Welcome to Kelly Clans..
The Association Muintir Uí Cheallaigh was inaugurated in Roscommonon 26 May 1995 in order to share knowledge, kinship and friendship among the Ó Ceallaighs, Ó Kellys and Kellys and to hold regular clan gatherings throughout the country.
All of us in the Clan are blessed with a noble and ancient name.
Our Clan is highly influential and respected throughout the world.
In 1351 William Boy held a great feast in his castle at Galley on the shores of Lough Ree, CountyRoscommon and as a result of it was responsible for the proverbial Failte Uí Cheallaigh.
Tadh Mor Ó Cheallaigh who fought with Brian Boru at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014 and from whose last words as he lay mortally wounded came our thrilling moto – “Turris Fortis Mihi Deus” (God is my strong tower).
