Early Origins of the Shalloo family
The surname Shalloo was first found in Cork (Irish: Corcaigh) the ancient Kingdom of Deis Muin (Desmond), located on the southwest coast of Ireland in the province of Munster, where they held a family seat as an offshoot of the Cahills, being directly descended from Tomhas na Sealbuide, or Thomas of the Seals. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found later in Clare where the name assumed Shalloo and represented the first recorded reference to the name.
