* MacMahon : Heber MacMahon, Bishop of Clogher, and General of the Ulster
Irish, was a Catholic prelate who took a prominent part in the War 1641 — 1652, in the
interest of Charles I. Clarendon speaks of him as " much superior in parts to any man
of that partj^." He was created Bishop of Clogher in June, 1643. On the death of
Owen Roe O'Neill, in November, 1649, he was appointed at Belturbet, Commander of
the Ulster Irish, and received his commission from the Earl of Ormond, He immedi-
ately put himself at the head of 5,000 foot and 600 horse, and marched to Charlemont,
where he issued a manifesto inviting the Scots serving under Coote and ^''enables to
make common cause with the Irish ; but only a small number of them joined his
standard. On the 2l8t of June, 1650, he attacked at Scarriffhollis, two miles from
Letterkenny, the united forces of Coote and Venables ; in the early part of the engage-
ment his troops carried all before them, but they were afterwards defeated and almost
annihilated. Major- General O'Cahan, many officers, and 1,500 soldiers were killed on
the spot ; and Carte says that Colonels Henry Roe O'Neill and Felim O'Neill, Hugh
Maguire, Hugh MacMahon, and many more were slain after quarter was given. The
Bishop quitted the field with a small party of horse. His fate is related by Clarendon,
as follows : — " Next day, in his flight, he had the misfortune, near EnniskiUing, to meet
with the governor of that town, at the head of a party too strong for him, against which,
however, the Bishop defended himself with notable courage ; and, after he had received
many wounds, he was forced to become a prisoner, upon promise, first, that he should
have fair quarter ; contrary to which, Sir Charles Coote, as soon as he knew that he
(the Bishop) was a prisoner, caused him to be hanged, with all the circumstances of
contumely, reproach, and cruelty which he could devise." Cos, in his History of
Ireland, says : — " Nor is it amiss to observe the variety and vicissitude of the Irish
aflairs ; for, this very Bishop (MacMahon), and those officers whose heads were now
placed on the walls ot" Derry, were within less than a year before confederate with Sir
Charles Coote, raised the siege of that city, and were jovially merry at his table, in the-'
ijuality of friends."
