A Brief History of Clan Munro (Information taken from several sources as listed below, including but not exclusively Wikipedia)

he clan name Munro, means "Man of the Ro River". This supports the traditional origin of the clan from the River Roe area in Northern Ireland. This is an area near modern-day Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

radition states that Chief Donald Munro, son of an Irish chief, O’Caan, came to the help of King Malcolm II of Scotland, expelling the invading Danes. However, this tradition only exists in writing from the late 17th century.[1]
