughlin, Cassidy
