Origin of the Name Molloy

The origin of the name Molloy was found in the archives. Variants of Molloy include Malloy, Miley, Millea and Slowey. This Gaelic sept were of the Southern Ui Neill, and are descended from the famous Niall of the Nine Hostages, King of Ireland , A. D. 371. The head of the sept was O'Molloy, Chief Lord of Fercal, a district covering several baronies of County Offaly. The Molloys of Connacht are called in Irish O'Maoil, a name which has many anglicized forms such as Millea, Miley, Mullee, and Malloy. An important branch of this sept whose head was known as the Green Molloy, migrated to County Roscommon. In modern times they are to be found in east Connacht and Offaly. In the Cavan-Monaghan area of Ulster a variant of the name is Slowey.
The Molloy coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Molloy descendants.
