Art Eanfhear, who (see p. 359) is No. 81 on the " Line of Heremon,'
and son of the Monarch Conn of the Hundred Battles, was the ancestor of
this family :

81. Art* Eanfhear (" art :" Irish,
a hear, a stone ; nolle, great, generous ;
hardness, cruelty. "Ean:" Irish,
one ; " fhear," " ar," the man ; Gr.
a ^^" /p/^g iian, or God of War) :
son of Conn of the Hundred Fights ;
a quo O'h-Airt, anglicised 0'Hart.\

This Art, who was the 112th Mon-
arch of Ireland, had three sisters —
one of whom Sarad was the wife of
Conaire Mac Mogha Laine, the
111th Monarch, by whom she had
three sons called the *' Three Cair-
bres," viz. — 1. Cairbre {alicis Eoch-

* Art', In Old High-German, the word ''hart" (which is evidently derived from
the Celtic art) means inexorable.

According to Keating's History of Ireland, the epithet Eanfhear applied to this
Art means "The Solitary;" because he was the only one of his father's sons that
survived : his two brothers Conla Euadh and Crionna, having been slain by their
uncles, as above mentioned. His grief on account of that fact was so intense, tha^
in old writings, he is often called "Art, the Melancholy."

This Art's descendants gave Kings to Connaught, Meath, and Orgiall j Kings or
Princes to Clanaboy, Tirconnell, and Tiro wen ; and with only two or three exceptional,
Monarchs to Ireland, up to the Anglo-Norman Invasion. From this Art also descended
the Kings of Scotland, from Fergus Mor Mac Earca, in the fifth century, down to the
Stuarts : See No. 81 on " The Lineal Descent of the Royal Family of England," aide,

t 0''Eart : As an illustration of the transitions which many of the ancient Irish
simames tmderwent, it may be observed that, in the early ages, the " O'Hart" family
was called Cin-Airt and iLTwm^tV-^ir?;, meaning respectively, the "kindred," and the
" people, of the Monarch Art Ean Fhear" (or Art Enaar), the ancestor of the family ;
but after the introduction of sirnames in Ireland, the family name was at one time £7a-
Airt, next Lfa-'Airt (using the aspirate before the name " Airt"), next Ua-Hairt, and
lastly Oil- Airt, anglicised O'Eairt, O'Earthiee, etc.— (See the " Harte" pedigree, for
other changes in the anglicised forms of this family name.)

Cormac Mac Art was the 115th
Monarch of Ireland ; and was called
" Ulf hada," because of his long
heard. He was the wisest, most
learned, and best of any of the
Milesian race before him, that ruled
the Kingdom. He ordained several
good laws; wrote several learned
treatises, among which his treatise
on " Kingly Government," directed
to his son Carbry Liffechar, is
extant and extraordinary. He was
very magnificent in his house-
keeping and attendants, having
always one thousand one hundred
and fifty persons in his daily
retinue constantly attending at his
Great Hall at Tara;* which was
three hundred feet long, thirty
cubits high, and fifty cubits broad,
with fourteen doors to it. His

It iirugh a famous burial place of the Irish pre-Christian kings, he should be buried
Koss-na-ili [Rosnaree] near Slane— both in the county of Meath ; and that his face
uld be towards the Fast—through respect for the Saviour of the World, whom he

izas, in Irish, occur, of which the foUowing is a translation :

" Temor (Tara), the most beautiful of hills,

Under which Erin is warlike ;
The chief city of Cormac, the son of Art,

Son of vahant Conn of the Hundred Battles.

ten choice persons should constantly
attend him and his successors —
Monarchs of Ireland, and never
to be absent from him, viz. — 1.
A nobleman to be his companion ;

2. A judge to deliver and explain
the laws of the country in the
King's presence upon all occasions ;

3. An antiquary or historiographer
to declare and preserve the genea-
logies, acts, and occurrences of
the nobility and gentry from
time to time as occasion required ;

4. A Pruid or Magician to offer

sacrifice, and presage good or ba^

one according to his good o

music, and sing pleasant sonnet
in the King's presence when then

three Stewards to govern the King'
House in all things appertainin
thereunto. This custom was ol
served by all the succeeding Mor
archs down to Brian Boromh

Ireland, and the 60th down froi

" His great house of a thousand heroes,

"With tribes it was delightful ;
A fair bright fortress of fine men ;

Three hundred feet was its measure.

" Its circuit was well arranged ;

Nor was it narrow by a faulty construction ;
Nor too small for separate apartments ;

Six times five cubits was its height.

" Grand was the host which attended there,
And their weapons were glittering with gold ;

There were three times fifty splendid apartments ;
And each apartment held fifty persons.

