SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Maloy: Very rare: Down. MacLysaght considers it a variant of Mac Cloy, q.v. but see also Molloy.
Molloy: Very numerous: all areas, especially Connacht and Midlands. Ir. Ó Maolmhuaidh, ? noble chief. (1) A major sept of the Southern Uí Néill in Offaly; (2) A sept of Síol Muireadhaigh in Roscommon. Also stands for Ó Maol Aoidh. SGG.
Mulloy: fairly rare: Mayo etc. Ir. Ó Maol Aoidh (servant of Hugh). To be distinguished from the Molloys of the Midlands, Ó Maolmhuaidh. Both names are inextricably mixed in Connacht. IF.
Ó Maolmhuaidh: Molloy: an-líonmhar: gach aird - Lár na Tíre & Connachta go sonrach. Feara Ceall ab'ainm dá ndúiche in Uíbh Fhailí, seilbh a choimeád siad go dtí an 17 céad. Mhaoigh siad sinsearacht ó Niall Naoi-giallach ach ghlacadar oifig ó na Sasanaigh mar "Mheirgire an Rí" - rud a chabhraigh leo a chuid tailte a choiméad, b'fhéidir. Tá dhá thuairim faoi shinsearacht Molloy/Mulloy i gConnachta: (1) craobh den dream thuas a shocraigh i Ros Comáin, nó (2) Ó Maolaoidh, q.v.
