O'Kelly COA for a thousand years

Ancestrially, the O'Kelly clans came to Connaught Ireland from Ulster in the 4th century.

Their Irish name was O'Collaugh or O'Collaigh or O'Ceallaigh depending on the source.

The O'Kelly supported King Brian Boru to defeat Vikings in battle at Clontarf and drive the Danes from Ireland a thousand years ago.
