English version of surname 'Ni Bheolain'?

Hi.

What is the English version of the surname 'Ni Bheolain' - as in Sharon 'Ni Bheolain? I had to remove the fadas as when I went to preview my thread - all words with a fada get removed. I thought I made a typo in a previous thread but this same thing must have happened there too.

Go raibh m maith agaibh.

According to Sloinne, it's Boland.
