McLoughlin of Leitrim


Also MacCahal Reagh, MacMurray, MacTiernan, McNeil

     A sept in Co. Leitrim closely related to the O'Rourkes, Lords
of Breffny, also assumed the suname MacLochlainn from an ancestor
named Lochlan.  This sept appears in the State Papers of 1591 as
one of the chief fighting forces of the O'Rourke chieftains who
"shared the lands of Ylaugh and Cleanlough in Co. Leitrim as their
inheritance" with the MacMorrices and the MacTiernans of Clann
Tiernan.  That they were an important local sept is evidenced by
the same document of 1591 which states "they had never bonnaught of
O'Rourke but only their shares in the preys and spoils that were
taken."
     Four of the name appear in the 1609 pardon lists of King James
I along with the O'Rourke chieftains.  Two of the name received
grants of land at about the same date in the Barony of Drumaheir in
Leitrim County.  The sept appears to have been fairly numerous:  in
the Census of 1659 the combined returns for the Baronies of
Drumheir and Roscloger record the names of 32 MacLoughlin families.

 1591-2  State Papers

 43. Names of the five baronies in O'Rourke's country, viz., in
Mynterolles, two baronies called Leitrim and Moyghell.  The
M'Grannells enjoyed these two baronies as their proper lands, until
the late O'Rourke's father supplanted them by strong ahdn, and
since that time they have lived under the spending and tyranny of
O'Rourke.  A third barony is called Carryg Allen and is occupied
by a sept of the O'Rourkes, called the O'Rourkes of Carryg Allen.
All these three baronies lie on this side the mountain Sleighoneron,
which divideth the whole country as it were into two parts, the
lands and grounds thereof are fruitful, though some bog and woods.
  The other to baronies lie beyond the said mountain of sleighoneyron, viz.,
the barony of Dromaheare, in which is the country called Brenny O'Rourke,
O'Rourke's ancient castle having fifty or sixty quarters lying about it 
called Canarvy.  This barony is most champaign ground and the best land 
in all the country. The barony of Roselougher, M'Glannough's country.
A fast country full of bogs and woods.  And the Carrhy, Owen O'Rourke's
country, called the O'Rourkes of the Carrhy, a champaign and very fruitfull.
  O'Rourke's house, called the newton, is in none of these baronies, but
standeth upon the border of his country, near to Sligo, and hath belonging 
unto it eight quarters of land in demsne called Mooyghhellys.
  The chief freeholders in the country of O'Rourke are the two MacGrannells, 
in Mynterooles, McGlannough, in the Dartry, the O'Rourkes of Carryg Allen, 
the O'Rourkes of the Carrhy, and the MacGawrains. The chief ordinary forces 
and strength of men to serve O'Rourke in his wars are, the McLoughlins, the 
McMorrices, and the Clantyernene.  These had sixteen quarters of land amoungst 
them as their inheritance, called Ylaugh, and the lands of Cleanlough.  
These had never bonnaught of O'Rourke but only their shares of 
preys and spoils that were taken."

44. Notes for O'Rourke's country.  In O'Rourke's country there
two sorts of freeholders.  As the M'Glannoughs, M'Grannells, who
were chieftains but subject to O'rourke's spending.  These pretend that they
owe no service to her Majesty, but only to O'rourke.  The others are persons 
of inferior calling and made freeholders by the Commissioners at the establishment
of the late composition, with reservations of service and tentures to her Majesty.
Most of both sorts are chargeable with the forfeiture of their freeholds by
law, for, though some may stand clear of complicity with O'Rourke, they may be
called upon to prove their first grants, and, not being able to do so, Her 
Majesty may either resume their lands or re-grant them with reservations of rent
in lieu of their former contributions to O'Rourke, as was done in the Brenny,
Annaley, and now in Monaghan.Or else Her Majesty may expel them all and plant
English there, which would be hardly taken.  All O'Rourke's places of
strength in islands, loughs, &c., should be demolished or put into the hands
of the English.  If the Earl of Kildare could be drawn to relinquish his claim
to the barony of Sligo and take in lieu of it lands in O'Rourke's country, it would tend
to the civilisation of the country, and John Newton and other suitors might by
recompensed from the same lands.

