Mulrooney Quite numerous: Kilkenny-Midlands etc. Ir. Ó Maolruanaidh, servant of Ruanaidh; there were septs of this name in Fermanagh, Galway, Roscommon and Clare. See Moroney.
Ó Maolruanaidh Mulrooney: líon beag: Cill Chainnigh, Lár na Tíre & rl. Bhí an chlann i gceannas ar Fhear Manach roimh theacht Mhig Uidhir ach táid gann ann anois. Bhí clann eile in oir-thuaisceart na Gaillimhe agus clann eile fós sa Chlár, Luimneach & Tiobraid Árann. Deineadh Moroney díobh seo leis an leagan Gaelach Ó Murruanaigh - ní féidir a rá cérbh é Ruanaidh ach bhí Ruadhán ina ainm coitinn, ar ndóigh.
Rooney Very numerous: all areas except Munster. Ir. Ó Ruanaidh (perhaps from first name Ruadhán, red-haired one). A sept of Down, they enjoyed a literary reputation and were widespread in Leath Chuinn (the northern half). However, in W Ulster and N Connacht, it may be a version of Mulrooney, q.v. IF.
