Scotish : MacCabe
Sept of Clan MacLeod of Lewis
Motto: "Aut Vincere Aut Mori"
Translation: "Either Conquer Or Die"
The McCabes trace back to the MacCabes of Isle of Lewis in Scotland. There they were a sept of Clan MacLeod of Lewis, who were one of the earliest organized lighthouse keepers. In the 1300's, the MacCabes left the Isle of Lewis for Ireland to become gallowglasses (mercenaries) in the armies of the O'Reillys, the O'Rourkes and the MacMahons. They settled mostly in the Counties of Monaghan and Cavan.
