Dhe family of O'Geileachair (" ceileach :" Irish, wise, prudent), anglicised
yKelleher, Kelleher, and Keller, derive their sirname from Ceileachar, son
)f Donchuan, brother of Brian Boroimhe [Boru], the 175th Monarch of Ire-
and, who is No. 105 on the " O'Brien" (Kings of Thomond) pedigree. In
-he twelfth, and even so late as the sixteenth century, the O'Kellehers were
)Ossessed of lands in Munster : but the pedigree of the family is we fear
ost. " Donogh O'Kelleher," successor of St. Kieran of Saiger, i.e. Bishop

)f Ossory, died, a.d. 1048. The late Rev. Kelleher, P.P., of Glan-

vorth, county Cork, represented the senior branch of this Sept. A
^ounger branch of the family is represented by Alderman K'iller, of Cork.

brother of the Monarch Brian Boroimhe, who is No. 105 on the " O'Brien^
Kings of Thomond" pedigree.

They were powerful chiefs in Ormond or North Tipperary, from the
11th to the close of the 16th century, and are mentioned in O'Dugan's
toprographical poem : —

" O'Kennedy of the crimson arms,
Is chief of the smooth and extensive Glean- Omra."

According to Dr. O'Donovan, the district of Glean Omra was situated
in the east of the county Clare, bordering on the Shannon, " whence," h&
says, " the O'Kennedys were driven into Ormond, in the early part of the
12th century, by the O'Briens and Clan-Coilean ;" but in this he is
mistaken, as the O'Kennedys of Glen-Omra are numbered among the
clans of Oir-Mumhan (or Ormond) by O'Dugan, who wrote in the Uth
century, and there is no authority to show that the " principality" of Glen-
Omra ever formed part of Thomond.

Frequent mention is made of the O'Kennedys by the Annalists : —
In A.D. 1110. Flan O'Kennedy, abbot of Trim, a learned poet, died.
In 1117. Two chiefs of the O'Kennedys of Ormond were slain in an

engagement with the people of Conacht.

In 1159. Giolla-Kevin O'Kennedy died whilst on a pilgrimage at Killaloe;

and two chiefs of the sept, one of whom was the son of

Giolla-Ciaran, lord of Ormond, fell at the battle of Ardee.

In 1198. O'Kennedy, abbot of Innisfallen, died.

In 1212. Donal O'Kennedy, bishop of Killaloe, died.

In 1240. Sadhbh (or Sabia), the dau. of O'Kennedy, and wife of Donogh

Cairbreach O'Brien, died. (See "O'Brien" Stem, No. 111.)

In 1254. The monastery of Nenagh was founded by O'Kennedy, chief of

In 1255. Donal O'Kennedy, archdeacon of Killaloe, who was raised to the
episcopal dignity in 1251, dying at Limerick, was interred
in the Dominican convent, in that city.
In 1371. Brian O'Kennedy, lord of Ormond, was treacherously slain by
the English ; and Edmond O'Kennedy, heir to the lordship,
In 1464. Mor, the dau. of James O'Kennedy, and the wife of Mac-
Geoghagan, of Westmeath, died. James and Donal, sons of
Bryan who accompanied this lady into the territory of
Moycashel, settled there, and were the founders of the name
of Kennedy, in \Yestmeath.
The close of the 16th century, found the O'Kennedys fast sinking into
obscurity, as appears from the fact of their not having been summoned to
attend Perrott's "Conciliation" Parliament, in 1585. A branch of this
family removed to Dublin in the early part of the 16th century, and gave
sheriffs to the city for the years, 1591, 1601, 1631, and 1688; and the
ofiace of Chief Pvemembrancer was filled by members of this branch from
1625 to 1634.

Sir Kichard Kennedy, " counsel" for Sir Phelim O'Neill, in 1652, was
in 1660, appointed Baron of the Court of Exchequer; and, having conformed


the Protestant religion, obtained large grants of confiscated land in the
ounties of Wicklow, Carlow, and Kilkenny. Alderman Walter Kennedy,
>rother to this Sir Richard, had a son, Christopher, whose son, Sir Thomas
Kennedy, became Aide-de-Camp to Richard Hamilton, Dake of Tyrconnell ;
,nd colonel of a regiment in the service of Charles III., King of Spain.
Ifcer his death, in 1718, his family returned to Dublin, where, in 1864,
his branch of the family was represented by James Marinus Kennedy of
)londalkin ; the elder line. Sir Richard's, becoming extinct in 1709.

There are several respectable families of the O'Kennedys to be met
with at the present day in the counties of Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow,
Wexford,* and Tipperary ; they are also numerous, but in narrower cir-
sumstances, in the counties of Westmeath, King's County, Qaeen's County,
Waterford, and Clare.

