Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland 1212 A.D. O'Donnell O'Devine was slain by the sons of MacLoughlin in the doorway of the abbey-church of Derry. 1213 A.D. O'Kane and the sept of Firnacreeve, came to Derry to take the house of the son of MacLoughlin. The great prior of the abbey church of Derry, who interposed to make peace between them was killed. God and St. Columbkille wrought a miracle on this occasion; for Mahon Mgaithne, the person who had gathered and mustered the army, was killed in the doorway of the church of Duvregles, in revenge of Columnbkille. 1241 A.D. Melaghlin O'Donnell was installed in the lordship of Tirconnell in the place of his father. O'Neill after having been expelled by MacLoughlin, came to O'Donnell, and O'Donnell, with his forces, went with Brian into Tyrone and they gave battle to MacLoughlin in the batle of Caimeirge, in which they slew Domhnall MacLoughlin, Lord of the Kinel-Owen and ten of his family together with all the chieftains of the Kinel-Owen. And Brian O'Neill was then installed in the lordship of the Kinel-Owen. 1260 A.D. The battle of Druim-dearg, near Dun-de-leath-ghlas [Downpatrick] was fought by Brien O'Neill and Hugh O'Connor against the English of the north of Ireland. In this battle many of the Irish chieftains were slain, viz., Brien O'Neill, the Chief of Ireland; Donnell O'Cairre; Dermot MacLoughlin; Manus O'Kane; Murtough O'Kane; Auliffe O'Gormly; Cu-Ualdh O'Hanlon and Niall O'Hanlon. Brown, in his "MacLoughlins of Clan Owen," mentions a poem written by Gilbride MacConmidge about this battle, which says of Dermot MacLoughlin: "There would have been no weakness in Leath Cuinn If MacLochlainn had not been slain" Poem on the Battle of Dun Gilla-Brighde Mac Conmhidhe "Twenty enduring years had passed From the Battle of Caim Eirge of red spears" "There would be no weakness in Leath-Chinn If Mac Lochlainn had not been slain. From this day of the death of generous Brian; 'tis grievous that Diarmaid lived not after him." O'Donovan, in commenting on this passage, said it is probable Dermot MacLoughlin would have succeeded Brian O'Neill as chief is he had lived. 1376 A.D. Thomas MacFeorais, lord of Atheny, and John MacLoughlin, Chief of his tribe, died. 1430 A.D. Donogh Oge, the son of MacLoughlin, died. 1510 A.D. MacCabe of Breifny and Anthony [Uaithne] MacLoughlin died. Calendar of State Papers 1601 A.D. A dispatch from Sir Robert Cecil to Sir George Carey "The names of all the chief places of strength in O'Dogherty's country called Ennisowen, as well castles as forts; also of those in McSwyne Fanat's country. On the south side of the country, at the coming of the lough, there is an old ruined castle called Newcastle. Here dwells Hugh boy Mack Caire, one of O'Dogherty's sept. Next unto Newcastle, three miles to landwards, is a church, called Moymill, with a haven before it. Here dwells Shane McDuff and Hugh Boy's brother. A small brook at this place. Next to that, within four miles is a small castle, called Caire MacEwlyn. Here dwells Hugh Carrogh McLaughlyn, chief of his sept. A small brook. Two miles above that is another small castle, called Garnagall. Here dwells Brian Oge McLaughlyn. A small stream. Seven miles from Garnagall is the fort of Culmore, where Phelimy Oge O'Dogherty did dwell. O'Dogherty's brother. Between Culmore and Garnagall are two small streams. Three miles above Culmore stands the Derry, where the Bishop dwelt, who is one of the sept of the Gallacars. From the Derry, three