HALLY.

The O'h-Ailche family (*' ailce :" Irish, manners, heJiaviour), anglicised HaUey\
and Hally, is a branch of the O'Kennedys of Ormond, descendants of
Cormac Cas. Tuatha-Fearalt, a district in the county of Tipperary (the
exact situation of which cannot now be ascertained), was the lordship of
the family, whom O'Heerin mentions in the following lines :

" Tuatha-Fearalt, of the fair- woods,
Is the lordship of O'Ailche ;
A plain of fair fortresses, and a spreading tribe ;
The land resembling Teltown of rivulets."

From the topographical description here given, it would appear to
have been that portion of Hy-Fogharty, in Tipperary, lying between
Lyttletown, in that county, and Urlingford, in Kilkenny. Tuatha-Fearalt
signifies "the country of hardy . men ;" from tiiatha, "a district," or
"country," and Feara-alt, "hardy men," or "men of sinew." Or, it

* Hagerty : Of this family was William Stuart Hagerty of London, whose ancestors
for some 200 years were settled in England. His daughter, Maria Henrietta Stuart
Hagerty, m. Thomas J. Leary, who was connected with the building trade, and with a
slate quarry in the rale of Avoca. Their only surviving son was the late Doctor William
Hagerty O'Leary, M.P. for Drogheda, who resumed the prefix 0' to his patronymic; was
bom at Dublin in 1836 ; and died in London on the loth Feb., 1880. Wm. H. O'Leary,
M.P., m. Ptosina Rogers, of Dublin, and left nine children. Of him, Sir Charles A.
Cameron, in his History of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (Dublin : Fannin
and Co., 1886), says: '* Mr. O'Leary spoke very eloquently, though somewhat floridly.
In stature he was very short ; three Irish members (of Parliament) were, in his time,
the shortest, tallest, and stoutest members in the House — namely, W. O'Leary, Mr.
O'Sullivan (co. Limerick), and Major O'Gorman."

Mr. O'Leary died while attending his Parliamentary duties in London, from con-
gestion of the lungs ; his remains were brought to Ireland, and interred in Glasnevin
Cemetery, Dublin.

dant of this family, who were hereditary physicians in Ireland.

The Ch-Algaith or O'h-Algaich ("algach:" Irish, nolle, brave), anglicised
CHaJy and Hahj, are descended from Cosgrach, son of Lorcan, who is
No. 103 on the "O'Brien" (Kings of Thomond) pedigree; and are to be
distinguished from the O^Ailches, who, although of the same descent, are
a distinct family. (See the " Healy" pedigree.)

The O'Halys are of old standing in the county of Gal way, as appears
from the Four Masters, under a.d. 1232. The representative of the
senior branch of the sept, in 1730, was Simon Haly, Esq., of Ballyhaly,

Walter (the il/o'r Mhaor Leamhna or " Great Steward of Lennox"), lord
high steward of Scotland, who is No. 115 on the "Stewart" pedigree,
was the remote ancestor of Hamilton* duke of Abercorn. This Walter,
lord steward, married Margery, the only daughter of Robert Bnice (called
*' King Robert the First"), King of Scotland ; upon whose issue by the
said Walter the crown was entailed by the Scotch Parliament, in default
of male issue of the said Robert Bruce's only son, David, King of Scotland,
who died without issue, A.D. 1370.

HEHIR.



The Oli-Aichir, O'Haithchlr, O'Hehir, Hehir, and Hare, are all one family, of
the Dal-Cas sept. They were formerly chiefs of Magh-Adhair, a district
in the County Clare, lying between Ennis and Tulla ; but, having been
driven thence by the Hy-Caisin in early times, they settled in the country

* Heffeman: Of this family was Paul Heffernan, M.B., who was horn in Dublin
in 1719, and who, as a poet, associated with Foote, Garrick, and Goldsmith. Intended
for the Catholic priesthood, he was sent to study in France, and lived there seventeen
years. On his return to Dublin he took the degree of Bachelor of Medicine (M.B.), and
in 1750 conducted the Tickler, a periodical paper in opposition to Lucas and his friends.
"He died in June 1777. In Notes and Queries, 2nd and 3rd Series, will be seen references
to him ; and a full memoir, with lists of his works, is given in Walker's Magazine for
1794.

t I/earn : Some genealogists derive *' Hefieman" from the Irish afrionn, the
or Eucharistic offering.

now forming the barony of Islands, where they became possessed of the
districts of Hy-Cormac and Hy-Flanchada, according to O'Heerin :—

" Of the race of Eoghan of Orior-Cliach,

Are the Hy-Cormac of the smooth fair plain ;

The fertile land is the lordship of O'Hehir,

The ancestor of powerful chiefs.

