CONLEY Family HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Connelly, Connolly and Conley, this is an anglicized form of the Old Gaelic pre 10th century "O'Conghaile". The Gaelic prefix "O" indicates "male descendant of", plus the personal byname "Conghaile", from "con", a hound and "gal", valour; hence "descendants of the Hound of Valour". The O'Conghailes were an ancient Connacht sept, who with the passage of time, separated and dispersed into three main branches. The chief branch resided in County Meath and was one of the "Four Tribes of Tara".
