Muintir Uí Cheallaigh

A hearty welcome is extended to all who wish to learn more about the Kellys. So if you are an Ó Kelly, Kelly, Kelley or Ó Ceallaigh, whatever the spelling and you are from the traditional locations of the Old Clans – Tyrone, Wicklow, Wexford, Kilkenny, Meath or Uí Maine, and indeed other far flung places throughout the world, this is the website for you!

The Association Muintir Uí Cheallaigh was inaugurated in Roscommon Sinead-Colour-Creston 26 May 1995 in order to share knowledge, kinship and friendship among the Ó Ceallaighs, Ó Kellys and Kellys and to hold regular clan gatherings throughout the country.

All of us in the Clan are blessed with a noble and ancient name.
Our Clan is highly influential and respected throughout the world.

In 1351 William Boy held a great feast in his castle at Galley on the shores of Lough Ree, CountyRoscommon and as a result of it was responsible for the proverbial Failte Uí Cheallaigh.

Tadh Mor Ó Cheallaigh who fought with Brian Boru at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014 and from whose last words as he lay mortally wounded came our thrilling moto – “Turris Fortis Mihi Deus” (God is my strong tower).

If you would like to join us and become a member of our ancient clan all you have to do is go to our Membership Page and follow the link.
