McNulty (Irish: Mac an Ultaigh)—also spelled MacNulty, McAnulty, McEnulty and Nulty amongst other variations—is an Irish surname, meaning "son of the Ulsterman".[1][2] 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.[3] After the Battle of Kinsale in 1602, some McDonlevys and McNultys migrated to the province of Connacht where their name is now common.[4]



The name is said to have arisen from a branch of the ruling Ulaid dynasty of Mac Duinnshléibhe (MacDonlevy) who had migrated to what is now County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland after John de Courcy's conquest of Ulaid in 1177. Here some of the MacDonlevys were nicknamed Ultagh/Ultach.[3] However, historical records such as the 1659 "Census" as well as Griffith's Valuation (1848-1864) show that concentrations of McNultys were found in parts of Ireland where the MacDonlevys had little presence, coupled with DNA analysis showing that the McNultys may actually derive from other Gaelic families that migrated from Ulaid and not just the MacDonlevy's.[3] The names Ultagh/Ultach and Mac an Ultaigh applied to only those that fled Ulaid and was not used for those that remained.[3]

Regardless of their actual origin, the first McNulty to be recorded is found in the Annals of the Four Masters under the year 1281, where an "Murtough Macan-Ulty" is listed as a distinguished fatality at the battle of Desertcreagh in present-day County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.[3]

The probable transition of the name Mac an Ultaigh from the Ultagh MacDonlevy's can be seen around 1601 where one "Morris Ultagh" is recorded as "Morris m'Nich Ultagh".[3] The surname prefix "m'Nich" appears to be an English confusion of the female prefix Nic with the male prefix Mac.[3]

Other variant spellings of McNulty include McNaulty,[5] McNalty,[5] and rarely as O'Nalty,[6] Nolty,[6] McNult,[7] McEnulty and McKnulty.[6][8] and others.

In County Clare and its adjacent County Tipperary in the southwest of the Republic of Ireland, the toponymics Connoulty and Kinoulty are encountered, and are believed to be Anglicisations of Mac an Ultaigh.[citation needed]

By 1980, there were 19,469 persons surnamed McNulty in the United States Social Security Administration data base. The surname McNulty was, then, the 2332 most frequently occurring surname in that database.[7] Some of the first McNulty immigrants to North America arrived in Philadelphia and New York City in the very early 19th century[9][10][11] and, later, more numerously, in both Philadelphia and New York City between 1840 and 1860, during which period the great Irish Potato Famine occurred.[12][13]

There are an estimated 421 persons surnamed McNulty in Australia.[14] Denis McInulty, one of the first McNulty to arrive in Australia, arrived there from Scotland on 16 May 1846 on the prisoner transport the China under a 10-year sentence of the Glasgow Justiciary Court.[15]

Dr. Sir Arthur MacNalty (sometimes, McNalty) (1880–1969) was the 8th Chief Medical Officer (United Kingdom) (1935–1941) and a historian. A ground breaking medical scientist, he teamed with the Welshman Thomas Lewis (cardiologist) in 1908 to demonstrate that tracings from then nascent electrocardiography (ECG) could be used as a tool for diagnosing Heart block.[17] This use of electrocardiography to diagnose heart block was the earliest application of ECG technology in cardiology and clinical medicine. Above is an illustration of a turn-of-the-20th-century laboratory set up of the string galvanometer for the taking of an electrocardiograph. Many of Sir Arthur's histories, including his Henry VIII: The Difficult Patient (1952) and Mary, Queen of Scots: The Daughter of Debate (1960), remain relevant for scholars. At the behest of his friend Winston Churchill, Sir Arthur also served as editor-in-chief for compilation of the monumental over 20 volume Official Medical History of the Second World War (1968).

Determined to rout the enemy, he mustered the unwounded Marines near him and directed a grenade attack against the hostile positions which was so accurate and vigorous that the North Vietnamese Army soldiers were forced to retreat, thus enabling the other Marines to evacuate the casualties and providing his Company with the opportunity to trap the enemy in an encircling movement.

McNulty (ASN: 0-18871), United States Army, for gallantry in action against the enemy while serving with Headquarters, 301st Infantry Regiment, 94th Infantry Division, in action in Germany, on 23 February 1945. Colonel McNulty, after making a personal reconnaissance of the crossing site, fearlessly led the assault elements of his command across the Saar River near Serrig, Germany. Inspiring his men by his gallant leadership, he pressed forward in the face of withering enemy fire and directed the capture of the town of Serrig and the establishment of a vital bridgehead. Colonel McNulty's utter disregard for his own safety and courageous, aggressive actions reflect great credit upon himself and the military service."[128][129] The Colonel was also awarded the Legion of Merit.[130]

Squadron commanders[edit]

Maj. Gerald M. McNulty (USAF) commanded the 61st Airlift Squadron (the Green Hornets) of the 314th Airlift Wing during the highly successful 20 October 1950 U.N. airborne invasion of Sukchon and Sunchon, North Korea. The 61st Airlift Squadron received the Distinguished Unit Citation for extraordinary heroism in action against an armed enemy of the United States for its actions during the Korean War while under Maj. McNulty’s command.[140] For award of the Distinguished Unit Citation, the collective degree of valor (combat heroism) against an armed enemy by the unit nominated must be the same as that which would warrant an individual award of the Air Force Cross. The 314th successfully accomplished the aerial invasion by having its pilots, including Maj. McNulty's Green Hornets, fly their unarmed Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar at extreme low altitude during the invasion for drop precision while exposing their craft to withering enemy ground fire. The 314th Airlift Wing dropped 2,800 paratroopers of the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment and 300 tons of war materials.

