The Degan's are not from county Clare as per James Degan. They are from County Offaly the city of Clara.
The name Degan is what is known as Black Irish.
The are supposed ancestors of an alliance from Spain with the Irish people during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I in her dealings with the Spanish armadas.
It turns out the Spanish hated the english as much as the Irish did. Well anyway the spaniards stayed on in Ireland hence Black Irish= Black Hair= DEGAN
