The Maloney Family

Maloney family crest

(Crest No. 119. Plate 7.)

THE Maloney family is descended from Milesius, King of Spain, through the line of his son Heber. The founder of the family was Cormac Cas, son of Olliol Ollum, King of Munster, A. D. 177, and Sabia, daughter of Con of the Hundred Battles, King of Ireland, A. D. 148. The blood of Heber and Heremon is thus united in this family. The ancient name was Miollainneach, which means “The Thoughtful.” The head of the sept was entitled Chief of Kiltanon, and the possessions of the clan were located in the present barony of Tulla, County of Clare.
