This family was driven out of their territory of Glean-Geimhin and

before the English invasion.

Kate O'MuUane, of Whitecliurcli, near Cork. They were poor, and he was adopted by
his uncle Maurice, from whom he eventually inherited Derrynane. At thirteen he
was sent, with his brother Maurice, to a Catholic school near Cove (now Queenstown),
near Cork, the first seminary kept openly by a Catholic priest in Ireland since the oper-
ation of the Penal Laws. A year later the lads were sent to Liege ; but were debarred
admission to the Irish College, because Daniel was beyond the prescribed age. After
some delay they were entered at St. Omer's. There they remained from 1791 to 1792,
Daniel rising to the first place in all the classes. They were then removed to Douay,
but before many months the confusion caused by the French Kevolution rendered it
desirable for them to return home. In 1794, O'Connell was entered as a student of
Lincoln's Inn. We are told that for a time after his return from France he believed
himself a Tory ; but events soon convinced him that he was at heart a Liberal. His
first public speech was made on 13th January, 1800, at a meeting of Catholics held in
the Royal Exchange, Dublin, to protest against the Union. O'Connell married a cousin
in 1802. His biographies abound in racy anecdotes of his wonderful readiness and
ability at the Bar. The Whig Party attained to power in 1806 under Lord Granville ;
they were the supporters of Catholic Emancipation, and the Catholics were elated there-
at, but divided as to their proper course of action. John Keogh, the old and trusted
leader of the party at the time, maintained that dignified silence was their true policy ;
while O'Connell advocated a course of constant agitation, and his opinions were endorsed
by 134 votes to 110, at a conference of the party. He soon became the undisputed
leader of the Irish people. A Repeal agitation was inaugurated in 1810 by the Dublin
Corporation, then a purely Protestant body ; and at a meeting of the freemen and free-
holders in the Royal Exchange, O'Connell repeated the sentiments he had enunciated in
1800 : "Were Mr. Percival to-morrow to ofl"er me the Repeal of the Union upon the
terms of re-enacting the entire Penal Code, I declare it from my heart, and in the
presence of my God, that I would most cheerfully embrace his offer." The Centenary
of O'Connell's birth was celebrated with great enthusiasm in Dublin and elsewhere, in
1875. Some writers would gi^e O'Connell an English ancestry : See Notts and Queries,
fourth Series. — Webb.

This family derives its origin from Amruadh, who is No. 94 on the
" O'Carroll Ely" pedigree; and were in Irish called 0'Corc?-am (" corcra :""
Irish, red), which has been anglicised 0' Corcoran, Corcoran, and Coghrane,
They were formerly chiefs of Munster Corcrain, a district in the county of
Tipperary, co-extensive with the parish of Killenaule, in the barony of
Slieveardagh ; of the district of Clare Euaine, in North Tipperary ; and also
of the territory lying around Cleenish, in the barony of Clan-Awly, county
of Fermanagh. Several members of the house of Cleenish gave superiors
to the famous abbey of Daimhinis (or Devenish), on Lough Erne.
In 1001. Cahalan O'Corcoran, abbot of Devenish, died.

1040. O'Corcoran, abbot of Iniscaltra, "the most celebrated ecclesiastic

of Western Europe, both for religion and learning," died at

Lismore, and was interred in the church of St. Carthagh.

1045. Cathasagh O'Corcoran. coarb of Glen-Uissin, in Hy-Bairche, the

territory of the Mac Gormans, in the county of Carlow, died.
1095. The bishop O'Corcoran, successor of St. Brennan, of Clonfert,

died.
1055. Fiacha O'Corcoran, died.

1163. Maolisa O'Corcoran, successor of St. Comghaile, died.
1487. Brian O'Corcoran, Vicar of Cleenish, died.

The O'Corcorans sank into obscurity at the period of the Anglo-
Norman Invasion, and several branches of the sept removed into the
counties of Cork, Kilkenny, and Waterford. In Kilkenny they obtained
a settlement from the Fitz Walters (or Butlers), who were in possession of
their ancient patrimony. And a senior branch of these settlers was repre-
sented by the late Most Eev. Michael Corcoran, Bishop of Kildare and
Leighlin, in the commencement of this century; and by the Corcorans of
Enniscorthy, in co. Wexford.

The CO. Cork branch of the family settled in Carbery, and are now
(1887) represented by Jeremiah (Dan) O'Corcoran, Of Bengowe, Parish of
Murragh, who has a son, the Eev. Daniel O'Corcoran, a Catholic clergyman
in the city of Cork.