* Wexford : Patrick Kennedy was born in the county of Wexford early in 1801.
Although he was a Catholic, he came to Dublin as Assistant at the Protestant Training
School, Kildare-place, in 1823. After a few years he established the small lending-
library and book-shop in Auglesea-street (corner of Cope-street), where he spent the
remainder of his life. He was a man of considerable ability, and coutributed several
articles to the pages of the University Magazine. The best of these : Legends of the
Irish Celts, Tales of the Duffrey^ and Banks of the B)ro, were afterwards published
separately. In the graphic delineation of Irish rural life, as he experieaced it when a
boy in the county Wexford, he has seldom been surpassed. His works are singularly
pure, and he cramped his prospects in trade by declining to lend or deal in works that
he considered of an objectionable tendency. Mr. Kennedy was widely known and
respected by the literary world of Dublin. He died 28th March, 1873, aged about 72,
and was buried at Glasnevin.

The CLeineachain family ("leine": Irish, a linen garment), anglicised
O'Lenehan, Lenehan, and Lcnihan, descended from a younger son of the
House of MacEniry of Cappagh. They were formerly a family of note in
the counties of Tipperary and Limerick, where the name is sometimes
rendered MacLenehan and MacLanaghan ; and chiefs of a district forming

* O'Leary : Arthur O'Leary, D.D., a prominent politican and writer, was bom
in 1729, at Acres, near Lunmauway, co. Cork. He was educated at St. Malo, in

France, where he spent twenty-four years as prison chaplain " Although it

was known," says Webb, " that Dr. O'Leary was in the receipt of a Government
pension during the latter part of his life, and that this was conferred partly to restrain
him from writing against the Union (it is believed that he declined the favour), it was
never suspected until lately that he was in receipt of Government pay as early as
1784." In 1789 Dr. O'Leary left Ireland for ever, and took up his residence in London
as one of the chaplains to the Spanish embassy. There, as in Ireland, his society waf
courted by leading politicians of liberal views — by Burke and Sheridan, by Fox and
Fitzwillia'm. Towards the close of 1801, his health began to decline, and after
residing a short time in France, he returned to England, broken down in health and
spirits, and died in London on 7th January, 1802, aged 72. He was hurried in old St.
Pancras churchyard, where a monument was erected to his memory by his friend
Lord Moira.

t 0' Laoghaire : Some genealogists derive this simame from the Irish "laogh, ' a
calf, and **gair," an outcry (Gr. "gar-uo'") ; others, from the Irish "leath," a halft
and " gair,"' a lavgh ; and others, frcm "lear," the sea, and " righ," a king, meaning
"King of the sea."


the present barony of Upper Third, in the co. Waterford, where, on the
left bank of the river Suir, and where the river receives the waters of the
Clodagh, they had a strong castle, of which they were dispossessed by
the Purcells and the De Grandisons, who expelled them from their
patrimonial inheritance. They also possessed Crota Cliach and Hy-
Coonagh, a territory partly in the barony of wney and Arra, in Tipperary,
and partly in the barony of Coonagh, co. Limerick.

A worthy representative of the family is Mr. Maurice Lenihan, J. P.,
of Limerick, the Proprietor of the Limerick Eejpoiier, and son of James
Lenihan, Esq., of Waterford.

The death of Mulciaran O'Lenaghan, a religious of Tumna, county
Roscommon, who died A.D. 1249, is recorded by the Four Masters, as
follows : —

*' Mulciaran O'Lenaghan, a dignified priest of Tumna, a man who kept a house of
hospitality for the clergy and laity, died on his way to Ardcarne, to attend a sermon
there, on the Friday before Lammas ; and was interred with great honour and


The O'Liddy, or Liddy, or Leddy, as the name is sometimes anglicised,
derive their descent and sir name from Lidhda, a celebrated Munster
chieftain of the Dal-Cais, who fell at Clontarf, A.D. 1014. The exact
situation of the O'Liddy patrimony in the co. Clare cannot now be
ascertained ; but it is believed that it formed part of the present barony
of Tulla.

In 1058, Carbery O'Liddy, grandson of Lidhda, founder of the name,
and erenach of Emly, was slain ; and in 1122, Conor O'Liddy, successor of
St. Ailbe of Emly, died. In 1171, say the Four Masters, a party of the
O'Connors went on a predatory expedition into Thomond ; they plundered
Siartachain O'Liddy, and slew himself in battle.

i The tribe-name of this family was Muinter Dobharcan, i.e., " The people
(or descendants) of Dobharcan, of tlie race of Lughaidh," the third son of
Cas (No. 91 on '' O'Brien, Kings of Thomond" Stem) ; from whose grand-
son, Durcan, the O'Durkans of Thomond, derive their descent and


Chiefs of Clar-Cahir, County Tipperary,

The O'Longairgain family (" longair" : Irish, a ship's crew ; " gan," without),
anglicised O'Lonergan, Lonergan, and Lunergan, derive their sirname and
descent from Longairgan, son of Donchuan, son of Cineide, who is No. 104
on the " O'Brien, Kings of Thomond" pedigree. They were Chiefs of Clar
Cahir or the plains of Cahir, the seat of the Kings and Princes of


>l f

Tipperary ; and a junior branch of this sept, which removed into Hy-Many,
in South Conacht, in early times, became hereditary harpers to the_
O'Kellys, lords of that principality.