During the Korean War, U.N. forces, including U.S. armed forces, were pitted against North Korean and, later, also mainland Chinese communist forces. Prior to this airborne assault, the 1950 U.N. offensive in Korea had already resulted in the U.N. capture of the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. 30 miles north of Pyongyang, however, there still sat the heavily fortified and armed enemy positions at Sukchon and Sunchon. The unexpected U.N. precision airborne assault of Sukchon and Sunchon set the cities’ North Korean defenders back on their heels and reeling toward the Chinese border, abandoning strongly fortified positions and leaving behind loaded weapons with ammunition stockpiles beside them. One day later, on 21 October 1950, UN forces out of Pyongyang were able to link with the paratroopers of the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team to consolidate the position. The 314th Airlift Wing continued to bring in supplies thereafter to fortify the U.N. position. 4,000 more troops and 600 more tons of jeeps, trucks, howitzers and other war materials were airlifted.[141]

Maj. McNulty had earlier served as operations officer of the United States Army Air Force’s 668th Bomb Squadron, flying A-26 Invader bomber missions over the coasts of France and the Low Countries during World War II. Many of the highly experienced pilots of the 668th flew 60 or more bombing missions in the European theatre of World War II. The life expectancy of an Allied bomber crewman flying bomber missions over Europe during World War II was just 12 missions. McNulty arrived at the 668th at the rank of captain and already a seasoned aerial combatant.[142][143][144]

Missing in action[edit]

F-80Cs of the 8th Fighter-Bomber Group Korean War
  • 1st Lieutenant Richard L. McNulty (born 1929) was originally with the Rhode Island Air National Guard, but became a U.S. Air Force F-80 Pilot with the 8th Fighter-Bomber Wing, 80th Fighter-Bomber Squadron at outbreak of the Korean War. While during the Korean War flying wing for his squadron leader and major, McNulty was credited with a confirmed kill of a technically superior Russian MiG-15 and awarded the Air Medal for a single act of heroism. During the entire Korean War, fewer than 6 MiG-15s were shot down by these even then archaic and outclassed World War II era design Lockheed F-80 Shooting Stars, the first jet fighters ever used operationally by the old United States Army Air Force. McNulty later received two oak leaf clusters for two subsequent awards of the Air Medal. The primary mission of fighter-bomber squadron is to fly ground troop support against communication and supply lines at low altitude, over often difficult terrain, often, also, in midst of heavy anti-aircraft fire and while laden with high explosives and napalm. 1st Lt. McNulty failed to return from a January 1952 mission against Yangdok, North Korea. It is believed that he was shot down by Soviet MiG-15 ace Sergei Kramarenko. McNulty left a daughter Karen, and a son, Patrick, who was born while McNulty was serving in Korea and whom McNulty had never seen.[147]
B-26 Invader on a bombing run over Korea
  • John William McNulty, Airman First Class, was a tail gunner on B-26 Invader bomber with the 729th Bombardment Squadron of the 452nd Bombardment Group during the Korean War. Airman McNulty was awarded the Air Medal and the Purple Heart. On night mission on 19 July 1951 contact was lost with his aircraft between Kunu-ri and Kangye, North Korea. McNulty was listed as missing in action and presumed dead on December 31, 1953. His remains have never been recovered. John William McNulty’s name is inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu, Hawaii Memorial.[148]

On CIA Memorial Wall[edit]

The CIA Memorial Wall with 83 stars. One of these stars honors Wayne J. McNulty.
The CIA Book of Honor for 1950–2005, with entries corresponding to the Wall. The 5th entry down in the second column of the open page on the reader's left is for the 1968 death of Wayne J. McNulty.

"In Honor of those Members of the Central Intelligence Agency Who Gave Their Lives in the Service of Their Country"

103 stars representing Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agents who died in service of their country are carved into the Memorial's white Vermont marble on the north wall of the original CIA headquarters building. One of these stars honors CIA case officer or senior operative Wayne J. McNulty of the CIA's paramilitary Special Activities Division, National Clandestine Service (responsible for covert operations). In 1968, during the "Secret War" in Laos, Hmong forces discovered a cache of North Vietnamese Army (NVA) weapons during cleanup operations. W.J. McNulty was killed by NVA ground fire while flying with Air America (airline) helicopters to seize and retrieve the weapons. McNulty was the first C.I.A. operative to be killed in Laos.[180][self-published source][181]

