O Mullaney

The Clan Mullaney was from a Sept. which did not have a large or wealthy social structure and a directly linked family coat of arms is not easily found.  The one (not displayed here) which has been accepted as the oldest with links to Mullaney's is:

ARMS:      Sable three fleur-de-lis argent.  (Black shield with three white fleur-de-lis).

CREST:     A church and spire proper.

MOTTO:   Fortiter et Fideliter.  (Boldly and Faithfully).

     The census of 1659 finds Mullany families in Kilkenny and finds Mullany as the principal name in Waterford.  In the same records, O'Mullany is found as a principal name of County Roscommon, oparticularly in the barony of Boyyle.  More anciently, in Milesian Families, O'Mullany is cited as a Dalcassion Family in Waterford, Sligo, and Longford.(2)

      The surname Mullaney and its many variants is very much an Irish name, like so many others before, it has gone through various changes, none too serious, however between them all there are around 50 different spellings for Mullaney. Pronunciation is also a point of contention with many, the most popular spelling in Ireland in the 1800's was Mullany followed by Mullanny with only a few Mullaney's. By the 1900's the situation had been reversed with Mullaney the most common spelling, this resulted in the name being pronounced "Mul  lane  y", with the "lane" part pronounced  Lane, as in meaning, narrow road. My understanding is that it was always, and should always, be pronounced as "Mull  an  ey", with the "an" part pronounced Ann, as in the girls name.

      Many of the variants come from countries like America and England where the Irish took up residence after the disasters which fell about them in their own country through the 17th, 18th, and 19th, centuries.  America produced more variations than England, this was due mainly to the system which was responsible for translating a verbally strong, rich Irish brogue into written English, sometimes by clerics who themselves could not speak, let alone write the language.

     The name can be traced back without difficulty to the early 1500's where the clan was seated in the
location of Lough Arrow and Lough Ce, (now Lough Key), on the County Roscommon and County Sligo border. Trace ability can reach further back to the 5th, and 6th, century in the territory of Tir Eanna.  The rulers of that area were the Clan Diarmund, Gall of Enda, later in the 11th, century, MacGiolla Eanaig, and then Maoileanaigh.

CENEL EANNA (descendants of Enda), ENDA MacGIOLLA EANAIGH, later
O'MAOILEANAIGH, which was anglicised........O'MULANY, MULLANNY, MULLANEY,
this is recorded in the "Annals of the Four Masters" in 1500 A.D.

     Early Mullaney's migrated from their ancient territory at the source of the Boyle River close to the border between the counties Roscommon, Sligo and Mayo, which was bounded by the Breedoge River in the east, the Lung River to the west, the Suck River to the south and Lough Technet (now Lough Gara) to the north.  They moved north west into County Mayo giving their name to the County Market Town of Crossmolina. They moved north into County Sligo near to the Ox Mountains, where can be found Mullany's Cross. Mullaney's also moved north east across the Curlew Mountains, which in later years was to become their undefeated battle ground against marauding invaders, to the southern shore of Lough Arrow, where the border between Counties
Sligo and Roscommon skirts the edge of the Townland of BALLYMULLANNY.

    BALLY: pre-anglicised was BAILE, generally taken to denote TOWN,... In middle Irish
    (900-1200), the term Baile was taken to mean, PLACE or HOMESTEAD. Therefore,
    "BALLYMULLANNY" is identified with Homestead, Place or Town of the Mullaney's.
    The more modern understanding and usage of Bally, is commonly identified with the
    concept of "Townland" being the smallest territorial unit recognized in Ireland.

     Mullaney's populated around half of the 32 counties of Ireland in the period of Griffith's Valuation which was taken in the mid 1800's. Whilst their homelands were in the Sligo / Roscommon area there is evidence of strong Mullaney foundations in Tipperary, Mayo and Cork. Roughly, they occupied those counties west of a line drawn from the southern edge of Donegal down to the eastern edge of Waterford.

On the 15th, August 1599, four hundred years ago the Mullaney's were part of the men of Moylurg who defended the pass over the Curlew Mountains against the English and defeated them.

"Mullaney"- is a registered clan with the "Clans of Ireland Office" in Ireland.

Jane Mullaney, my grandmother, was born in Mohill, Co. Leitrim  in 1864. Her parents were John Mullaney and Mary Kennedy. She spent  her early childhood in Mohill, County Leitrim , With her younger brother and sister, Henery and Margaret.  After her father's death, immigrated with her mother to America at age 13 [1876].  Jane and her mother were processed  in NYC at the old Castle Clinton in lower Manhattan.  This was the immigrant station prior to the construction of Ellis Island immigration center in the 1890's.  The structure still stands in Battery Park, adjacent to the Statue of Liberty Ferry.
   Jane married another Leitrim immigrant, Edward C. McGrail, and had three children: Edward [my father], Genivieve, and John.
      Jane died on Staten Island in 1937, where she lived with her son, Edward.  She is buried with her husband in Old Calvary Cemetry, Queens, NY.  She died many years before I was born, and I regret never having known her.

(These incidents speak for themselves,and need no further comment)
Christmas 1849
-Pat Mullany (age 12) and Peter Dunne (age 11) were whipped early 
in December, 1849, for stealing potatoes during the famine in Co. Leitrim. 
-Pat McSharry (age 13) spent Christmas, 1849, in the Carrick gaol;
he had been subjected to 27 whip lashes on the 20th of December.
"Did the gaol chaplain look on the frail, whipped body of a child and see
a parallel with the scourged body of Christ? Did he condone the punishments
or did the fact that the landlord, Mr. M. St. George, had donated land to 
the Church bind him to silent collaboration with the system? Did Pat 
McSharry hear Christmas bells ring out in joyous celebration that year?"
         - Frankie Watson (1996)
           ("Leitrim Guardian" regarding the Carrick-on-Shannon Gaol)