The Irish patronymic of this family is Ua-Coiteoir or 0'Coiteoir(" coiteoir:"
Irish, a cottager, a hoat-builder). In Gibson's History of Cork, this family is
stated to be of Danish origin. The name " Cotter," also siDelled " Kotter,"
is common through Denmark and Northern Europe ; and, so far as this
family was concerned, was in Ireland anciently written "MacCottyr,"
" MacCotter," and " McCottir." Sometimes the name was in Irish written
McCoithir, as well as MacCoithir. The head of the family in the Common-
wealth period was William, son of Edmond Cotter, of Coppingerstown
Castle, near Midleton, in the co. Cork. That William forfeited his Estates
under attainder, consequent on his taking part in the Irish War of 1641.
It would appear (see p. 274 of our " Irish Landed Gentry") that, for the
same cause, William Catter, of Gearigh, in the barony of Imokilly, co.
Cork, then also forfeited his Estates : which inclines us to believe that the
two Williams were identical ; as there is no other WiUiam Catter or Cotter
mentioned in the List of the '' Forfeiting Proprietors in Ireland, under the
Cromwellian Settlement."

Edmond Cotter (son of Garrett Cottir, of Innismore ; son of William
Cottyr, of Innismore, co. Cork ; son of William Cottyr, temp. King
Edward TV.), the kinsman and contemporary of the above mentioned
William Cotter, of Coppingerstown Castle, was the ancestor of this branch
of the family. That Edmond Cotter held considerable property, chiefly
Anngrove, which was his principal residence, and situate near Carrig-
twohiil ; he also had property in Innismore, where he held a great part of
the site of Queenstown (or "The Cove of Cork"), and land in other
districts. While, however, the said Edmond was possessed of considerable
wealth, it appears by his Will, that he held his Estates for the most part
subject to head rents.

The O'Cuilin ("cuil": Irish, a couch ;^

O'CuUin, O'Cullen, Cullin, and Cullen, derive their descent from Cuilin, son
of Dubh, son of Eochy M6r, son of Core, who is No. 89 on the " Line of
Heber" (ante) ; and were possessed of a tract of land in the barony of
Dunkerron, co. Kerry, which they held under the O'Sullivans. A branch
of this family formerly occupied the barony of " Kilcullen," in the co.
Kildare, and were chiefs of Coille-CuUin. Prior to the thirteenth century
this family held also the romantic country around Glencullen, in the co.
Wicklow ; in the thirteenth century the O'Cullens were expelled from this
locality by the O'Byrnes and O'Tooles. Other members of this tribe were
chiefs of Arra, in Tipperary, and of part of Conello, co. Limerick.

Patrick Cullen, an Augustinian hermit, one of the compilers of the
Registry of Clogher, was consecrated bishop of that See in 1519 ; he died
in the Spring of 1534, and was interred in his own cathedral.

0' Cullen, a religious of the convent of Athenry, in the co. Gal way,
suffered death for his faith, in 1652. His head was fixed on one of the
spikes of the gates of Athenry !

The late Cardinal Paul Cullen, Lord Archbishop of Dublin, was of this
family.

Members of this family are now located in Ulster, one of whom is Mr.
AVilliam Cullen, Teacher of the Eliza-street National School, Belfast ; and
another, Joseph Cullen of Belfast, whose pedigree is as follows :

O'DALY.

Of Munster.

This O'Dalaigh family, anglicised CDaly^ is descended from Enda (or
ilanna), son of Aongus (who is No. 91 on the " Line of Heber," ante), by
lis wife Eithne, daughter of Criomthan, son of Eanna Ceannsalach, King
jf Leinster.

These O'Dah'^s were chiefs of Muintir Bhaire (now Bere), in the south-
vest of CO. Cork ; also of Noghubhal-Ui-Dalaigh, or Noghoval-Daly,
I parish in O'Keeffe's Country, in the north-west of the same county.
This family gave birth to several eminent ecclesiastics, and to many poets
)f no mean reputation ; many of whom were hereditary bards to Mac-
Jarthy and O'Mahony.

The late Father Daly, P.P. of the united parishes of Kilbonane,
A-ghinagh, Moviddy, and Kilmurry, in Muscry, was, we believe, a native
)f Kinneigh, in Carbery ; and one of the most illustrious representatives
)f this family in this century : a family now (1887) represented by James
O'Daly, of Maghbeg, situate to the west of Bandon-Bridge.
