The names MacAwley, McAuley and Cawley

Gaelic Septs. The MacAmhlaoibh Sept
was located in County Fermanagh and
was a branch of the ruling Maguires.
The MacAmhalghaidh Sept was located
in County Westmeath where the name
is sometimes anglicized as Magawley.
Gawley and MacCawley are other

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