Three times fifty splendid goblets
To each of the numerous parties there :

Which cups were of gold or silver — all^

Who were in the house of Temor of the tribes ;

This is the exact enumeration —
Fifty above a thousand warriors.

sons of Cormac Mac Art, no issue
is recorded from any [of them], but
from Cairbre-Lifeachar ;| he had
also ten daughters, but there is no
account of any of them only two —
namely, Grace (or Grania),| and
Ailbh [alve], who were both suc-

champion and general of the Irish
Militia, Fionn, the son of Cubhall

* Idol-Gods : A vivid tradition relating the circumstance of the burial of King
)rmac Mac Art has been very beautifully versified by the late lamented Sir Samuel
)rgu8on, in his poem — " The Burial of King Cormac."

*' Crom Cruach and his sub- gods twelve,"

Said Cormac, "are but craven treene ;
The axe that made them, haft or helve.

Had worthier of our worship been ;

** But He who made the tree to grow,

And hid in earth the iron stone.
And made the man with mind to know

The axe's use, is God alone."

The Druids hear of this fearful speech, and are horrified !

" They loosed their curse against the King.

They cursed him in his flesh and bones.
And daily in their mystic ring

They turned the maledictive stones."

from his having been nursed by the
side of the LiflPey, the river on
which Dublin is built. His mother
was Eithne, daughter of Dunlong,
King of Leinster. He had three
sons — 1. Eochaidh Dubhlen; 2.
Eocho; and 3. Fiacha Srabhteine,
who was the 120th Monarch of
Ireland, and the ancestor of O'Neill,
Princes of Tyrone. Fiacha Srabh-
teine was so called, from his having
been fostered at Dunsrabhteine, in
Connaught; of which province he
was King, before his elevation to
the Monarchy.* After seventeen
years' reign, the Monarch Cairbre
Lifeachar was slain at the battle of
Gabhra [Gaura], A.D. 284, by
Simeon, the son of Ceirb, who came
from the south of Leinster to this
battle, fought by the Militia of Ire-
land, who were called the Fiana
Erionn (or Fenians), and arising
from a quarrel which happened be-

tween them ; in which the Monarch
taking part with one side again
the other, lost his life.

84. Eochaidh Dubhlen: the elde
son of Cairbre Lifeachar ; was \
called from his having been nurs(
in Dublin (" Dubhlen :"t Iris
hlach stream, referring to the da
colour, in the city of Dublin, of tl
water of the river Liffey, whi(
flows through that city). Eochaic
Dubhlen was married to Alechi
daughter of Updar, King of Alb
and by her had three sons, wl
were known as "The Three Collas,'
namely — 1. Muireadach, or Colla <
Chrioch (or Facrioch), meanii
" Colla of the Two Countries" (Ii
land and Alba) ; 2. Carioll, or Col
Uais (meaning " Colla the Noble'
who was the 121st Monarch of Ii
land ; 3. Colla Meann, or " Col
the Famous." From the Thr
Collas descended many not

* Monarchy} Under the laws of " Tanistry," the Crown in Ireland and Scotia:

was hereditary in the Family, but not exclusively in Primogeniture (See the Paj

'•' Election of Kings, Princes, and Chiefs," in the Appendix). On this subject Sir Wal
Scott, in his History of Scotland, observes: —

" The blood of the original founder of the family was held to flow in the veins of 1
successive representatives, and to perpetuate in each chief the right of supreme authori
over the descendants of his own line ; who formed his children and subjects, as he 1
came by right of birth their sovereign, ruler, and lawgiver. With the family and blc
of this chief of chiefs most of the inferior chieftains claimed a connection more or 1
remote. This supreme chiefdom or right of sovereignty, was hereditary, in so far
the person possessing it was chosen from the blood royal of the King deceased ; but
was so far elective that any of his kinsmen might be chosen by the nation to succ<
him ; and, as the office of sovereign could not be exercised by a child, the cho
generally fell upon a full-grown man, the brother or nephew of the deceased, instead
his son or grandson. This uncertainty of succession which prevailed in respect to '
crown itself, proved a constant source of rebellion and bloodshed : the postponed h<
when he arose in years, was frequently desirous to attain his father's power ; and
a murder was committed for the purpose of rendering straight an oblique line of B
cession, which such preference of an adult had thrown out of a direct course."

^Dubhlen: According to Connellan, the name "Dubhlen," is the root
Dubhlana, which has been corrupted Eblana — the name of the city of Dublin, as marl
on Ptolemy's Map of Ireland. Another ancient name for the city of Dublia i
DromcollchoiUe, which signifies '* the back of the hazel wood."

t The Three Collas: The descendants of the Three Collas were called '*TheC
Colla." The word " Clan," writes the Rev. Dr. Todd, F.T.C.D., "signifies child
or descendants. The tribe being descended from some common ancestor, the Chiefb
as the representative of that ancestor, was regarded as the Qommon father of the CI
and they as his children.
