TULLY Family History

There are two possible sources of this interesting Irish name, Tully being an Anglicization of either of them. The first possibility is the Gaelic "O'Taithlagh", meaning descendant of "Taithleach", a byname meaning quiet and peaceable. Alternatively, Tully may originate in the Gaelic "O'Maoc Tuile", which means "the descendant of the devotee of (St.) Tuile", a personal name derived from "toil", meaning "will (of God)". Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", meaning grandson or male descendant of, or "Mac", denoting "son of". There seems to be some confusion as to where in Ireland the name Tully originates because it is not known which Gaelic name the Anglicized forms, Tully, Tally, Tilly and Talty derive from, but generally it is thought to be a County Clare name, with Tully being prevalent in County Galway...
