"We are informed that in very early times a branch of this sept
removed into the county of Tipperary, and became possessed of an
extensive estate in the barony of SUvearadh, as O'Heerin says : —

*' Slieve Aradh of the fair lands
O'Dea enjoys as his estate."

The O'Deas had several castles in the barony of Slivearadh, and also in
their original territory of Cinel Fermaic (the tribe name of the Family) —
where some remains of the castle of Dysart may be seen at the present

Amongst the most noted of this family in ancient times we find that :-
In A.D. 1106, Raghnal O'Dea, lord of Dysart, died.
A.D. 1151, Flaherty O'Dea, lord of Dysart, was slain at the battle of

He was interred ia the cathedral, where a monument of black

O'DONOGHUE. (No. 1.)

Of Cashel.
The O'Donoghue family of Cashel, co. Tipperary, was the stem whence
sprung the several branches of this family in Kerry and in Ossory, and
was descended from Cas, son of Core, who is No. 89 on the " Line of
Heber" (ante).

These O'Donoghues were Princes of the Eoghanacht of Cashel, a terri-
tory in the co. Tipperary, extending from Cashel to Clonmel :

EoghanacM Cashel is in the plain of Cian,

O'Donoghue is its lineal inheritor ;

Its name in other days was Feimhin,

Which extended to the border of the brown-nut plain.

— O'Heerev.

Hence we learn from this extract that Magh Feimhin was the ancient
name of this extensive district.
A.D. 1010,^ Flan, son of The O'Donoghue, of Cashel, successor of St. Enda,

of Ara, in the co. Tipperary, died.
A.D. 1014. Dungal O'Donoghue, King of Cashel, flourished. This prince

fought at Clontarf, and died about 1026.
A.D. 1028. Art, son of The O'Donoghue, of Cashel, erenach of Mungret in

county of Limerick, died.
A.D. 1043. Magrath O'Donoghue, Lord of Eoghanacht-Cashel, died.
A.D. 1038. Cuduligh O'Donoghue, heir to the lordship of Cashel, was slain.
A.D. 1057. Donchadh O'Donoghue, Lord of Eoghanacht-Cashel, was killed.
A.D. 1078. Connor O'Donoghue, heir of Cashel, died.

These O'Donoghues fell into decay at a very early period, and very few
of their descendants are to be met with in Tipperary, at the present day.

O'DONOGHUE. (No. 2.)

Of Ossory.

The O'Donoghues of Ossory were a branch of the O'Donoghues of Cashel ;

they were chiefs of an extensive district of Ossory, given by the people of

Leinster to the Kings of Cashel as eric (or fine) for the death of Ederscoil,
King of Munster, who was slain at the Hill of Allen, in the county of
Kildare, by Nuadha-Neacht, King of Lagenia (or Leinster). This property
which extended from Gowran, in Kilkenn}^, to Dun-Grianan, in Tipperary,
subsequently came into the possession of this family, who held it till the
end of the 12th century, when it was seized on by some Anglo-Norman
adventurers, some of whose descendants still hold it. The chief seat of
the O'Donoghue, Prince of Ossory, was at Gowran, and the name of this
district was Magh Mail or the plain of Mai, as we read : —

" The man who is elected to govern Magh Mail,
Is O'Donoghue of the fair Gabhrain."

Jerpoint Abbey was founded by one of these O'Donoghues in 1178. —

was of an intimate character may be judged from the preceding No. 1,

In a Manuscript History of Holy Cross Abbey, co. Tipperary, written
A.D. 1640, by Father Malachy Harty (now in the possession of the Most
Eex^. Dr. Croke, Archbishop of Cashel), the following entry occurs at p>

forces assisted by AmhlafF, the
Dane, and the Dal-Cais, commanded
by Brian Boroimhe and his two
elder brothers. He was afterwards
slain at the battle of Croma, by
Donchuan, son of Cineadh, and
brother of Brian. Collins of Myross
relates : — " Mahon, son of Cineadh,
brother of Brian Boroihme, and
Maolmoradh, son of Bran, son of
Cian, of the Eugenian line, and
ancestor of O'Mahony, were candi-
dates for the throne of Munster.
Mahon defeated Maolmoradh in two
different battles, and Maolmoradh
despairing to succeed by open force,
had recourse to treachery; the
Bishop of Cork and the other prin-
cipal clergy of the province inter-
posed, in consequence of which it
was agreed that both princes should
meet with a few friends at both sides
at Donamhan's house in Kerry.
Mahon came there on the appointed
day accompanied by only 12 of his
nobles. In the interim Maolmoradh
tampered with Donamhan, and
came to his house with a stronor

