* Dunkin : William Dunkin, D.D,, a friend of Swift and Delany, was probably of
the family of the Eev. Patrick Dunkin, whose metrical Latin translations of some Irish
" ranns" are acknowledged by Archbishop Usher. William Dunkin was ordained in
1735— in which year we find him repaying Swift's friendship and patronage by assist-
ing him in his poetical controversy with Bettesworth. In 1737 Swift endeavoured to
obtain for him an English living, writing of him : " He is a gentleman of much wit,
ind the best English as well as Latin poet in the Kingdom. He is a pious man, highly
ssteemed." This appeal was fruitless ; Dunkin was, however, placed by Lord Chester-
field over the Endowed School of Enniskillen. He died about 1746. A collected
odition of his poems and epistles appeared in two Vols, in 1774.

X O'Healy : Some Irish Genealogists deduce the descent of the " O'Healy" family
om Cosgrach, son of Lorcan, King of Thomond, who was grandfather of Brian
oroimhe [Born], who is No. 105 on the " O'Brien" (of Thomond) pedigree, and who
as the 175th Monarch of Ireland; others deduce it from the " O'Haly" family,
hich is an anglicised form of the Irish Ch-Atyaich (" algach" : Irish, vohle), while
'He i/y is from the Irish O'h-Eiliff/ie, a.s above shown. But (see the "Hally" and
Haly" pediarees, respectively), the two genealogies are quite distiuct, and the two
imilies'not at all descended from the same stock as *' O'Healy ;" for it is the " O'Haly"
limily that is descended from Cosgrach, son of Lorcan, who is No. 103 on the
O'Brien" (of Thomond) pedigree, and the '* O'Hally" family is descended from
Jonchuan, brother of Brian Boru, while the "O'Healy" family is descended from
ergus Mor, who is No. 64 on the "Line of Ir." Others again say that the
'Healys of Donoughmore are a branch of the "MacCarthy Mor" family, Princes of
