    Strange they have a seat in Scotland, yet the name clearly says they are Irish.
    McInroe is Scottish. Roe from the Gaelic Rua - Red hair. But the name can be found in County Antrim Northern Ireland.

The glottal stop is another regional aberration

    Same with spanish and norman names, a lot were altered to make them easier to pronounce. It's when you start digging in to names you begin to appreciate what mongrel nations we all are. All the tribes mixing together. Makes extreme nationalism and ethnic cleansing even more silly than it is already.
    I have some Irish Gaelic

    I know nothing about the Tippins line.
    Any information on any of these branches would be fun.
    Sorry
