Gilhooly is certainly Irish, but I've never seen this spelling before. I think the odds are on it being Irish, but keep an open mind. After all there are Hungarians called Kennedy.
The meaning of the name, Mac Giolla Ghuala, is said to be "son of servant of shoulder". Further explanation is beyond my capabilities.
