Origin of the Name Moloughney

The ancient history of the name Moloughney was found in the archives. Meaning 'servant of the church', variants of Moloughney include Maloney, O'Molony and Molony. This Irish surname is of true Gaelic stock and is seldom found with the original prefix 'O'. They were a Dalcassian sept who belonged to Kiltanon near Tulla in County Clare, spreading to the adjoining Counties of Limerick and Tipperary, where today they are to be found in their greatest numbers. Two O'Moloneys of the Kiltanon sept were successive Bishops of Killaloe for a period of more than seventy years. The younger John O'Moloney, 1617-1702, was remarkable both for his intellectual attainments as a University Professor in Paris, and later for his resistance to the persecution of Catholics in Ireland .
The Moloughney 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 Moloughney descendants.
