Early Origins of the Gillogly family
The surname Gillogly was first found in Leitrim
where they held a family seat
as a part of the O'Mulvey Clann. 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 Sligo
. They are believed to be descended through the O'Mulveys from Dermod Ruanach, chief of one of the 'Four Tribes of Tara' and a King of Ireland
in the 7th century.