party of horse, on which Mahon was
made prisoner, hurried off to the
county of Cork, and there basely
murdered at a place called Leacht
Mahon near Macroom. Maolmoradh
was thereon proclaimed King of
Munster, and Donamhan for his
services received nine score town-
lands in Carbery, in the south of the
county of Cork, afterwards as it
happened by the law of gavel-kind,
divided among his descendants, as
follows : — Glean-na-Chroim, or the
parish of Fanlobish ; Clan Loghlin,
or the parish of Kilfoghmabeg ;
Gleana-Mhuilin, or the parish of
Kilmeen ; Garruidhe-O'Gearhe, or the
parish of Myross ; ClancatJiail, or the

Irish '^ dona," fr award (Pers. "doon," vile); and "amhain:" Irish, alone or only.
Thus derived, the name would imply that this Donamhan was the only one of the
family who was refractory.

112. Eaghnall (Eandal, Eanulf or
Keginald) : his son. (This name
"Reginald" bespeaks a Danish
alliance). This Eaghnall was the
ancestor (according to j\JacFirbis)of
the MacEaghnalls, or Eeynolds of
Carbery and Kiiialea, in the county
of Cork.

113. Maolruanaidh : his son.

114. Crom : his son: built the
Castle of Crom, on the river Maigue,
in the county of Limerick, in which j
he received and entertained Torlogh
O'Connor, Kingof Conacht, in 1146.
It is from this Crom that the terri-
tory of GIean-na-Chrohn,m the parish
of Fanlobush, in Carbery, has its
name ; which his descendants held
down to the year 1290, when they
were dispossessed by the Mac-
Carthys, whereupon the then
O'Donovan gave them a district in
the parish of Kilmacabea, contain-
ing seven townlands, which they
held till the time of Oliver Crom-
well ; the title Mac-an-Croim was
hereditary in this branch of the
family. According to the Annals of
Innwf alien, Crom was killed in, or
immediately before, the year 1254,
at Inis-an-lheil (now " Pheale") near
Iniskean, to the west of Bandon in
the county of Cork, by O'Mahony's
people. This Crom was ancestor of
all the septs of the O'Donovan family
in the baronies of Carbery, in the
county of Cork, and of several others
in Leinster.

115. Cathal : the eldest son of
Crom ; in his father's lifetime held
the entire of his lands in the county
of Cork ; settled in the parish of
Drimoleague, in Carbery, which
from him and his posterity was
called Clan Caihail, which is defined

by an Inc[uisition taken at Cork on
the Cth of October, 1607, as con-
taining two manors, viz., " the
manor of Castell O'Donyvane con-
taining twenty and one plough-
lands, and the manor of Eahyne."
The territory of Clancahill contained,
in all, three score and seven plough-
lands, and extended " from the sea
on the south to the river Myalagh,
and was bounded on the north with
the lands of Clandonell Eoe, and
the lands of Glean-na-Chroim, and
with the lands of Clandoghlin on
the east, and the lands of Clander-
modie and Clanteige revoe on the
west." This Cathal lived to a very
great age, and his principality in the
county of Limerick which was over-
run, and his strong Castle of Crom
were wrested from him by Maurice
Fitzgerald, second Lord OfFaly, who
was the first of that family who
came to Munster, and was made
Lord Justice of Ireland in the year
1229, in the reign of Henry III. of
England. Hence the said family
of Fitzgerald took the motto " Crom-
a-hd " (Crom Aboo), from the victory
obtained at Crom.

Cathal never had any possessions
in the original territory (see No. 89
on this genealogy), of Ui-Fidhgeinte,
or(seeNo. 91) Ui-Cairhre Aedhbha,
in the present county Limerick ;
but he had acquired a large tract of
mountain territory in Corca Luighe,
the original principality of the
O'DriscolIs, etc. ; to which newly
acquired district he transferred the
tribe-name of his family, viz.,
" Cairbre" — a name which, by a
strange whim of custom, was after-
wards applied to a vast territory
now forming four baronies in the
county of Cork. This extension of
name looks strange, as it was trans-
ferred since the year 1200, and as
the race who transferred it did not
remain the dominant family in the

district. The fact seems to have
been that when MacCarthy E,eagh
got possession of a part of this
territory in the latter end of the
thirteenth century, the Ui-Cairbre
316r were the most important tribe
within it; and that he and his
descendants applied the name to the
O'Donovan territory and to all the
minor cantreds annexed by him
from time to time.

