The name Donnelly in Ireland is
derived from the native Gaelic

Gaelic word meaning 'valour'.
The Sept was based in County
Donegal originally but migrated
to County Tyrone. It is in the
Province of Ulster that the majority
of descendants can still be found.
A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
