Who rules at the green mound of Cruachan."
During the Tudor period they intermarried frequently with
the Geraklines of Kildare; they took part in the rebellion of
Earl Thomas, 1534; and in 1535, Brian O'Connor, Chieftain of
the clan, preserved Gerald, the 11th Earl, from death, when
he was being hunted down by Henry VIII. From this time
forward the O'Connors of Offaley became objects of the jealousy
of the Tudor monarchs ; and as their possessions lay along
the frontiers of the Pale, they were exposed to the brunt of
repeated invasions. In 1454, Bellingham seized their terri-
tories, and Offaley was changed into the King's County ; but
until the close of the IGth century they retained a shadow of
their former state, and occupied a part of their ancient patri-
mony. At length, afteratediousgtruggle with the Lieutenants
of Elizabeth, they were entirely subdued 1599 ; and O'SuUivan
informs us that three brothers, Cahir, Maurice, and John
O'Connor, were the last of the race who, in ICOO, obtained the
rank of Irish Prinzes. From one of these chieftains — it is
uncertain which — the family of O'Connor of Gartnamona is
descended; and, although some links in the pedigree are want-
ing, the descent is attested by local tradition, by inscriptioci
on graves, by the identity of Christian names, and by the
researches of eminent antiquaries. For instance, a scroll on
the i)resent mansion asserts that it was built ''by the heir of
Offaley;" an epitaph on the family tomb of Killeigh, of the
date of 1596, connects its subject " cum slemmate herouni ; ''
the names of Maurice and John, which are frequent in the
family, were also common to the ancient chieftains ; and the
well-known Charles O'Connor of Balanagarc {History of Ire-
land, p. 287) expressly identifies John O'Connor of Mount
Pleasant with the Princes of the House of Offaley. In the year

CoL. John O'Connor, of Cappaghgarane, of Gartnamona,
wa-s M.P. for the borough of Pliiiipstcwn in the Parliament
assembled in Dublin by James II., and, it is supposed, was
slain at the battle of Aughrim. He had three sons, John, a
Major in the French service; Maurice, of whom presently;
and Thomas, who d. s. p. The 2nd son,

Maurice O'Connor, gave the modern name of Mount