Cathal left two sons, viz., Ivar of
Castle Ivor, now Castle Ire, in the
parish of Myross, which he erected
in 1220, and of which his descen-
dants kept possession down to the
time of Donal na-g-Croiceainn, and

116. Tadhg (or Teige) : son of
Cathal ; had two sons, Murcha ; and
Lochlin, sirnamed " Taucuste," who
obtained from his father, 36 plough-
lands between the river Roury and
Glandore harbour ; and who became
the ancestor of the Clan Loghlin

sions down to the time of Oliver

117. Murcha (Morogh or Morgan) :
his son j had a second son Aongus,
who possessed 28 ploughlands of

of which extensive ruins remain.

118. Concobhar (Conor, or Cor-
nelius) : his son.

119. Raghnal (or Randal) : his son;
had a son named Dermod, who was
ancestor of the subsequent chiefs of
the O'Donovans; and another named
Tioboid (or Toby), the ancestor of a
sept of the O'Donovans, called
Sliochd Tioboid, who possessed a tract
of land near the town of Skibbereen,
where they built the castle of Gort-
naclogh — the ruins of which still
remain, and are shown on the Ord-
nance Map on a detached portion
of the parish of Creagh.

120. Dermod: son of Raghnall ;

the O'Donovans of Meeny at a place
called, from the circumstance,
Deereen Tadhg, on the bank of the
river Hen, which separates Meeny
from Dromasta ; and his murderers
on the same night killed the inhabi-
tants of thirteen houses (the
O'Donovans of Gurteen Flur), to
the east of Meeny, only one man,
Timothy O'Donovan, escaped.

122. Donal, called Na-g-Croiceainn
(or of the hides), from his having
been wrapped up in a cow-hide when
an infant by his mother, to hide him
from the claimants to the chieftain-
ship of Clan-Cathal, who had con-
spired to murder him : son of Teige
and Ellen, his wife ; was made chief
of Clan Cahill by MacCarthy Reagh,
about 1560 ; was fostered by
O'Leary, of Carrigacurra (now called
Castle Masters), parish of Incha-
geelah, in Ibh-Leary, having, with
his mother, taken refuge there when
his father was murdered ; with the
assistance of O'Leary, Denis Meeny
O'Donovan, MacConnolly, and their
followers, he slew Diarmaid (Der-
mod) an-Bhairc (or of the bark, from
being bred at sea), at Rosscarbery,
in presence of MacCarthy Reagh,
when the straight white wand was
put in his right hand, and he was
saluted " O'Donovan.'" It was he
who built Castle Donovan in 1560,
but it is supposed he only improved
an older structure. He was married
to Ellen, dau. to O'Leary, at the
Church of Drumali, after having
had by her Dermod (slain in 1581
at Lathach na-nDamh, by Donal

Rahine Castle in 1607 ; and burned
to the ground the Protestant
Bishop's house at Ross, which had
been a short time before built by
William Lyon, Protestant Bishop of
Cork, Cloyne, and Ross. In Febru-
ary, 1592, his brother Teige at-
tempted to depose this Donal on the
score of " illegitimacy," but failed.

124. Donal (3): his son; was a
man distinguished both in peace and
war, admired by his friends and
respected by his enemies. During
the Cromwellian wars he joined the
Stuart side, with the Earl of Castle-
haven. His principal seat was at
Rahine Castle in Myross. He was
present at the taking of Mallow, and
Doneraile, in 1645, and assisted
Lord Castlehaven to take the castles
of Milton, Connagh, and Rostellan,
in the same year.

Li 1652 he was dispossessed of
large portions of his patrimony
which were partitioned among the
officers and soldiers of Cromwell in
lieu of pay ; many of these settled
on the plots assigned them, others
sold their shares to monied adven-
turers for a trifle.

The parish of Drimoleague was
divided amongst Colonel Sandford,
Major Tonson, Captain Butler, Lieu-
