Mullarkey Family HistoryRecorded in many spellings including O'Mullarkey, Mullarkey, Malarkey, Mollarkey, Earc, and even Herrick, this is a famous Irish surname. It is perhaps surprisingly, a surname of religious origins, the first nameholder being a follower or devotee as they were often called, of St Earc, a 7th century saint. Almost all Irish surnames have a 'nickname' origin, and this is a good example. The original spelling was as O' Maoilearca, and it is said that the clan migrated from Tirconnell to Connacht in the 17th century, and are now to be found almost exclusively in the western counties of Sligo, Mayo, and Galway.
