Early Origins of the Mularkey family
The surname Mularkey 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
, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow
in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland
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.
