MALLOY Family History

Recorded as Maloy, Malloy, Molloy and Mulloy, but more correctly with the O' prefix, this is a famous Irish clan surname. It usually originates from the pre 10th century Old Gaelic name O'Maolmhuidh, meaning the descendant of the Great Chief. The first chief it is said, was descended from Niall of the Nine Hostages, the 4th century High King of Ireland, and the sept which took its name from him ruled over Fercal, a district covering several baronies of County Offaly. Many of this notable family had friendly relations with the English crown, and the name is recorded as O'Mulmoy in early English records.

I have just discovered my Great-Great Grandfather was Richard Maloy born near Dublin on October 13, 1839. His father is listed as W. Maloy - his mother Margret (Kelly) Maloy Siblings Mary Ann born 1842 Roseana born 1846 Ellen born 1848 Thomas born 1863 I believe the above were all born in / near Dublin. Can anyone help me with my family? I am planning a trip to Ireland next year and would love to connect with anyone still in the area. Thanks so much! Larry
