Where did the Irish McNally family come from? What is the Irish McNally family crest and coat of arms? When did the McNally family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the McNally family history?The original Gaelic form of McNally was Mac an Fhailghigh, which is derived from the word failgheach, which means poor man.
Those scribes in Ireland during the Middle Ages recorded names as they sounded. Consequently, in this era many people were recorded under different spellings each time their name was written down. Research on the McNally family name revealed numerous spelling variations, including McNally, McAnully, McAnalley, McAnally and others.
First found in counties Armagh and Monaghan, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Thousands of Irish families left for North American shores in the 19th century. These people were searching for a life unencumbered with poverty, hunger, and racial discrimination. Many arrived to eventually find such conditions, but many others simply did not arrive: victims of the diseased, overcrowded ships in which they traveled to the New World. Those who lived to see North American shores were instrumental in the development of the growing nations of Canada and the United States. A thorough examination of passenger and immigration lists has disclosed evidence of many early immigrants of the name McNally:
