The Irish name Cooley is sometimes used as a variant of the name Cowley, who were one of the 'Tribes of Kilkenny'. Cooley can also be used instead of Cole, MuLey and MacCawley. In Counties Galway and Clare the name is derived from the Gaelic Mac Giolla Chuille sept that was anglicized as Kilcooley as well as Cooley.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
