Vallely—This name is principally found in the Fews district of Co. Armagh, written in Gaelic Mac Imhailale. The name is found commonly in the Parishes of Ballymoyer, Derrynoose, Kilclooney, and Lisnadill, and what is strange, the great majority of those bearing the name are red or sandy-haired, though no way related. The name is written McEvallely in old records of the 17th century.