The head of many a powerful house

Are of the noble clan of O'flaithchir ;

They govern Hy-Flanchadha of hospitable mansions,

And are valiant and well-armed Fenians."

The district of Hy-Cormac, comprised the Callan mountains, and
extended to the town of Ennis. In A.D. 1094, Amhlaobh O'Hehir was
slain ; and, in 1099, Donogh O'Hehir, lord of Magh-Adhair, died. This
Magh-Adhair was the place of the inauguration of the O'Briens as princes
of Thomond, and the O'Hehirs always assisted at the ceremony.

In 1197, died, Gilla-Patrick O'Hehir, Abbot of Innisfallen, in the 79th
year of his age ; and, in two years afterwards, Aulifife O'Hehir, a religious
of the same establishment. By the late Dr. O'Donovan, the " O'Hares "
are set down as a tribe of the Hy-Feigeinte, of the race of Eoghan-
Mor.

We believe this family is now (1887) well represented by various
gentlemen in the County Clare,

Arms : Gyronny of eight sa. and or. on the first four acorns, and on the last as

and Eickie.

* HicJcey : Rev. William Hickey ("Martin Doyle"), well known for his efforts to
elevate the condition of the peasantry of Ireland, was eldest son of Rev. Ambrose
Hickey, rector of Murragh, co. Cork. He was born about 1787, graduated at St. John's
College, Cambridge, and subsequently took the degree of M.A. in the University of
Dublin. He was ordained a clergyman of the Established Church in 1811, and
appointed to the curacy of Dunleckny, co. Carlow. In 1820 he was inducted into the
rectory of Bannow, co. Wexford ; in 1826 was transferred to that of Kilcormick, in
1831 to Wexford, and in 1834 to Mulrankin, where he ministered the remainder of his
life. As a parochial clergyman he was esteemed alike by Catholics and Protestants.
He commenced his career as a writer in 1817, his first work being a pamphlet on the
State of the Poor in Ireland. Afterwards followed a series of letters under the pseudonym
of "Martin Doyle," under which he continued to write. He wrote numerous works ;
his latest production, published a few years before his death, was Notes and Gleanings
of the County Wexford. In all his writings he took the broadest philanthropic views,
studiously avoiding religious and political controversy. He was awarded a gold medal
by the Royal Dublin Society, in recognition of his services to Ireland, and enjoyed a
pension from the Literary Fund. He was a man of an eminently charitable and
feeling nature, and died comparatively poor, 24th October, 1875, aged 87.

1800, was born at Tallow, in the County of AVaterford. Shortly after his birth his
father, who was a builder, removed to Cork. His mother, Frances Cox, was great-
granddaughter of Sir llichard Cox, the Chancellor. Exhibiting in his youth a strong
taste for art, some friends who were attracted by his works, raised sufficient funds to
enable him to sojourn at Rome for a few years. Hogan reached Eome on Palm Sunday,
1824. His best friend was Signer Gentili, then a lawyer, and afterwards a popular
Catholic priest and preacher in Dublin. In 1838, Mr. Hogan married an Italian lady,
and in I8-48 returned to Dublin. He died on the 27th March, 1858, aged 57 years.

KELLEHEK.

The family of KelleJier or Keller, in Irish O'Ceileachair ("ceileach": Irish,
uise,])rudent), derive their sirname from Ceileachar, son of Donchuan,
brother of Brian Boroimhe [Boru], the 175th Monarch of Ireland, who is
No. 105 on the " O'Brien" (Kings of Thomond) pedigree. In the twelfth,
and even so late as the sixteenth century, the O'Kellehers were possessed
of lands in Munster ; but the pedigree of the family is, we fear, lost.
" Donogh O'Kelleher," successor of St. Kieran of Saiger, i.e. Bishop of

Ossory, died, A.D. 1048. The late Eev. Kelleher, P.P. of

Glanworth, county Cork, represented the senior branch of this Sept.
A younger branch of the family is represented by Alderman Keller, of
Cork.