miles within the land, towrds Lough Swilly, is the castle of Ellaugh, O'Dogherty's chief house. From Ellaugh, five miles up in the country, at the side of Lough Swilly, is another castle of O'Dogherty's called Birt. Here he holds a ward of forty men. Hereruns a small stream into Lough Swilly. Next to that, in the lough, to the seaward, is an island called Ench, five miles in length, and one mile from Birt. The chief dweller here is Doultough O'Dogherty. Over against Ench in O'Dogherty's country is a castle and a church, called the Fanne, but broken down since our arrival. Here dwells the Bishop O'Galthar. From the seawards six miles is another small castle, called Boncranogh, and a river into the lough, where salmon is taken. At this place dwells Connor McGarrett O'Dogherty. From Boncranogh to seawards nine miles is another castle and a church, called Clonmony, by the seaside. Here dwells a priest called Amerson. From Clonmony to seawards five miles is another castle, called Carrickbrahey. Here dwells Phelemy Brasleigh O'Dogherty. From Carrickbrahey to landward, one mile, is a small castle, called Caslanstoke. Hereswells Phelemy Brasleigh's son. From Caslanstoke to seaward is a country of nine miles in length, called Mallane, wherein is a fort by the seaside, called Don-yrishe, held and inhabited by O'Dogherty. On the south side stands another fort called Don-owen. Here dwells Gartill McShane Boy O'Dogherty. To the southward of the same island stands a church with a wood, called Donoughmore. From Don-owen a mile northwards is a church, called Culdaughe, and stands upon the seaside. Here dwells McShane O'Dogherty. These be all the chief places round about O'Dogherty's country called Ennisowen; the midland country is most part mountainous, and hath few inhabitants. State Papers - Ireland January-March 1601 Number 127 Handwritten Notes by Sir Henry Dockwra Inishowen The people are divided into septs... The chief septs are these: Sliocht Brian (the chief thereof is commonly chosen O Dohirty) Sliocht Donnell (Whereof at this time is chief Hugh Boy) Sliocht Brasleigh (whereof is chief Neale Oge) Sliocht Shane (whereof is chief Neale Crone) Sliocht Phelim (whereof is chief Shane mac Feradaigh) Sliocht Ross (wherof is chief Feradiagh mac Cahir) (Note: the above are all branches of the O'Doughertys) The Other Septs are these Four following, who but they be hold but as tenants or ... where the others are Lords of senior noble blood as the leaders yet they are greater in power and wealth than many of the others and of them are commonly chosen counselors and officers to the Lord who holds them in great dignity. Clan Davids (whereof is chief Hugh Boy) Clan Laughlins (whereof is chief Brian Ogge) Clan Allens (whereof is chief ....Ogge) Muinter Brallohan (whereof is chief Conner Moder) A note penciled in next to the entry for Clan Laughlin states that: "This man (Brian Oge) is flead to the false O Dohirty and Owen Gorme pretends to be chief in his place." An entry on the first line of the third page states: "Of the Clan Laughlins Brian oge being chief is flead and Owen Gorme pretends to be next in his place whom for the suspicion I have of his honestie and certeine knowedge of ill caryage hencetofore, I have taken and keepe as prisoner." Another entry on the 14th line of the third page states: "I have the sonne of Phelim oge the false O Dohirty and the sonne of Brian oge McLaughlin whom I took prisoners in the country as their fathers wear flieinge away." 1602 A.D.

