    Charles McNally (1787 – 21 November 1864) was the Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher in Ireland.Born at Ardaghy, County Monaghan, he was a priest in the Diocese of Clogher ordained on 13 June 1813. In 1815 he was appointed Prefect and Professor of the Dunboyne Establishment at Maynooth College. He was appointed the Coadjutor Bishop of the Diocese of Clogher in Ireland in September 1843 and became bishop on 20 February 1844, following the death of his predecessor, Edward McKernan. He died in office in on 21 November 1864 having served as bishop of his diocese for over twenty years. McNally was succeeded by Bishop James Donnelly.Bishop McNally's most enduring accomplishment is undoubtedly the decision to build St. Macartan's Cathedral. The bishop presided at a meeting of the Catholics of Monaghan where it was resolved that a church in the town was urgently needed. The bishop purchased an 8-acre (32,000 m2) site on the outskirts of the town from Humphrey Jones of Clontribet. On 21 June 1861, the foundation stone was solemnly laid in the presence of most of the bishops of Ireland.