A World War II veteran Wayne J. McNulty (1921-1968) was recruited to the CIA in early 1968 from U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets Airborne), where he had served for much of his 28 years in the U.S. Army. He retired from the service at the rank of lieutenant colonel before commencing work with the CIA and dying in the agency's service less than a year later. For years the non-official cover for McNulty’s death was that he accidentally died while a private citizen working as a contract adviser to the Thailand National Police.[182][183]

World War II and post World War II Heroes of British and Commonwealth forces[edit]


"On the 11th May, 1969 a platoon of A Company was pinned down in a heavy contact against an enemy battalion headquarters position. The platoon commander was seriously wounded ten yards in front of the enemy position and could not be extracted despite several frontal attacks. Sergeant McNulty, leading eleven men, made repeated attempts over a period of five hours to outflank the enemy and assault from the rear. Each attempt was met by heavy and accurate rocket, claymore, and machine gun fire. Despite the risk of almost certain death or wounding, Sergeant McNulty could not be deterred in his efforts to rescue the platoon commander. He finally succeeded in getting himself and a soldier with a flame thrower into a position from which effective fire could be delivered into the enemy long enough to achieve the recovery of the officer.
"In July, 1969, Sergeant McNulty was an adviser with a company of the Army of The Republic of Vietnam. The company came under sudden and heavy attack from an enemy company. The violence of the initial enemy rocket and machine gun fire caused seven casualties and created confusion amongst the friendly troops. Without regard for his own safety Sergeant McNulty advised and assisted the company commander in the organisation of his defences and the collection and evacuation of the wounded. As the enemy attack intensified Sergeant McNulty called for and calmly directed for several hours helicopter gunships and artillery, forcing the enemy to withdraw. His personal courage and professional advice was responsible for saving the South Vietnamese troops from further severe casualties and the possibility of being overrun by the enemy assault.
"In August, 1969, Sergeant McNulty's platoon was engaged in two separate major contacts with superior size enemy forces entrenched in bunkers. On both occasions Sergeant McNulty inspired all ranks with his aggressiveness and courage which by now had become expected of him in all contacts with the enemy. On 21 August 1969 while attacking an enemy battalion position, over fifteen members of his platoon including Sergeant McNulty were wounded. Sergeant McNulty covered the withdrawal of other members of his platoon, assisted in their evacuation and was finally wounded a second time during his own evacuation.
"Sergeant McNulty's outstanding conduct and personal courage has been inspirational to all members of his battalion and to South Vietnamese allies. His exemplary actions reflect great credit on himself, The Royal Australian Regiment and the Australian Army."[184]
Citation: "On the night of 10/11 December 1952, Sergeant McNulty commanded the reserve section and the assault pioneer group of the force which assaulted enemy positions on 'Flora' (CT 161208). As the force approached the objective it came under heavy enemy small arms and grenade fire. It quickly became apparent that the enemy holding the position was in far greater strength than anticipated. Sergeant McNulty's force was immediately committed in a mopping-up role. With his small party he searched for and located many enemy shelters and bunkers, inflicting casualties and serious material damage on the enemy. It was due to his energetic and courageous action during this period that many enemy posts, which had been bypassed in the initial assault, were destroyed, thus keeping friendly casualties to a minimum. As his force cleared the objective, an enemy machine-gun opened up, wounding one man. Sergeant McNulty helped to move the wounded man to safety but, in doing so, was struck by a bullet, which was fortunately deflected by his armored jacket. With complete disregard for his own safety and despite being shaken by his near miss, he personally assaulted the position with grenades and killed the crew. He then began the collection of wounded in the area, moving freely through the enemy defensive fire that was now beginning to fall. When the order for the withdrawal was given, Sergeant McNulty checked his troops through and waited until all had cleared the position before he himself withdrew from the area. Through his personal courage and disregard for his own safety he significantly contributed to maintaining the momentum of the assault. He set a splendid example to his men and infused them with a determination which contributed largely to the success of the operation."[185][186]
  • Air Crew Wireless Officer Gordon Patrick McNulty, DFC (1920–2011) Royal Canadian Air Force, World War II, Distinguished Flying Cross (United Kingdom), "for an act or acts of valour, courage or devotion to duty whilst flying in active operations against the enemy"[187][188]
  • Flight Lt. Patrick Joseph McNulty, DFC (1922-1945) Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), KIA, WWII, Distinguished Flying Cross (United Kingdom), for gallantry and devotion to duty in the execution of air operations, citation: "completed numerous operations against the enemy in the course of which he has invariably displayed the utmost fortitude, courage and devotion to duty"[189][190][191]

Died valorously in action[edit]

These airmen repeatedly went to the sky in defense of their country, family and other loved ones knowing that the life expectancy of an Allied bomber crewman flying in the European Theater during World War II was 12 missions and for a tail gunner like Peter McNulty much, much shorter.[194]

Places and their namesakes[edit]

McNulty rhyolite[edit]

Found in a single location on the earth's surface, that is McNulty Gulch near Leadville Colorado, McNulty rhyolite is a comparatively rare gem rock quality variety of rhyolite rock. McNulty rhyolite appears in the official U.S. Department of Interior, United States Geological Survey Lexicon of Geological Names of the United States.[202]
