IRISH NAMES AND SURNAMES by Rev. Patrick Wolfe, Member of the Council,
National Academy of Ireland, published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore,
1969, has the following:
O Raghell, O Reile, O Ryle, O Reale, O Raile, O’Rahill, Rahill, Reihill, Ryle, Ryall, Rall,
Rail, Riall, Real, Reel, &c; a shortened form of O Raghallaigh, q.v.; sometimes also
pronounced O Raghaill, O Raighill, O Raoghaill, O Reighill, &c.
In other books I have seen “Riall” and “Rial” used interchangeably.
