According to Dwyer, the O'Cahans, of whom the *' Keane" family of
Beech Park is a branch, had in the county Clare two castles in the reign
of Queen Elizabeth ; one on Inis Catha (or Scattery Island), at Kilrush,
occupied by a Charles O'Cahan (living in 1584), who was called a *' corboe,"
and who filled some official position, tem;p. King Henry VIII. ; and another
at Ballykett, occupied by a James Cahane. That Charles (who, in Parrot's
Eegistry of Irish Castles of that date, is described under the name of
" Colloo," and who was slain by a follower of O'Donnell, Chief of Tir-
connell, in his raid to the county Clare, A.D. 1599,) was the son of James
O'Cahan, who also resided on Scattery Island in 1543 ; and from whom
this family is descended.

A golden bell which belonged to the Abbey on Scattery Island, and
which until lately was in the possession of Captain Fitzgerald, K.N., C.B.,
Kilkee, was transferred by that gentleman to, and was in 1881 in the

* Keane : There were also in the county Clare members of an ancient Irish family
named O'Cain (" cain :" Irish, chaste), pronounced "O'Koin," and variously an gficised
Cain, Kain, Kean, Keane, and Coyne ; but that family was quite distinct from the
"O'Cahan" family, Princes of Limavady, in the county Derry. Some of the
*' O'Cahan" family also settled in the counties of Westmeath and Mayo ; but in Clare
they were, as distinguished from the " O'Cahan" family, known as O'Cain Ton It
Gaoth.

Of the 0' Cain family was Joseph Stirling Coyne, bom at Birr in 1805. He was
son of an officer, and received his education at Dungannon School. He was intended
for the Bar, but ultimately devoted himself entirely to Hterature, chiefly dramatic.
His first piece, The Phrenologist, was produced at the Theatre Royal, Dublin, in 1835.
... He contributed to several London papers, and, with Mark Lemon and Henry
Mayhew, was one of the projectors and original contributors to Punch. Coyne was
the author of The Scenery and Antiquity of Ireland, and some works of fiction. He
died on the 18th July, 1868.

This family is believed to be a branch of the " Cahill" family of Con-
naught, which derived its name from Cathal, who is No. 102 on the
" Cahill" of Connaught pedigree ; and was in Irish known as O'Ciardha
(" ciar :" Irish, a dark-grey colour)^ anglicised O'Oearry, O'Carry, O'Carrie,
Carry, Carey, and Keary.

Thomas O'Ciardha, brother of Dermod O'Ciardha of OfFaley, called
Thomas Baintreahhachd (or Thomas *' the Widower"), was the ancestor of
" Keary," of Fore, county Meath. This Thomas lived on the Hill com-
manding a view of the famous Abbey founded at Fore by St. Fechin ; and
was killed at the burning of the Abbey by the Cromwellians, a.d. 1654.
Commencing with said Thomas, the following is the pedigree of this
family:



1. Thomas had three sons,
Thomas, Patrick, and James, the
tihree of whom sought refuge, and
found it, with Hugh O'Byrne, of
Dublin, one of the Confederate
Catholics ; Patrick and James d.
mm., but the eldest son :

Jwen who settled at Ballyvoe, about the middle of the 17th century, went there from
;he North of Ireland, at the time of the Plantation of Ulster.
