Montmorency, Medina, unheard was thy rank
By the dark-eyed Iberian and light-hearted Frank,
And your ancestors wandered, obscure and unknown.
By the smooth Guadalquiver, and sunny Garonne —
Ere Venice had wedded the sea, or enrolled
The name of a Doge in her proud " Book of Gold ;"
When her glory was all to come on like the morrow.
There were chieftains and kings of the clan of MacCaura !


Proud should thy heart beat, descendant of Heber,

Lofty thy head as the shrines of the Guebre.

Like the77i are the halls of thy forefathers shattered,

Like theirs is the wealth of thy palaces scattered.

T/ieir fire is extinguished — ?/our flag long unfurled—

But how proud were you both in the dawn of the world !

And should both fade away, oh ! what heart would not sorrow

O'er the towers of the Guebre — the name of MacCaura !

What a moment of glory to cherish and dream on,
When far o'er the sea came the ships of Heremon,
With Heber, and Ir, and the Spanish patricians,
To free Inis-Fail from the spells of magicians !
Oh ! reason had these for their quaking and pallor,
For what magic can equal the strong sword of valour ?
Better than spells are the axe and the arrow,
When wielded or flung by the hand of MacCaura.


From that hour a ]SIacCaura had reigned in his pride
O'er Desmond's green valleys and rivers so wide,
From thy waters, Lismore, to the torrents and rills
That are leaping for ••ver down Brandon's brown hills ;
The billows of Bantry, the meadowg cf B«re»
The wilds of Evaugh, and the groves of Glencare^
From the Shannon's soft shores to the banks of the Barrow-
All owned the proud sway of the princely MacCaura !

his own house by Tirlogh, son of
Diarmaid O'Brien, and by Dermod

time before this Cormac, the ancient
division of South and North Mun-

Kings of this Sept over all Munster,

Prince of Desmond, and King of
Cork, A.D. 11 44 to A.D. 1185: his
son ; was the first of the family that
submitted to the Anglo-Norman
yoke, A.D. 1172 ; was b. a.d. 1098 ;

brother of Brian Boromha [Boroo], I and m. twice, the second wife being
who was the first of the other Sept I a young Anglo-Norman lady named
that attained to the sovereignty of i Petromlla de Bleete (or Bloet),

all Munster ; w^hich they kept and
maintained always after, and also
assumed that of the whole Monarchy
of Ireland for the most part of the
time up to the Anglo-Norman
Invasion, and the submission _ of

"dame issue d'une noble famille
d'Angleterre," with whom the
family of Stack came to Ireland, and
through whose influence they ob-
tained from Dermod MacCarthy
extensive possessions in the county

Dermod to Henry the Second, King j of Kerry. Dermod was 75 years old
of Ent^land. i when he contracted this second

110. l)ermod-M6r-na-Cill-Baghain, ' marriage.

By his submission to the English King, Dermod alienated the affec-
tions of his subjects (or clansmen), and his own children even rose
af^ainst him. Cormac Liathanach, his eldest son, was proclaimed King of
Munster, by the constitutional party of his people, and collected a
numerous force for the expulsion of the strangers with whom his
degenerate father was in alliance.


! why, ere you thus to the foreigner pander'd,

Did you not bravely call round your Emerald^standard

The chiefs of your house of Lough Lene and Clan Awley,

O'Donogh, MacPatrick, O'Driscoll, MacAuley,

O'Sullivan Mor, from the towers of Dunkerron,

And O'Mahon, the chieftain of green Ardinteran ?

As the sling sends the stone, or the bent-bow the arrow,

Every chief would have come at the call of MacCaura !


Soon, soon, didst thou pay for that error, in woe—

Thy life to the Butler— thy crown to the foe—

Thy castles dismantled and strewn on the sod—

And the homes of the weak, and the abbeys of God !

No more in thy halls is the wayfarer fed—

Nor the rich mead sent round, nor the soft heather spread—

Nor the clairseach's sweet notes— now in mirth, now in sorrow-

All, all have gone by but the name of MacCaura !

MacCaura, the pride of thy house is gone by,

But its name cannot fade, and its fame cannot die —

Though the Arigideen, with its silver waves shine

Around no green forests or castles of thine —

Though the shrines that you founded no incense can hallow—

Nor hymns float in peace down the echoing Alio —

One treasure thou keepest— one hope for the morrow—

True hearts yet beat of the clan of MacCaura !

