Dear All,
the name Cronley (etc.0 derives from Irish Ua Cronghaile (anglicised initially as O'Cronelly), menaing 'grandson of Crongaile'. the family was origianly a branch of the royal family of the Ui Maine tribe who inabited South galway, their kings were buried at the monastery of Clonfert. I think I am right in saying that the eponymous Crongaile lived c. AD 720, but that is from memory of something i read some time ago.
I came to thsi page hoping someone could tell me about my paternal grand-mother's family. she was born Norah kathlyn Cronley in 1901 in or near Balbriggan, County Dublin. Her father, i think, was Joseph Cronley and she ahd at least one brother, Louis. If anyone out there has any knowledge of this family i would be happy to hear from them.