The castle of Ballinamanaley, in the parish of Fohenagh, barony oj
Killconnell, is said to have belonged to this family ; and, according to
tradition, Lowville, the seat of the MacDonaghs, marks the site of another
of the residences of the music-loving O'Lonergans. V^^

Frequent mention is made of this sept in the Irish Annals : —

In A.D, 1099. Annadh O'Lonergan, successor of Columb, Coarb of Creevan,
in Hy-Many, died. We are inclined to believe this
O'Lonergan was not a descendant of Donchuan ; as it
seems the family did not settle in Conacht at so early a
period, when the Dal-Cassian O'Lonergans were few and
in affluent circumstances ; it is very probable this man p
was a member of some Hy-Manian family. -

In A.D. 113L Connor O'Lonergan was killed. I

In 1147. Donal O'Lonergan, chief of Ormond, flourished. t

In 1152. Donatus O'Lonergan was appointed to the see of Cashel ; he

died, 1158.
In 1161. Tadgh O'Lonergan, bishop of Killaloe, styled "of Thomond,"

In 1206. Donal O'Lonergan, called "Donal IL," a Cistercian monk, a
native of Muscry-Tire, in Ormond, was advanced to the
see of Cashel ; being confirmed in his see by Pope
Innocent III. on 5th April, 1219. This prelate assisted
at the fourth Council of Lateran, or twelfth general
Council, held in the Basilica of the Lateran, A.D. 1215. at
which 1185 Fathers attended, and Pope Innocent III.,
(Lathario Conte), who excommunicated John (Lackland),
King of England, presided. The Annals of Ulster, and
the Four Masters, state that he died at Rome ; but other
authorities affirm that he died at Burgundy, returning to
Ireland, and that he was interred in the convent of
Citeaux, in that city.
Donal O'Lonergan III. was consecrated archbishop of Cashel, in 1216;
he resigned his sacred charge in 1223, and died nine years afterwards.

Allan O'Lonergan, a Franciscan friar, was consecrated bishop of Cloyne,
in 1274; he died in 1283.

Frederick O'Lonergan, a Dominican friar, was elected to the vacant
see of Killaloe, in 1437. He died in 1439, in the monastery of Holy
Cross, CO. Tipperary. At the dissolution of the monastic institutions,
temp. Henry VIII., Edward O'Lonergan was seized of the priory of Cahir,
and 180 acres of land in the vicinity of the establishment, valued at one
shilling per acre.

AoNGUS, a brother of Eochaidh Ball-dearg who is No. 94 pn the " O'Brien"
(Princes of Thomond) pedigree, was the ancestor of this branch of that
family. The family derives its name from Longseach (" longseach :" Irish,
a mariner)^ a descendant of that Aongus ; and were after him called
O'Loingsigh, or, anglice, O'Lynch, and Lynch. It would appear that the
" O'Lynches' Country" was that portion of territory lying around Castle-
connell, in the barony of Owny and Ara, with portion of the lands com-
prised in the county of the City of Limerick.

t 0' Mahony : Daniel O'Mahony, Lieutenant-General, a distinguished officer in the
Irish Brigade in France, brother-in-law of the Marshal Duke of Berwick, signalized
himself at the Boyne, Aughrim, and Limerick, and accompanied his regiment to the
Continent. In January, 1702, some of the Irish Brigade under O'Mahony, turning out
in their shirts in the middle of the night, defeated Prince Eugene's attempt to capture
Cremona. For their bravery and resolute refusal of the offers made by Prince Eugene to
turn them from their allegiance, Louis XIV. sent his thanks to the regiment and raised
their pay. O'Mahony was made a colonel, and was subsequently recommended to
Philip V. of Spain, by whom he was put in command of a regiment of Irish Dragoons.
He was subsequently appointed a Lieutenant -General, and created Count of Castile.
He died at Ocana in January, 1714.

X Gharbh : The epithet gharbh (" gharbh :" Irish, rough, terrible, impetuous; Lat.
"grav-is") is the root of the Latin river Garumna and the Yrench. Garonne : both of
■which are derived from tho Irish Garbh-amhuin ('* amhuin" : Irish, a river; Lat.
