The Curley project has been in a lull lately, with not much news to report on. I recently discovered a few more Irish manuscripts of the 14th-15th centuries which mention Mc Oirghiallaigh / Oirealla named individuals, and I've added those manuscripts to the Irish page. In all these manuscripts, Mc Oirghiallaigh is spelled pretty consistently the same. The name spelling in these manuscripts consistently utilizes the same root word as the Airghialla / Oirghialla kingdom, which supports a connection between the kingdom name and the family name. In addition, all these manuscripts also include Mc Toirdealbhaigh as a different name assigned to different individuals other than Mc Oirghiallaigh. So there is no wiggle room left for any speculation that Mac Oirghiallaigh may be just a different spelling variation of the Mc Toirdealbhaigh name. The multiple manuscripts leave no doubt that Mac Oirghiallaigh is an Irish family name in its own right - separate, distinct, and unrelated to Mc Toirdealbhaigh / Turlough. The Mc Oirghiallaigh / Oirealla name now has a well established record of being in use from the 14th century up until the 16th century, when it became Anglicized and recorded as M'Kirilie or phonetically similar forms.
