In 1498, Cormac MacCoghlan, son of Eoghan, son of the Bishop, an
official, of Clonraacnoise, died; and in 1533, Cormac MacCoghlan, lord of
Delvin (i.e. of Clan Conor), and Cahir MacCoghlan, died; in 1585, John, son
of Art, son of Cormac, Lord of Delvin, attended Perrott's Parliament ; he
died in 1590, and was succeeded by his son, John Oge. This John Oge,
who is the last chief of the sej^t mentioned by the Four Masters entered
into an alliance, offensive and defensive, with Hugh O'Neill, Prince of
Ulster, in 1598. His son Torlogh was lord of Delvin, in 1620. In 1622,
Mathew de Eenzie* obtained a grant of 1,000 acres of the forfeited estates
elseif (getClientWidth() > 430)
of the MacCoghlan, on the condition that he should not take the name or
title of O'Ptourke, O'MuUoy, Fox, MacCoghlan, or O'Doyne, "nor receive,
nor pay any Irish rent, taxes, or services, nor divide his land according to
the Irish custom of gavelkind." Sir Arthur Brundell, had also a grant of
a large portion of the MacCoghlan estates ; and several burgesses of
Banaghcr obtained districts or cantreds.
The Kev. Charles MacCoghlan, vicar-general of Leighlin, John
MacCoghlan, of Garrycastle, Terence MacCoghlan, of same place, and Teige
MacCoghlan, of Kilcolgan Castle, were the representatives of the borough
of Bana,«2;her in James's Parliament.
^ In 1790, Thomas MacCoghlan, the last independent representative of
this once illustrious family died, leaving no legitimate male representative
to inherit his name. None of his descendants were suffered by the " Ma"t
[3£aiv] to use the prefix Mac, or to claim any relationship with himself.
His great estates passed at his decease to the Eight Hon. Denis Bowes
Daly, who likewise had no children, and who shortly before his death, in
1821, sold the MacCoghlan Estates to divers persons ; the chief purchaser
being Thomas Bernard, Esq., M.P. The last MacCoghlan represented the
King's County in several Parliaments.
* De Pienzie : Mathew de Renzie died on the 29th August, 1634 ; as appears by the
following epitaph, copied from the tomb of the family, in the Church of Athlone :—
*' This monument was erected by the Right Worshipful Mathew de Renzie, Knight, who
departed this life, August 29th, 1634, aged 57 years. Born at Cullen, in Germany,
and descended from the renowned warrior, George Castriot, alias Seanderberg,
who in the Christian wars fought 52 battles, with great conquest and honour, against
the Turks. He was a great traveller and general linguist, and kept correspondence with
most nations, in many weighty affairs, and in three years gave great perfection to this
nation, by composing a Grammar, Dictionary, and Caronicles in the Irish tongue ; in
Accounts most expert, and exceeding all others in his great applause. This work was
accomplished by Mathew de Eenzie, his son, August 29th, 1635."

This Eichard Pierce MacElligott was a scholar of great eminence ;
his MSS, were full of interest to the soldier, the mathematician, and the
linguist. Some of those MSS. have since his death been deposited in
the Library of the Eoyal Irish Academy, and other places, in Dublin,
and elsewhere ; some taken by friends ; and some borrowed by others,
who, without any acknowledgment, have published their contents as
their own work. Even in fortifications and Military Art our newest
systems were to him already old. As a Tribute to the memory of
Mr. MacElligott, the following poem on him, by one of his descendants,
the elder brother of the late Sir de Lacy Evans, is here worthy of
' ' Where are those days as beauteous and sublime
As those of the original Paradise,
"When angels missioned from above came down,
To teach the Deity's infinite wisdom, love
And all His glorious attributes to man !
i Where are those days of beauty, gifted man ?
When, in the original power of genius, thou
Led'st forth thy pupil through the blooming fields
Of Art, of Science, and of Classic lore !
Then Archimides' self and Euclid taught,
From thy clear brain, and fire-touched eloquent lips.
There Homer sped his music of the soul.
Demosthenes again sent forth, through Greece
Those thunders which struck tyrants pale, of you ;
*■ Whose very echoes in our modern day
Have taught the Turkish despot wretch to bend
His recreant knee to mind, and own the power
Which from on high rebukes the tyrant, and
In blushes paints the visage of the slave !
To reach, to feel, to teach those nobler points
In morals, wisdom, in eternal truth.
In Art, in Science, or in Classic lore :
All this was thine. But higher, nobler, still,
'Twas thine to teach the youthful mind to rise
Above the sordid level of the crowd,
To build its own foundations deep and strong,
And raise the superstructure to the stars !
In 1687 Colonel MacGilhcuddy, called Denis, was Sherifi" of the county Kerry, and
got estates under an assumed name. . '
In 1688 Colonel Eoger MacElligott with his Eegiment was in Hampton Court, and
in Chester ; and with it returned to Ireland.
In 1689 Col. Roger MacElligott and his cousin Col. Cornelius MacGillicuddy, of
the Reeks (who was Governor of Kinsale), were both in Parliament as Members for
Ardfert. Two MacGillicuddys, one of whom was an Ensign, and the other a Lieutenant,
were both in Lord Kenmare's Regiment.
In 1690 Col. MacGillicuddy war Governor of Cork when it was taken by the future
Duke of Marlborough.
In 1697 Col. Roger MacElligott was released from the Tower of London, after four
years' incarceration therein. He then joined the Irish Brigade in France, as Colonel,
witii three of the MacGillicuddys.
In 1733 we find James Mason, grandfather of Robert Emmett, in Billymacelligot ;
1778, his descendant a general in Austria.
Like the DeLacys and other Irish families, the history of Ear ope at that period is
full of the exploits of the MacElligotts.

