Anglicized Names

When: Famine-Era Ireland
Where: Western Ireland, more around the areas where Gaelic might still be spoken

Would everyone have anglicized their names by this time? Would some members of the community retain something like Ogallchobhair or would it have been Gallager by now? It is all or nothing or a personal preference? 

EDIT:
You've been quite helpful. Thank you guys. (And even in the courses I've been looking into taking, they call it Irish/Gaelic)
