shop of Tuam in 1610, the proscription of Catholicism in Ireland prevented his ever
king possession of his see. Through his exertions the Irish College at Louvain was
unded, in 1616. His latter years were occupied in the publication of works on St.
ugustine and his writings. He died on the 18th November, 1629, in one of the
ranciscan convents at Madrid, aged about 69 years. His remains were transferred in

e origin of Gnomore, O'Flaherty, in his Ogygia, p. 387, says : " Gnomore et Gnobeg

ief of Gnomore, and O'Heyny chief of Gnobeg. The barony of Moycullen, County

COWELL. (No. 2.)

Of Scotland,

In the "Cowell" (No. 1) pedigree we see that Fearach, a brother of
Muirceartach (or Mortogh) Mor MacEarca, the 131st Monarch of Ireland,

* O' Cuagain : This simame has, by some writers, been considered the same as
MacCagadhain ; but " MacCagadhain" and *' O'Cuagain" are two distinct families.

t MacCathmhaoill : See at No. 99 on the "Kiernan" pedigree, for another Mac
Caihmhaoill family, of the Clan Colla, and of the Cineal Feareacluighe.


was the ancestor of MacCathmlmoill. Amongst Fearach's other brothers
was Fergus M6r MacEarca, as we see in the following extract :

*' In A.D. 498, Fergus Mor MacEarca (a brother of Muirceartach Mor MacEarca .
above mentioned), in the twentieth year of the reign of his father, Muredach, son of "
(Eugenius, or) Owen, son of Niall of the Nine Hostages . . . with a complete
Army, went into Scotland to assist his grandfather Loarn, who was King of Dalriada,
and who was much oppressed by his enemies the Picts, who were in several battles
and engagements vanquished and overcome hj Fergus and his party. Whereupon, on
the king's death, which happened about the same time, the said Fergus was
unanimously elected and chosen king, as being of the Blood Roj^al, by his mother ;
and the said Fergus was the first absolute king of Scotland, of the Milesian Race : so
the succession continued in his blood and lineage ever since to this day. — Four

As the MacCathmJmwll family here mentioned is descended from i
Fearach, a brother of the said Fergus Mor LlacEarca, it is, no doubt, the '
Coioel^ (or Camphel) family mentioned in Jacob's Peerage ;* for, according
to said Peerage, we find that by letters-patent, bearing date at Kensington,
the 23rd June, 1701, Archibald, the 10th Earl of Argyle, was created
"Duke of Argyle," and amongst other titles, that of " Earl of Cambel
and Cowel." And (see No. 99 on the " Kiernan" pedigree) there was
another MacCatlimhaoiU family located in Tirowen, Ireland.

In connexion with the Scotch " Cowell" family, it is a strange fact
that the 74th Regiment, called when originally raised the "Argyll
Highlanders," wear a dark tartan, relieved by streaks of white, known as
the " Lamond." As Fearach was the ancestor of the family, and that the
Lamonds were called the Clan ic Earachar, who were afterwards known
as the "Maclamans of Lamonds," it is easy to understand that the
Lamonds were the most ancient proprietors of Coirell. As the traveller
passes through the Kyles of Bute he can look up Loch Striven at the
rounded tops of the " Cowall" mountains ; and, on his right, will see, at
the entrance of the Loch, Port Lomond. It is therefore not wonderful,
that a Eegiment, called at its first raising the "Argyll Highlanders,"
should wear the colours of a Clan dwelling of old in Airer Gaedhil,\
anglicised Argtjll and Argyle.

Peerage : "A complete English Peerage, containing a G enealogical. Biographical,

t Airer Gaedhil : According to Dr. Joyce, the most important colony from Ireland
which settled in Scotland was that which in the fifth century was led by Fergus M6r
MacEarca and his brothers, as above mentioned ; and which was known by the name
of Airer Gaedhil, meaning the territory of the Gael or Ii-ish.
