O'DONOVAN OF CLAN CATHAL.
O'DoNOVAN, Morgan William, The O'Dono-
TAN, Chieftain of the ancient Irish sept of O'DoNO-
VAN of Clan Cathal, J. P. and D.L. co. Cork, High
Sheriff 1892, B.A. Magdalen Coll. Oxford ; Capt.
3rd Batt. Eoyal Munster Fusiliers ; h. 11 Feb. 1861,

Bar. J. Yarker Barton, M.A., Chaplain of the
Forces, and has issue,

Lineage. — This sept, one of the oldest among the abori-
ginal Irish, was originally located in co. Limerick, and after
their removal from that county possessed an extensive terri-
tory, called the Cantred of Hy Donovan, situated between
the towns of Bantry, Dunmanway, Kosscarbery, and Skib-
bereen, in the present barony of Carbery, and south-west of
the CO. of Cork. Keatinge traces its descent from the oldest
branches of his Hibernian genealogy, and places their escut-
cheon as thirteenth in his armorial tables. Mr. Gough, in his
edition of Camden's Britannia, following the account given by
Dr. Smith, the Historian of the county of Cork, published 1750,
says: — "The Irish antiquarians allow but eight families of
royal extraction in Munster, of which they place four in Car-
bery, which comprehended all the south-west part of this
county (Cork)." Of these were MacCarthy, O'Mahon or Ma-
hown, O'Donovan and O'Driscol. The sept in ancient times
ruled over Hy Fidhgeinte, a territory extending along the banks
of the river Maigue, co. Limerick, on which stood the castle of
Crom. Driven from their territory by the Fitzgeralds and De
Burghos after the invasions of 1172, they settled inthe barony
of Carbery, co Cork, where the estates of the present chieftain
are situate.

Cathal, Chief of Hy Fidhgeinte, was slain by Callaghan
Cashel, King of Munster, a.d. 964, and was s. by his son,

Donovan, who ruled as Chief 977, from him the sept took
their tribe name. Seventh in descent from Donovan was

Crom O'Donovan, The O'Donovan, who was in possession of
the castle of Crom, standing on the banks of the river Maigue,
CO Limerick. According to the genealogies of MacFirbis, he
had three sons, from whom descend all the families of
O'Donovan and Donavan. These sons were,

I. Cathal, ancestor of the Chieftain.

II. Aneslis, who had four sons, 1 Donough IMor; 2 Rickard ;
3 Walter; 4 Kaghnal, ancestors of the Sloicht Aneslis

him the senior line of the sept were known as " Clan Cathal."
The sixth Chieftain in descent from him was