Derry Clergy and Parishes', by JB Leslie A succession list of the Church of Ireland diocese of Derry and it contains succession lists from the earliest times (the Church of Ireland regards itself as the true catholic church in Ireland and so it claims the Catholic clergy from the period before the Reformation as its own). McLaughlins included pre-Reformation are: 1297 Geoffrey MacLoughlin became bishop of Derry. 1319 Michael McLoughlin became bishop of Derry. 1397 Donald McGlachlyn is Canon of Derry. Nicholao Lochlynnagh was prior of the Dominican abbey in Derry 1412 Donald Macgialacind, Rector of Moville, died. 1425 Patrick Lochlonnah became Vicar of Grellach in Cloncha parish and Vicar of Culdaff. He died in 1429 at the Apostolic See. No McLaughlin Bishop is recorded before Geoffrey. The reconstructed lists for this early period are scrappy due to a lack of records. The start and end dates of holding office are not usually stated, so an earlier McLaughlin Bishop could have existed without being recorded. Calendar of Entries in the Papal Registers relating to Great Britain and Ireland 1306 6 Kal. Sept. Bordeaux (f.13) "to John [Taaffe]. Appointment to the archbishopric of Armagh void by the death of Nicolas, the election of Michael Maglachlyn, of the order of Friars Minors by the chapter not having been admitted by Benedict XI. and Denys, appointed by that pontiff, having resigned. Concurrent leters to the dean and chapter of Armagh, to the clergy of the diocese, to the suffragans and to the King." [Theiner, 174] 1310 13 Kal. Sept. Groseau (f.133) "To Michael Maclachoyim, of the order of Friars Minors, of the diocese of Armagh, the son of a nun. Dispensation to accept offices in his order and any dignity, even that of archbishop." 1327 8 Kal. Mar. Avignon (f.44) To the archbishop of Armagh. Mandate to decide the matter between the bishop and chapter of Derry and the heirs of Richard de Burgo, earl of Ulster. As appears by the petition of bishop Michael, his predecessor, Geoffrey, and the chapter had a dispute with Richard touching the right of patronage of certain churches and lands and rights belonging to the bishopric, and the earl relying on his temporal power got the better of the bishop and chapter, who suffered heavily, but verbally agreed that the earl and his heirs should hold the portion and temporal jurisdiction which they had in the city of Derry, and also the advowson in certain places, and divers tenements belonging to the church of Derry, paying a very small yearly pension to the bishop. The said earl has held these for twenty years, to the great injury of the see, and as he is now dead, bishop Michael has petitioned the pope to compel the earl's heirs to make restitution. Witnesses are to be summoned and necessary orders made and enforced." [Theiner, 237] 1412 6 Id. March St. Peter's, Rome (f.4) "To the bishop of Volterra, the archdeacon of Raphoe and the official of Derry. Mandate to collate and assign to Robert Makellais, clerk, of the diocese of Derry, who has lately had papal dispensation, as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, to be etc. as in the preceeding, the rectory, of the patronage of laymen, value not exceeding 10 marks, of Magerbili alias Norraborg in the said diocese, so long void by the death of Donald Macglalacind that etc., as ibid.

Mandate to collate and assign to Patrick Lochnonnach, priest, of the diocese of Derry, the perpetual vicarage, value not exceeding 8 marks, of Culdabtha in the said diocese, void by the death of Nemias Odufaghy, although ARhalt Odufaghy, priest, of the same diocese, who is to be removed, hassd detained possession for more than ten years; whether it be voic as stated, or by the death of Sitrag Obrolchan, or in any other way, notwithstanding that the pope has recently ordered provision to be made to him of the perpetual vicarage of Grelleach in the same diocese, value not exceeding 2 marks. He is hereby dispensed to hold both together for life. 1429 Non. Sept. Ferentino (f. 120d) "To the dean of Derry. Mandate to collate and assign to Henry Omuirgissan, clerk, of the diocese of Derry, who is of noble race, the perpetual vicarage, value not exceeding 6 mark, of Culldavcha in the same diocese, void and therefore reserved by the death at the apostolic see of Patrick Lochlannach; notwithstanding that the pope has lately ordered provision to be made to him of a canonry of Derry, with reservation of a prebend thereof and of a benefice with or without cure in the common or several gift of the bishop and the [dean and] chapter etc. of Derry, which latter mandate shall, upon his obtaining the said vicarage, be null so far as regards such benefice with cure only. 1971/72 CLOGHER RECORD, in an article entitled "The Register of Clogher" by K.W. Nicholls: "....Then the church of Clogher was ruled by Nicholas MacCathassayth, archdeacon