Dermod was taken prisoner and put into confinemeut so as to place
him beyond the possibility of rendering any assistance to the An»lo-
Kormans who invaded Desmond. Cormac was murdered in 1177°by
Conor and Cathal O'Donoghue for the killing of Maccraith O'Sullivan ; his
father was released, and slaughtered all those who questioned his authority
and who would not submit to him j in this murdering he was aided by
Raymond le Gros, to whom, in consideration of such services, he granted
the whole country forming the now barony of ClanMaurice in the county
of Kerry. According to the then established law of Ireland the Chief of
any tribe had it not in his power to alienate any portion of the tribe lands,
so Dermod was legally guilty of treason against the Constitution, and of
the robbery of his people. This Eaymond le Gros had a son, Maurice,
from whom his descendants have been named Fitzmaurice, the head of
which family is at present called " Marquis of Lansdowne." This Dermod
was slain in 1185 near the City of Cork, by Theobald Fitzwalter (Butler),
and the English of that place, whilst holding a conference with them :

" And thus did he pay for his error in woe,
His life to the Butler, his crown to the foe.'*.

Dermod had five sons — 1. Cormac, above mentioned, whose descendants
are given in the Carew Collections of MSS., from 1180 to 1600 ; 2. Donal,
who succeeded him ; 3. Muircheartach, who was slain by the O'Driscolls,
in 1179 j 4. Teige Eoe na-Scairte ("na-scairte :" Irish, of the hushes, and a
quo Skerrett), from whom are descended the Clan Teige Eoe ; and 5. Finin,
a future Prince of Desmond, who, in 1208, was slain by his nephews.

111. Donal Mdr na-Curra* ("na
curra" : Irish, of the planting; " cur" :
liish^ a sowing ; Heb., ^' cur" to dig\
Prince of Desmond from 1185 to
1 205 : his son. Born 1 1 38. Donal
defeated the Anglo-Normans in
Munster, and drove them out of
Limerick, in 1196; and again, in
1203, he defeated them when up-
wards of one hundred and sixty of
these free-booters were slain. He
left three sons, viz. : 1. Dermod of
Dun-Droghian, who d. in 1217,
leaving two sons, Teige and Finin,
who were killed by their uncles —
Teige in 1257, and Finin in 1235 ;

2. Cormac Fionn ; and 3. Donal Oge,
alias Donal Gothj ("goth": Irish,
straight), who was lord of Carbery,
and ancestor of MacGarthy Glas, and
MacCarthy Pdahhach. From this
Donal M6r the word "Mdr" (or
Great) was added to the sirname of
the elder branch of this family, to
distinguish them from the younger
branches spread from this ancient

112. Cormac Fionn : his son ; born
A.D. 1170. This prince founded the
Abbey of Tracton, near Kinsale.
He was earnestly solicited by the
English King Henry III. to aid him

* Donal Mor na-Curra : From whom is derived the title MacCarthy Mor. It may
be here observed that, according to Windele, the MacCarthy M6r was inaugurated at
Lisban-na-Cahir, in Kerry ; at which ceremony presided O'Sullivan Mdr and
O'Donoghoe Mdr. His Captains of war were the O'Eourkes, probably a branch of the
0'E.ourkes, princes of Brefney ; theMacEgans were his hereditary Brehons (or
Judges) : and the O'Dalys and O'Duinins were his hereditary poets and antiquaries.

of which a branch of the family re-
moved into the county of Antrim,

English government, in the person
of George Macartney, who, in 1776
was created Viscount Macartney and
Baron of Lisanoure ; the second son
of Donoch was Teige of Dun Mac

d. s. p., in 1409. This Donal's wife
Joanna, was usually styled the
" Countess of Desmond."

peace in 15 — with Leonard Grey,
Lord deputy of Ireland, into whose

in-law, James, Earl of Desmond.
He was, in 1565, created by Queen
Elizabeth, Earl of Clancare (or Glen-
care), in the " Kingdom of Kerry,"
and Viscount of Valentia in the
same county. Glencare or Clancare
is a corrupted form of " Clan
Carthy" — the English Court at that
time being ignorant of the language
or usages of the Irish. In 1568, this
Donal was looked upon by his
countrymen as " King of Munster."
The " honours" heaped on him by
the "virgin queen" expired with
him, as he left no male legitimate
issue. He left an illegitimate son,
Donal, who proclaimed himself
"The MacCarthy Mdr," but did
not succeed in his designs. His
only legitimate child, the Princess
Elana, married the celebrated Fin-
ghin MacCarthy. At A.D. 1596
the Four Masters say of this
Donal : —

" MacCarthy Mor died, namely Donal,
son of Donal, son of Cormac Ladhrach,
son of Teige ; and although he was
called MacCarthy M6r, he had been
honourably created earl (of Clancare in
Cork), before that time, by command of
the sovereign of England ; he left no male
heir after him, who would be appointed
his successor; and only one daughter
(Elana or Ellen), who became the wife
of the son of MacCarthy Riabhach,
namely Fingin or Florence, and all were
of opinion that he was heir to that Mac-
Carthy, who died, namely Donal."

Donal The MacCarthy M6r, Prince
of Desmond; m. in 1588 Fingin (or

near Cork, Florence was solemnly
