f Fennessy : For the derivation of this sirname see the •' Fennessy" pedigree, page
88, where, because the family originally bel mged to the co. Tipperary, it was our i
mistake to include the pedigree among the " Heber Genea'ogies." But in our research
we have since found that Fiangus, who is No. 84 on the " Leydon" pedigree, was the
ancestor of the family, which is therefore of Irian or v^in ; and which was located in
the territory now known as the barony of Ov/nybeg in the County Tipperary, of whicl
territory the descendants of Aongus Fionn, son of Fergus Mor, who is No. 64 on tb
" Line of Ir," page 301, were chiefs.

i^'irceighid, another son of the said Fergus Mor, was the ancestor of th
JEocfhanacht Ara- Clinch, a. district in the County Limerick bordering on Tipperary
and Finfailig, another son of the said Fergus Mor, was the ancestor of O'Dugan ai

t Roger : This Colonel Eoger O'Moore was the " Eory O'Moore" of popular tradition
in Ireland ; to whose courage and resources was, in a great measure, due the formidable
Irish Insurrection of A.D. 1641. That Insurrection (see Section 12 of Paper: "New
Divisions of Ireland, and the New Settlers," in the Appendix) was ostensibly the cause of
the Cromwellian settlement of Ireland ; and it is remarkable that this Roger O'Moore
was a descendant of one of the Chieftains of Leix, who, a century before, had been
massacred by English troops at MuUaghmast. Of him Sir Charles Gavan Dutfy, in
his Ballad Poetry of Ireland, writes : " Then a private gentleman, with no resources
beyond bis intellect and his courage, this Eory, wh^n Ireland was weakened by
defeat and confiscation, and guarded with a jealous care constantly increasing in
strictness and severity, conceived the vast design of rescuing the country from
England, and even accomplished it; for, in three years, England did not retain a
city in Ireland but Dublin and Drogheda ; and for eight years the land was possessed

2. John (second son), who died
Nov%, 1636, and was buried in St.



and the supreme authority exercised by the Confederation created by O'Moore.
History contains no stricter instance of the influence of an individual mind."
Before the Insurrection broke out, the people, driven to desperation by the cruelties
inflicted on them by the Authorities in Ireland, had learned to know Eoger O'Moore,
and to expect in him their deliverer ; and it became a popular proverb and the burthen
of national songs, that the hope of Ireland's regeneration, at that time, was in *' God,
the Virgin, and Rory O'Moore."

The following are a few stanzas of an Ulster ballad of that period, preserved in
Duffy's " BaUad Poetry of Ireland" :

On the green hills of Ulster the white cross waves high,
And the beacon of war throws its flames to the sky ;
Kow the taunt and the threat let the coward endure,
Our hope is in God and in Rory O'Moore !

Do you ask why the beacon and banner of war
On the mountains of Ulster are seen from afar ?
'Tis the signal our rights to regain and secure,
Through God and our Lady and Rory O'Moore !



Oh ! lives there a traitor who'd shrink from the strife —
Who to add to the length of a forfeited life.
His country, his kindred, his faith would abjure ;
No ! we'll strike for our God and for Rory O'Moore.

* Anthony O'Moore joined O'Neill, earl of Tyrone ; and in a great battle defeated
the English army, a.d. 1598. In the year 1600, he and Captain Tyrrell went into
Munster and joined with MacCarthy there ; where, in a great engagement, the English
army is defeated, and their general, the earl of Ormonde, taken prisoner. Soon after
<in 1601), the Munster and Leinster confederates submit, except this O'^Moore and
O'Conor Faley, who are left in the lurch and slain ; and their estates and territories of
Lease and Offaly (or O'Phaley) seized, confiscated, and disposed to English planters,
and called by the names of the King's and Queen's Counties. — Four Jla^ters.
