MacDONOUGH. (No. 3.)

Of Wilmont House^ Parish of Portumna, Co. Galway.

Arms : The ancient Arms of this family same as those of " MacDonough" (No. 1).

This is a Catholic branch of the ancient family of '•' MacDonough,"*
Lords of Corran and Tirerill, in the county Sligo. Of that family was
Terence MacDonogh, of Creevagh, who was M.P. for Sligo in 1689 ; and
who d. in 1718 ; he was the only Catholic Counsel who was admitted to
the Bar in Ireland, up to his death, after the violation of the Treaty of
LimQiick in 1691. Since that period we find a branch of this family
settled as country gentlemen and Justices of the Peace in the co. Galway ;
holding lands of their own, and others in lease under their ancient kins-
men, the Clan Mac William, now Marquises of Clanrickard.

* MacDonough : By reference to " MacDonough" (No. 1) pedigree, it will be seen
that '' MacDonough," Lords of Corran and Tirerill, were a younger branch of the
great house of McDermott, Princes of Moylurg, who were a younger branch of the
O'Connors, Kings of Connaught ; details of whose wealth and territories, of their
wars and alliances, are given in the Annals of the Four Masters.

* MacBowall : Patrick MacDowell, R.A., was born in Belfast, on the 12th Aug.,
1799. His father dying early, the family moved to London, and although Patrick
showed a decided taste for art, and desired to follow it, he was apprenticed to a coach-
maker. When he had served about four years, his master became bankrupt, and the
lad, then sixteen years of age, was thrown on his own resources. Accident brought
him to lodge in the house of a French sculptor, M. Chenii. He indulged once more in
his old tastes, copied from his landlord's models, and soon delighted him with a
«' Venus," for which he obtained eight guineas. Mr. MacDowell thenceforth became
eminent as an artist ; he died in London, on the 9th December, 1870, aged 71 years.

MacCaili MacCael, MacCale, MacKealy and MacHale.^

* MacHale : John, the late Catholic Archbishop of Tnam, was the first of the
family who wrote the name — " MacHale." At p. 22 of The Life and Times of the Most
liev. John MacHale, Archbishop of Tuam (Dublin : Gill and Son, 1882), the Very Rev.
Canon Ulick J. Bourke, the worthy author of that Volume, expresses the opinion that
the ^xm&mQ MacHale, as borne by Archbishop MacHale's family, is derived from Clan-
heil, which is of Welsh origin, and a quo the sirnames Hoel, Howell, etc. It is worthy
of remark, however, that some of the Archbishop's ancestors spelled their name 3fac-
Cail, while his father and grandfather spelled it MacKeal ; and that in the " Book of
Survey and Distribution," for the barony of Tyrawley and county of Mayo, the Clan
Keale are entered as proprietors, in 1641, of Cuming and Bally macramagh, in the
parish of Adergoole, where the Archbishop's immediate ancestors resided. The Cail
and Keal portion of the name so closely resembling in sound the Keale in Clan Keale,
is also worthy of notice ; as is the fact that it was from Mathew Hale, an eminent
Englishman in his day, and in no way related to the Archbishop's family, that His
Grace, the Most Rev. Doctor MacHale, assumed the Hale portion of his name, and
ceased to write it MacKeal !

While O'Donnell is poor, shall MacKenna have gold ?
Or be clothed, while a limb of O'Donnell is bare ?

While sickness and hunger thy sinews assail,
Shall MacKenna, unmoved, quaff his madder of mead ':

On the haunch of a deer shall MacKenna regale,
While a Chief of Tirconnell is fainting for food ?

No ; enter my dwelling, my feast thou shalt share ;

On my pillow of rushes thy head shall recline ;
And bold is the heart aud the hand that will dare

To harm but one hair of a ringlet of thine.

Then come to my home, 'tis the home of a friend,

In the green woods of Truagh thou art safe from thy foes :

Six sons of Mackenna thy steps shall attend,

And their six sheathless skeans shall protect thy repose."

MacKENNA. (No. 2.)

Of Dundalk.

Arms : Same as those of '' MacKenna" (No. 1).

Up to going to press with this Work, we have not met with the genealogy
of this family down to the Chief of Truagh, who, with five young sons, was
murdered by Cromwell's soldiers, after sacking the place and setting it on
fire. One of the Chiefs sons, who was then a child at fosterage up in the
mountains, escaped the massacre, and was afterwards The MacKenna
commonly called the " Major"), who in March, 1689, was killed defending
he Fort of Drumbanagher, near Glaslough, for King James II. ; and who
jvas buried in the family grave in Donogh, parish of Donogh, county of
Monaghan, and diocese of Clogher. A grandson of that " Major" was
Francis MacKenna, of Mulmurry, whose brother Charles was ordained a
Jatholic Priest on the Continent, was Chaplain to the Irish Brigade at
?ontenoy, said Mass on that Battlefield, on the day of that memorable
tttle, afterwards settled in Ireland and became Parish Priest of Donogh,

laurin, co. Longford, and by her had twenty-two children, some of whom were — 1. John
[cKenna, a general in the Spanish Service, d. 1814. (This John being an officer in the
panish Service inclines us to believe that the pedigree of this family could be found
mong the public records at Madrid, or Cadiz) ; 2. Philip, of Tobago, d. unm. in Bristol,
bout 1832 ; 3. Captain William, d. unm. in Chelsea, about 1843 ; 4. Francis, a mer-
kmnt in Drogheda, whom. Mary Markey ; 5. James, who d. 1843 ; 6. Christopher, who
. young ; and 7. a daughter Ellen, b. 1819. The aforesaid William was buried in a grave
nder a stone which has the following inscription : — " Here lyeth the Body of Phelemy
[aKenna deceased the 16th April, 1666." It is the belief of some educated persons in
lat neighbourhood, that The MacKenna who was (as above-mentioned) killed at
drumbanagher in 1689, was buried in the same grave.
