McArdle Family History

This famous Irish surname recorded in the spellings of MacArdle, MacCardle, MacArdell, and the short forms of McArdle, McCardle, and McCardell, is an anglicized form of the Gaelic Mac Ardghail. This derives from "mac" meaning son of, and the personal name "Ardghal", composed of the elements "ard" meaning height plus "gal", valour, hence "high valour". The clan is traditionally a branch of the Mac Mahons of Oriel, and is widespread in the Counties of Armagh, Monaghan, and parts of South Down, Louth and Fermanagh.
