It derives from the pre medieval Gaelic name O' Maolchathail translating as 'The male descendant of the follower of St Cathal', a 7th century saint. It is claimed that the clan originated from County Leix, where the name in former times was prefixed with the O.' Recorded as Mulhall, Mullhall, Mulhill and Mulcahill, it appears in County Tipperary as Halley. These Halleys were originally Mulhalls who changed their name in the 18th century, probably for political reasons.
