The Irish Malarkey surname comes from the Gaelic "ó Maoilearca," a patronymic meaning a descendant of Maoilearca, a follower of St. Earc.

Malarkey Early Origins



The surname Malarkey was first found in Tirconnell (Irish: Tír Chonaill) present day Donegal, located in Northwestn Ireland in the province of Ulster, where they held a family seat as a branch of the O'Connell's. Irish history, after the Norman Conquest of England, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland, Wales and the whole of Europe before the Norman Conquest from the 1st to 7th centuries. Many Irish clanns, sept names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found later in Connacht.
