The names Kilfoil and Gilfoyle are derived from the native Gaelic Mac Giolla Phoil sept that was located in County Offaly and in surrounding Counties. This name literally translates as 'devotee of Saint Paul' and as a consequence a variant anglicized form of this Gaelic name is Powell.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
