married McGaurans.

Rodger died without issue. Felim left two sons and one daughter, and she mar-
ried a McGauran.

Patrick Dolan had three sons and two daughters : the sons and one daughter wen
to America ; and the eldest daughter married an O'Rourke.

Abigail McGauran, the wife of Tiernan Dolan, was the daughter of Petei
McGauran and Catherine McAuley. Peter McGam-an had four sons : John, Eugene,
James, and Edward ; and three daughters : Ellen, Catherine, and Abigail. John wa
married to a McGuire, Eugene to a McGauran, James to a Dolan, and Edward to
McGauran. One daughter married a Dolan, one a McGauran, and the other a:
0' Haran.

lay near, he rushed to the road and
shot the Baron dead on the spot.
Old Dolan and the Baron were just
buried when the relatives and re-
tainers of the Baron came at night,
oke into Dolan's dwelling, and
killed the brothers Cormac and
Charles. Cormac's wife exclaimed,
wrere there none of the friends of
Blind Terry there? They spared
her and her child, whose name was
Rodger, and reared him up as one
of themselves.*

About that time society in Tul-
Ughagh was in great confusion ; but
then as now occupiers were com-
pelled to pay all exactions, rents
and taxes.

It is also a tradition that young
Rodger had often declared that he
would revenge his father's death on
McGaughran ; and it is said he did
so. Having been entrusted with a
■disagreeable office of collecting from
the relatives and retainers of the
Baron their several imposts, he took
the opportunity on one of these
occasions of searching for McGaugh-
ran, and withdrew privately from
his companions to where he was
informed McGaughran usually
dwelt. As Rodger expected, he
found him there, and at once in-
formed him that he was come to
settle an old account with him.
McGaughran answered he would be
ready as soon as he had finished the
egg in his hand ; and with haste
and confidence armed himself for
the encounter, in which he was
worsted and lost his life.

When his friends missed Rodger,
some said he was surely gone in
(quest of McGaughran, and some
; one answered " a more humble
; employment would suit him better."
On his reappearance in a very

excited state, with two slceans mar-
ked with blood, one of the com-
pany exclaimed : " I see you met
McGaughran, I said you went in
search of him ; but this man said a
less manly employment would suit
you better." This insinuation
wounded Rodger, and in his anger
he said : " let him have McGaugh-
ran's skean, I will not dirty mine
with him." And he struck the
offender dead on the spot.

About this time the O'Rourkes
and McGaurans were greatly re-
duced in the social scale. It appears
that Rodger Dolan, the grandson of
Blind Terry, settled with his family
m Aughawillin and thereabouts.
For some time there is little or
nothing known about them, except
their poverty and humiliation until
the time of Colonel Gore, of New-
towngore, who, under the Crom-
wellian Settlement, became pos-
sessed of very extensive property in
the neighbourhood.

Tradition reports that Colonel
Gore resolved to compel Catholic
tenants to become Protestants, but
the Dolans of Aughawillin, Lis-
laughy,Liscrudy,and Lisroughty, re-
fused to abandon the Catholic faith,
and were therefore evicted from
Lislaughy, etc., and their farms
given to Protestants and Verts
named Whelan, who changed their
name to Heijlin, on whom their
neighbours fastened the sobriquet
of the Maivleens, or " little bags."

Patrick Dolan, who was one of
the evicted, came from Lislaughry
to Lisnatullaugh, where his family
still remain; but a branch of the
family is gone back to part of his
farm of Lislaughy. It is believed
that the Dolans of the counties of
Meath and Louth are descended

* Themselves : It is a tradition in the locality that a man named McGaughran
killed the husband of Blind Terry's daughter ; and that her son grew up under the
care of his mother's family, and was much esteemed by them.

See Dunlevy, Princes of Ulidia.

This is the Gallic form of the Irish Mac Dunsleihhe family, Princes of
Ulidia, in Ulster. The Hereditary Princef of that territory, for his
devotion to King James II., had in 1691 to quit Ireland and retire to
France, where he died, at the Archbishopric of Treves, leaving an only son
and heir — Andrew Maurice, who was born in Ireland, and d. at Coblentz
on the 19th June, 1751. From him the descent was as follows :

1. Andrew Maurice Don Levi,
b. in Ireland ; Lieutenant-Governor
of Treves; d. at Coblentz on 19th
June, 1751, leaving four children :

I. Christien-Fran^ois, of whom

II. Wolfgang-Frederic, born at
Coblentz, on 15th July, 1738,
and d. at Coblentz in 1763.

1823, leaving two children, a
son and a daughter.

* Don-Levi : Andrew Donlevy, D.D., LL.D., was born in 1694, it is thought in the
ounty Sligo. In 1710 he repaired to Paris, and studied there in the Irish College, of
w^hich he ultimately rose to be Prefect. In 1742 he published at Paris the Catechism
■)f the Christian Doctrine^ a work still in extensive circulation. He died some time
ifter 1761.

t Prince ; This Hereditary Prince of Ulidia, on the fall of King James II. , quitted
[reland for France, taking with him his only son and heir — Andrew-Maurice, then a
boy ; but left behind him his wife who remained in full possession of all his property.
Bis widow (who died in 1708) married in Ireland Count O'Donnell, by whom she left
10 children. It appears that, till his death (in 1751) her son, Andrew- Maurice Dott
Levi, above mentioned, after he had attained his majority, received the rents of thfr
landed property (situate in the counties of Down and Antrim, in Ireland), which had
belonged to his father.
