Now in our 64th year of activity, we are continuing to build upon the good work of the O'Malley Clan community in connecting with other O'Malleys from across the globe. We are grateful to Ireland101 and the Tribe101 team for giving us access to their Diaspora Engagement platform, and wide portfolio of websites, to help us connect with even more O'Malleys around the world. And with all the O’Malley surname variants they see on their system, including… Maillie, Maley, Malia, Malley, Mealey, Melia, O'Máille, O'Malia, O'Maile, O'Mealys.

So, take a look around the site and be sure to sign up and share this with your friends and family members!’
