Connolly / O´Connoly
Conneely / Connelly

Debido a la falta de precisión que existió en la anglicanización de los apellidos gaélicos, pues su forma inglesa fue muchas veces realizada fonéticamente, durante los siglos XVII y XVIII por no estar familiarizados quienes lo hicieron con el idioma irlandés, este apellido ha sido muchas veces confundido con Connelly y Kinnealy. Pero quienes ahora lo llevan vienen, en gran mayoría, de dos clanes gaélicos, los O'Conghailaigh (de Connacht y Monaghan) y los O'Coingheallaigh (de Munster).

A number of original Irish names have been anglicized as Connolly. The O'Conghalaigh from Conghal , as fierce as a wolf, were based in Connacht. The name arose as O'Coingheallaigh in West Cork while Ulster Connolly's derive from both the O' Conghalaigh of Fermanagh and the Monaghan Connolly's for whom a number of separate origins are suggested as a branch of the MacMahons. The latter Monaghan family has been the most prominent of the Connolly's recorded as having chiefs of the name up to the seventeenth century and producing among others Speaker William Conolly [sic] reputedly the richest man in the eighteenth century Ireland and James Connolly labour leader, socialist writer and signatory of the 1916 Proclamation of Independence.

Origen: Irlandés. While many Irish names are familiar, their past incarnations are often shrouded in mystery, reflecting the ancient Gaelic heritage of their bearers. The original Gaelic form of the name Connolly is O Conghalaigh, O Conghaile, or O Coingheallaigh. First found in the county of Monaghan where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
