THE IRISH IN IOWA

Irish in Iowa Surname of the Month - APR 2002
McNALLY, McNALLEY

 Macnally, MacAnally and Nally all share the same original Irish origins, in the two Irish names Mac an fhailghigh, "son of the poor man", and Mac Con Uladh, "son of the hound of Ulster". As might be expected, the latter name is almost entirely confined to Ulster, in particular to that part of the modern province originally called Uladh, the south-east, including most of what are now counties Armagh and Monaghan. Today, the anglicized versions of the name remain very common in these counties, with the "Mac-"forms in the majority, Outside Ulster, the principal origin of the name is in north-west Connacht, in counties Roscommon and Mayo, where it is said that the name was adopted by the descendants of Norman settlers. The most common form in these counties is the simple "Nally". In 1890, McNally was concentrated in counties Antrim, Armagh and Monaghan, (MacNally was among the 20 most common names in Monaghan in 1970) while Nally was almost exclusive to Roscommon and Mayo. Traces of the family are found in the placenames of the north and
west, with Ballymacanally in Magheralin parish in Co. Down, Cahermacanally in Killursa in Co. Galway and Tanmacnally in Ematris in Co. Monaghan.
