An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


All Irish surnames have a long, ancient Gaelic history behind them. The original Gaelic form of the name Kinealy is O Cinnfhaolaidh, which is derived from "ceann," which means "head," and "faol," which means "wolf."

Kinealy Early Origins



The surname Kinealy was first found in Limerick (Irish: Luimneach) located in Southwestern Ireland, in the province of Munster, where they held a family seat as chiefs in the barony of Connello, from olden times up to the 12th century when they were dispersed by the Anglo Norman invasion by Strongbow, the Earl of Pembroke in 1172.
