The History O'Neills Today My Family
The O'Neill/O'Neal family is from the beautiful country of Ireland. The family is a very prestigious and well respected name among the Irish. The country of Ireland is actually two different countries. It is separated into Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. My family originally hails from Northern Ireland but is spread throughout both countries. The spelling differs from Gaelic, the native language of Ireland to English. For example, O'Neill is the gaelic version while O'Neal is the English version of the name.
