Mac an Ultaigh, Mc Nulty

 

McNulty (Irish: Mac an Ultaigh)—also spelled MacNulty, McAnulty, McEnulty and Nulty amongst other variations—is an Irish surname, meaning "son of the Ulsterman".

 

Usually considered a branch of the Ulaid ruling dynasty of Mac Duinnshléibhe (MacDonlevy) who fled Ulaid to Ailech after the formers conquest in 1177 by the Normans, DNA analysis points to descent from other Ulaid families as well. After the Battle of Kinsale in 1602, some McDonlevys and McNultys migrated to the province of Connacht where their name is now common.
