my maiden name was mulelly (a derivative of mullaly) I know for certain that my ancestors were from ireland. My side of the family migrated to england in the mid 18c,I have no idea where all the rest went and so are possibly still called mullaly or similar. My great -great grandfather was John Mullaly married in Manchester to caroline Nye in 1864 . I have her history back another 2 generations but can find little about John's parents James and Bridget . Anyone who may know anything I would be delighted to hear from. My home address is 7, Hanson Road Liskeard Cornwall UK

TREE OF THOMAS MULLALY OF TUAM, GALWAY

The Clann O'MAEILALAIDH is a branch of the Ui Maine descended from Maine Mor, the common ancestor of all the Ui Maine. Through an oversight the final "D" is unaspirated in the Book of Lecan and
pronounced O'MAEILALAIH. The name was adopted by the 62nd generation of the Irish race in the latter half of the 9th Century as Domhnall O'Maolalaigh, the first with this name must have flourished previous between 750-800 AD.

Hello,
I have been researching my maiden name (Mullahy) that does not have a lot of information about it. I know that my ancestors came from Gortskehy, Kilcommon and Robeen in the County of Mayo. I can go back to Pat Mullahy and Mary Crowe being married in 1858 but that is about it. I wonder if the records I am seeing that have your spelling and also Mullany is just a varient?? Any help you can give is greatly appreciated.

Hi Barb,Well I have discovered on thing about my family over here in the UK. We originated in Ireland ,reputedly from the Dublin area(but I have no proof of that, just family lore)My lot have spelt their surname in several different ways over the years...Mullaly/Mullaley/Mulally/Mulelly and I dare say there may be others I have not yet come accross.It is an expensive exercise sending off for certificates just in the hope they may be related! They seemed to settle down to the version I was born with around the mid-late 18th century and at the same time appear to have gradually adopted protestantism if their marriage certificates are anything to go by. The introduction of compulsory education in this country might have had an influence in standardising the spelling of my branch (they settled in the Manchester area of England, but some may have gone abroad I think). If you would like to have a look at my line to see if there are any who crop up on yours then I would be happy to send it either surface or e-mail.Sincerely, Kate

Mulally

Kate,
You are so kind to extend your family tree to me. Yes I do know how expensive it can be and sometimes completely futile anyway. Do the school lists work? I have had no luck with documents from the churches or the state with my ancestor James Mullahy. So this is sort of a long shot... Anyway, I would appreciate your line so I can just rule it out ( maybe) anyway. Thanks so much and good luck in your search too. Any other tips you can give me about researching in Ireland around the 1850's back? That is where I am really stuck.

Sincerely,

Barb Mullahy DeNault

Hi Barb,
I would be pleased to send the tree I have compiled but I think it would be tricky to send it via e-mail. However I will give it a go if you can forward your e-mail address to me. My e-mail is Katymort@btinternet.com
Cheers, Kate

Hi, I am from Cross, Co Mayo Ireland and I am tracing my ancestors who would have travelled to the USA in years gone by. My Father's name is Patrick Mullahy, my grandfather was Joseph (Joe) Mullahy originally from Kinconly Co Galway. There may also be links with Hollymount Co Mayo. I would be interested in hearing from anyone Mullahy who's ancestors would have orignated from Ireland. I can be emailed at karenmullahy@eircom.net.
