MARONEY Family History

Recorded as Moroney, Maroney, Mulrooney and Rooney, this is a surname of Gaelic origins. It derives from the original O' Maolruanaidh which translates as the descendant of the follower of Ruan, an early Christian holy man who is believed to have lived and preached in both Ireland and Scotland in the 7th century a.d. Most Gaelic surnames originate from the nickname or occupation of the original chief, and there is a wide group which have religious significance based upon being a devotee or follower of a saint. Perhaps surprisingly although the caln was renouwned for its literary skills, in later times this did not prevent them from taking on a more warlike approach far removed from any apparent religious persuasion...

My great grandmother was Helen Maroney. Her parents died young, and we don't know much about that part of the family. I was hoping anyone would something. I know what area and town we are from, but I want to know more.


I live in California, but grew up in Texas. My mother is from Dublin, and her father was from Arklow. I am a fifth generation American, but do not really know where my ‘Maroney’ side of the family comes from.
