DNA (Ui Faelain), Phelan, Whalen, Phelan, (O'Fallamhain) Fallon, Fallin

Dear Jack and list ....

I am beginning to see that apparently all Fallon roots seem to go back anciently to Phelan or Faolain Waylon Whelan etc

the Whelan/Waylon thing comes from Fwaylon (Faolain)

Faelain (Fwaylon)etc seems to mean "little wolf" and
Follain or Fallain (Fallon) etc seems to mean "healthy"

Fallon seems to be a later break off group from the
original Phelan Faelain Whalen etc group. (After the Norman invasion)

Anyway ... see this:'Phelan+O'Fallon&source=bl&ots=0jfCgRqwpY&sig=9LvtuY-KtnBhVTRduURZCvz2CfA&hl=en&sa=X&ei=kkSFT_PTEqXYiQLU--H1BA&ved=0CDsQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=O'Phelan%20O'Fallon&f=false

and this:,+county+Roscommon&source=bl&ots=IGwFV0r5j6&sig=Tkr-jNNbNS9sUB7oqCJphXTCxZc&hl=en&sa=X&ei=eC-FT66tOqKMiALu4OH1BA&ved=0CFMQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=Edmund%20Fallon%20of%20Mote%2C%20county%20Roscommon&f=false

and this:'Fallon+Tipperary&source=bl&ots=6IJTcKVU8y&sig=QRseqgNCKeeMCRVKM6ey4_4qKFs&hl=en&sa=X&ei=DSqFT9ntLueeiQK_7Nj1BA&ved=0CDgQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=O'Fallon%20Tipperary&f=false

Also have a look at these maps:

notice the name "Ui Faelain" location, migration, disappearance and reappearance etc. from about 400 AD to 1200 AD