of Clogher, who was elected in the monastery of SS. Peter and Paul at Clones on the vigil of St. Matthew the Apostle 1319 [February 24, 1320, NS] and consecreted in the monastery of Lisgoole by the venerable Fathers Michael [MacLachlainn], bishop of Derry, Thomas, bishop of Raphoe, and Patrick, bishop of Tir Briun. ...." (The Register was compiled between 1520 and 1525, and then updated sporadically until about 1575. It disappeared in the 17th Century, but numerous extracts of it survive, and Nicholls was able to reconstruct most of it.) The succession list for Grellach is: To 1425 John Ugubun To 1425 Roger Ocnambsi 1425-1429 Patrick Lochlonnah 1429 onwards John Drover George Hill "Plantation of Ulster" p. 400 "Religious Houses.- The island of the Derry was occupied in early times by buildings exclusively of an ecclesiastical character, but of these structures not a vestige now remains. The most venerated among them was the church of St. Columba, the original position and form of which are described by O'Donnell, a prince of Tirconnell, who, in his days of seclusion, wrote a life of the saint, about the year 1520, when his church, although then in ruins, was still to be seen at Derry. Referring to the locality of this ancient building, O'Donnell says:- 'Many other signs and mircales were wrought by this servant of Christ [St. Columba] in the same place, in which he himself dwelt for a long time, and which he loved above every other; and particularly that beautiful grove [Doire, 'the dense oak wood'] very near the monastery of Derry, which [the grove] he wished should be always left standing.' Next to St. Columb's church in importance was that other adjoining it, and known as Temple More, or the Cathedral Church, erected in 1164. The Annals of Ulster inform us that Temple More was 90 feet in length, and that the principal front and corner stones employed in its erection were prepared in forty days. 'These two churches, with the accompanying buildings, were situated adjacent to each other outside the present city wall, on the ground occupied by the Roman Catholic chapel and cemetery; but with the exception of the round-tower belfry, were partly destroyed by an explosion of gunpower in 1568, and finally by Docwra in 1600, for the purpose of employing their materials in the new works he was erecting. This tower survived till after the siege , being marked on the maps or plans of that time as the 'Long Tower or Temple More; its site is still indicated by a lane called the Long Tower. In the charter of Derry it is called Colum-kille's Tower.' Next came the Nunnery, which must have been built much earlier than the sixteenth century, - the date generally supposed,- as the building is mentioned at the year 1134 by the Four Masters, who record the death of Bebinn, the daughter of MacConchaille, female erenach of Derry, in that year. This building was situated on the southern side of Derry. Then there were the Dominican Abbey and Church, founded in the year 1274. 'Nicholas 'the Loughlinnagh,' or MacLoughlin, was prior in 1397. The number of friars in this Dominican ouse, previously to the suppresion, was generally 150. It had the honour of supplying two bishops to the see of Derry; and according to O'Daly and De Burgh, of sending forth five martyrs, namely, Donagh O'Luiny, prior of the order, and his brother William O'Luiny, in 1608; John O'Mannin, about 1637; John O'Laighin, prior, about 1657; and Clement O'Colgan, in 1704. A convent of the order was maintained in Derry till a late period, which in 1750 contained nine brothers.' The Dominican abbey and church were situated on the northern side of Derry, but their particular site is not now known. It is certain, however, that it was outside the present walls of the city. The Augustinian Church in Derry was situated within the walls, on the spot now occupied by the bishop's garden; and it appears originally to have been a large as well as a comparatively elegant structure of its kind. 'The erection of this church is not noticed in the Annals, from which it may be concluded that its date was not earlier than the close of the thirteenth century for some time previously to which the records of Derry are minute and accurate.' The Augustinian church was the only religous house preserved for a time after the advent of the settlers at Derry. They made it a convenience until they got the present cathedral built, and from that time until its demolition, they used to call it the 'little church.' A Franciscan Friary stood on the north side of the bog, near the island of Derry, and had three acres of land as a church-yard, which, in earlier times, probably constituted some eccesiastical gort or garden. The site is now occupied by three streets, viz., Abbey-street, Rosville-street, and William-street. The foundations of the friary were discovered some years since.
