names of Tullagh Glas, Gortnidihy,
MaulcuUanane, and Carrigatotane,
in the parish of Kilmeen, barony of
Carbery, co. Cork ; and the town
and lands of Curryboy, Coolmontane

and Tnllagh, lands in Inchigeela.
Those possessions were seized on by
English adventurers and his widow
and son expelled therefrom.

124. Tadhg an Duna (2) : only son
of Tadhg an-Fhorsa (2) ; known as
" Nominal lord of Glean na-Croim ;"
was only eight years old on the
death of his father, who secured the
possessions by obtaining a " Decree
of Innocence," so that although the
lands of Togher were confiscated
after the war of 1641-52, those of
Dunmanway were then saved. But,
after the 3rd of October, 1691, in
conformity with the terms of the

Violated Treaty" of Limerick,
Tadhg's patrimony was seized by
the Williamites, so that in 1696, he
died situated as the National Poet
describes : —

122 on the

" Ni Tadhg an-Duna d'ainim !

' ' Acht Tadhg gaa dun, gau daingean ;

' ' Tadhg gan bo, gan capall,

"I m-bothainiu isiol deataigh,

' ' Tadhg gan bean gan leanbh !" etc.

Interpreted :

Not Teige of the Dunthy name !
Bat Teige without Dun, without Dain-
gean ;
Teige without cow, without horse,
In a low smoky cabin —
Teige without wife, without child ! &c.

And asrain

" Crioch a bheatha sa marbh a aonar (an

" A n-aras cumhang a luib chnuic sleibhe."

Interpreted :

The end of his life, and death together,
In a narrow dwelling in the curved ridge
of a mountain.

This exactly describes the fate of
the last lord of Glean-na-Croim.
Married Honora, dau. of Donal
O'Donovan, lord of Clancahill.
Tadhg left issue two sons ; one, it
seems was of weak intellect, and
" no better than no son at all."

125. "Captain Jacques (James)
MacCarthy Duna or Dooney: his
son ; an officer in the service of
France, of whose fate we learn that
he fought and fell at Landen, 1693.
We know not whether he had issue.


Of Balhjneadig mid Lyradane.

Tadhg an-Duna of Dunmanway Castle, who is No. 122 on the "Mac-
Carthy Glas" Stem, was the father of the founder of this Family.

Of MunsUr,

As in page 80, we give the genealogy of this family, it only remains for
us here to observe that the MacFlanchada or MacFlancha a quo MacClanc//,
Clancy, etc., were chiefs of the district called Flaith-Ui-Hallurain, situated
between Tulla, in the barony of TuUa, and Clare-on-Fergus, both in the
county Clare.

In 1192, Raghnail (or Eeginald) MacClancy was promoted to the See
of Emly, from the position of erenachship ; he died in five years after-
wards, and was interred in the Church of Beallach-Conglais. In 1483,
Conor Oge MacClancy, head professor of poetry in Thomond, died ; and
he was succeeded by his Kinsman, Hugh MacClancy. The Hugh here
mentioned was chief historiographer, poet, and professor of Brehonism (or
Law) in Thomond ; he died in 1492.

In 1575, Hugh, son of Boetius MacClancy, professor of Brehonism and
poetry, in Thomond, and " one of the most upright of Irish Brehons,"
died; and, in the year following, his kinsman, Boetius Oge, son of
Murtogh MacClancy, chief professor of Brehonism to the Dal-Cas ; and
keeper of a Biatach. or house of hospitality, died.

A.D. 1578, John, son of Donal, son of Thomas, son of Teige MacClancy,
chief professor in Brehonism, to the Earl of Thomond, died ; " and there

was not a Brehon in Ireland who had a more extensive estate or a nobler
mansion than he."

A.D. 1585, Boetius, son of Boetius MacClancy, represented the county
of Clare in Perrott's Parliament. This chieftain died at his residence at
Knock-Fionn, now Knockfinn Hill, parish of Killileagh, co. Clare, in the
month of April, 1598.

A.D. 1641, the Clan Teige O'Brien, commanded by Boetius Clancy, a
celebrated chieftain, and " a man of great property and influence in Clare,"
made a descent on the Isles of Arran, but was defeated with some loss, by
the united forces of the Lords Thomond and Clan Eicarde. This Boetius
had his residence at Knockfinn, now known as St. Catherine's, in the
barony of Corcumroe, but no vestiges of his once well-defended and
hospitable mansion now remain. The stones were long since used for
building purposes, and a large mound of earth marks its site.

According to some genealogists, the MacCoghlans derive their descent
and sirname from Coghlan, son of Flatile, of the race of Cormac Cas ; as
we are informed by O'Cleary in his dedication of the Reim- Rioghraidhe (or
succession of Irish Kings) to Torlogh MacCoghlan, Chief of his name, in
the second quarter of the seventeenth century. — See " Coghlan," which is
taken from the Linea Antigua.