Richard Pierce MacEUigott, the subject of the foregoing Poem, having
been a poUtical prisoner in Limerick Jail, in 1798, the following is an
extract from a letter by him sent out, pasted with a piece of potato to the
bottom of a plate :
' * What shall I sufEer walking up and down this dismal place from Hght to light,
with no companion but a man, who (three times jaogged) lies dying in a comer a still
breathing corpse ; and legions of rats of all ages, which have forgotten the timidity
of thoir species, and lord it here with hereditary sway :
" Hail ! solitude, all gloomy horrors hail !
For Truth has led me to thy dismal shrine.
In her bright face all earthly glories pale ;
Thy darkest den is filled with light divine.
" What shaU I suffer ?
After this, Nothing.
" There were three happy fellows on every lamp on the bridge, as I was crossing
here ; the lantern hoops were breaking ; so I must wait till some kind friend drops off.
They nearly took up (or occupied) all the little footpath, and the toes of some of them
were touching it.
"As 1 passed, I thought what a splendid and economical plan for lamp-lighting
for, by its piercing rays, the whole earth could see into the dark hearts of a distant
peo'ple, and follow its each individual to the world's ends while he carries one grain of
pride. In the glory of such bright eternal light, who would not wish to bum ? Not

According to the Genealogical Tables compiled by Dr. O'Donovan from

ancient family is descended from Sedna the fourth son of Gaiibre

The territory of the MacEairys originally formed part of that of the
Ui-Cairbre Aedhbha, and at one time extended from the river Maig to
Abbey Feale on the borders of Kerry. It subsequently comprised that
portion of the barony of Upper Connello formerly called Corca-Muichet,
now the parish of Corcomohid, or Castletown MacEniry.
Up. to the period of the Oromwellian Settlement of Ireland, the
MacEnirys held considerable estates in the county of Limerick.
There are numerous references to members of this family in the Annals
of the Four Masters and other authentic records :
Kennith MacEneiry, King of Conallo, slain. in battle, A.D. 1029.
MacAngheiree, lord of Conaille (Connello), slain at the battle of
Fermoy, near Thurles, A.D. 1081.
MacEineiry, erected a castle in Kilmoodan (Castletown MacEniry)
William Oge McKynery of Ballyaudley, co. Limerick, an adherent of
Desmond, slain at Aherb, 7th August, 1585.
John McEniry of Castletown McEniry, co. Limerick, " chief of his
nation ;" Gerald McEniry, his cousin, and Shane McThomas McEniry, of
Kilmorie, co. Limerick, his brother-in-law, surrendered the lands possessed
by them and their ancestors for 200 years in Cork and Limerick ; receiv-
ing a re-grant thereof from the Crown, A.D. 1607.
Connor McEnnrey, Petitioner in "Court of Claims" (1666), under a
decree to his father (a transplanter) at Athlone, in 1656.
Symon MacEneiry, forfeited (1641) the lands of Castletown, &c., in
Connelloe, co. Limerick ; and in the same year John MacEneery, Donagh
MacEnery, Mortogh MacEniry, and Andrew MacEniry, Garret and Bryan
McEnery, and Thomas Mc William McEniry also forfeited estates in the
Antoine Macenery, Lt. -Colonel of Dillon's regiment, Irish Brigade, in
the service of France, in 1696.
Arthur Macenery, Brigadier-General in the French army, in 1748-61.
Dons Malachias and Juan MacEnery, Lieutenants in the regiment of
Ultonia, in the Spanish service, in 1718.
The following is the pedigree of a branch of this ancient family :
1. McEneiry of Castletown, co.
2. Thomas : his son ; born circa
1672 ; will dated 1745.
3. Philip : his son ; will dated

(which now obtain in the family). MacEnrigh, Maclndereighe, Maclnnerigh,
McEndrie, McEnery, McEnnery, and M'Kynery ; and in France, Mannery. From the
spelling and pronunciation of " Maclneirghe" we are satisfied that it is the sirname
from which Irwin, Irvine, Irving, MacJSfair, MacNeir, MacNeary, and Neary are
derived. It was therefore our mistake to derive any of these sirnames from O'Conaire

the large stature of many of the ancient Irish families are recorded. It may be mentioned
that this family was particularly remarkable in that regard ; for, not only was this
Daniel McGrath a tall, strong, and handsome man, but his wife was a tall, handsome
