Origin of the Name Moroney

The ancient history of the name Moroney was found in the archives. Variants of the Irish name Moroney include Maroney, O'Moroney and Mulrooney. These names are derived from the Gaelic O'Maolruanaidh sept name, meaning 'descendant of the follower of Ruanaidh'.
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
There were several septs of the name in mediaeval times, one of them being located in County Fermanagh where they were powerful before the rise of the MacGuires, and where they survive in small numbers today under the name Mulrooney. The name has become Moroney and Maroney in the western Counties and especially in County Clare from where it spread to neighbouring Counties, becoming well established in County Kerry .
The Moroney 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 Moroney descendants.
