GUILFOYLE Family HistoryRecorded in several forms including MacGilfoyle, Gilfoyle, Guilfoyle, and Kilfoyle, this is an Irish surname. It originates from the pre 10th century Gaelic name Mac Gilla Phoil, meaning "The son of the follower of St. Paul". It is said that some nameholders in Ireland called Powell derive from the same source, but this is difficult to quantify as the English and Welsh surname Powell is also well recorded in Ireland. The clan were once the chiefs of Kings County, which since the establishment of the Republic has been renamed Offaly.

My name is Pat Gilfoil but the original name was Guilfoyle. My grandfather came from Cork to the USA in 1906. His parents died shortly after arriving. His name was Howard J Gilfoil. Is there anybody that could be related?
