CAn someone help me translate the saying on the FENNELLY crest? it states Ó fionngAlAig

There are accents above the g's too.

It's not a saying, a stór, it's just your surname in the original spelling, and in cló Gaelach, the Irish script. The dotted g's are equivalent to "gh": Ó Fionnghalaigh = Descendant of Fionnghalach, which looks like a compound of "fionn" (= blond) and "galach" (= ardent, brave).
