The Moloney Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Moloney family history parchment:
Molony is a completely Gaelic name derived from the Irish O'Maoldhomhnaigh meaning a descendant of a servant of the church. The Molony sept or clan originated in Kiltanon near Tulla in East Clare. They are still well represented in this area although they have also spread out to the neighbouring counties of Limerick and Tipperary. There are some Molonys in County Tipperary who do not originate from the same group but who are really O'Maolfhachtna. Two Molonys were for seventy years successive bishops of Killaloe, with its twelth century cathedral and churches. Other Molonys of note include John O'Moloney the younger (1617-1702), University professor in Paris, and Colonel Sir James Stacpoole Moloney. The latter took part in the ill-fated attacked on Monereal in 1786, when ninety-three of the one hundred who took part were killed. In America Martin Molony (1847-1929) - Irish Bord Millionaire is remembered for his generosity to deserving causes. Success on that scale could come to few, but there were many thousands of families and individuals who left Ireland for the New World with such a dream in their minds. In the nineteenth century poverty and unemployment were so rife that there must have seemed little choice out to emigrant in hope of better things. Among these were a number of Molonys. Jerry and John Moloney, from Aglis, sailed from Cork to New York in 1811 on the 'radius'. On 10th Frebruary 1848 Pat Moloney left Liverpool on the 'Sarah Sands', also bound, as most of them were for New York.
