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: http://books.google.com/books?id=-fhtxH5vKV8C&pg=PA249&lpg=PA249&dq=O'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

Also have a look at these maps: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~irlkik/ihm/index.htm
notice the name "Ui Faelain" location, migration, disappearance and reappearance etc. from about 400 AD to 1200 AD
