Dalriada was named for the clan known as the Dál Riata whose origins were in the coastal region of north-east Antrim.
The earliest settlement from Dalriada in Ireland to Scotland was probably in the late Second Century when Cairbre Riada, Son of Conary, King of Ireland, and Grandson of Con of the Hundred Battles, established a presence on the west coast of Alba.
In the early part of the Sixth Century Fergus moved the capital of Dalriada to Dunadd in Scotland and from this point forth, the Irish Dalriada was subservient to the Scottish kingdom.

 Kenneth MacAlpin, "the Hardy"
Kenneth Mac Alpin is generally considered the first king the united Scots of Dalriada and the Picts, and so of Scotland, north of a line between the Forth and Clyde rivers.
Dalriada was established by Irish immigrants, or raiders, from county Antrim, Ireland around 500 AD., although Scottish raiders had been coming to these shores since circa 330 AD.
Now Kenneth's sovereignty of Dalriada was regarded as an obstacle to his becoming Ard-righ (High King) of Alban just as there is was sometimes a tendency to prevent the merging of two ancient noble families or houses.

 Clan Fergusson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The origin of the name Fergusson or Ferguson, "son of Fergus" (MacFhearguis in Gaelic), is shrouded by the mists of time.
Medieval historians recorded a tradition that the founder of Scotland's monarchy was a Fergus who lived in Ireland about 300 B.C. Historical research dating from the 13th century confirms that by 500 A.D. the Scots under King Fergus Mor had left Northern Ireland and became established in Dalriada, now Argyll.
From Fergus Mor, with a few early exceptions, descend all subsequent kings and queens of the Scots, including the present Queen of Great Britain.
