DALLY Family HistoryThis interesting name of Medieval Irish origin. It is one of the forms of the famous clan name O' Daly, itself a derivative of the pre 10th century Old Gaelic name O' Dalaigh. The prefix O' indicates male descendant of, plus the personal nickname 'dalach' from 'dail', meaning an assembly or meeting place as in Dail Eireann. The chief O' Daly clan belonged to County Westmeath, and several namebearers distinguished themselves in the field of literature, including the first recorded namebearer (see below).
