The Irish form of Quigley is O'Coigligh. The h at the end is relatively new, originally the second g had a seimhiu ( I hope I spelt that right), pronounced shev-ooh, a single dot over the letter, somewhat similar to an umlaut. The name apparently meant "unkempt person".
Much the same info as you say Mark.