    Brefney

    The Irish Chiefs and Clans
    O'Hart "Irish Pedigrees"

The chiefs and clans of Brefney and the territories they possessed in
the twelfth century, are, according to O'Dugan, as follows:-1. O'Ruairc or
O'Rourke; 2. O'Raghallaigh or O'Reilly: these were the princes ot the territory
of Brefney.  3. MacTighearnain (tighearna: Irish, a lord or master), anglicised
MacTiernan, McKiernan, and Masterson, were chiefs of Teallach Dunchada
(signifying the tribe or teritory of Donogh), now the barony of "Tullyhunco," in
the county Cavan.  4. The MacSamhradhain (anglicised MacGauran, Magauran, and 
Magovern) were chiefs of Teallach Eachach (which signifies the tribe or
territory of Eachy), now the barony of "Tullaghagh," county Cavan.  This sirname
is by some rendered "Somers," and "Summers," from the Irish word, "Samhradh",
which signifies summer.  5. MacConanamha, chief of Clan Cionnaith or Clan Kenny,
now known as the Muintir Kenny mountains and adjoining districts near Lough Allen,
in the parish of Innismagrath, county Leitrim.  6. MacCagadhain or MacCogan,
chief of Clan Fearmaighe, a district south of Dartry, and in the present barony
of Dromahaire, county Leitrim.  O'Brien states that the MacEgans were chiefs of
Clan Fearsmuighe in Brefney: hence MacCagadhain and MacEgan may, probably be
the same clan.  7. MacDarchaidh or MacDarcy,chief of Cineal Luachain, a district 
in the barony of Mohill, county Leitrim, from which the townland of Laheen may be
derived.  8. MacFlannchadha (rendered MacClancy), chief of Dartraidhe or Dartry, 
an ancient territory co-extensive with the present barony of Ross-Clogher in Leitrim.
9. O'Finn and O'Carroll, chiefs of Calraighe or Calry, a district adjoining 
Dartry in the present barony of Dromahaire, and comprehending, as the name implies, 
an adjoining portion of Sligo, the parish of "Calry" in that county.  10. MacMaoiliosa
or Mallison, chief of Magh Breacraighe, a district on the borders of Leitrim and
Longford.  11. MacFionnbhair or Finvar,chief of Muintir Gearadhain (O'Gearon
or O'Gredan), a district in the southern part of Leitrim. 12. MacRaghnaill or
MacRannell(anglicised Reynolds), who were chiefs of Muintir Eoluis, a territory
which comprised almost the whole of the present baronies of Leitrim, Mohill, and
Carrygallen, in the county Leitrim, with a portion of the north of Longford.  This family,
like the O'Farrells, princes of Annaly or Longford, were of the race of Ir or
Clan-na-Rory; and one of their descendants, the celebrated wit and poet, George Nugent
Reynolds Esq., of Leterfian, in Leitrim, is stated to have been the author of the
beautiful song called "The Exile of Erin," though its composition was claimed by Thomas
Campbell, author of "The Pleasures of Hope."  13. O'Maoilmiadhaigh or Mulvey, chief of 
magh Neise or Nisi, a district which lay along the Shannon in the west of Leitrim, near 
Carrick-on-Shannon.  The following clans in the counties of Cavan and Leitrim, not given
by O'Dugan, are collected from other sources:  14. MacBradaigh or MacBrady, was
a very ancient and important family in Cavan; they were, according to MacGeoghagan, a
branch of the O'Carrolls, chiefs of Calry.  15. MacGobhain, MacGowan, or Gowan,
(gobha: Irish, a Smith), a name which has been anglicised "Smith," etc., were of the
race of Ir; and were  remarkable for their great strength and bravery.  Thus Smith,
Smyth, Smeeth, and Smythe, may claim their descent from the Milesian MacGowan,
originally a powerful clan in Ulidia. 16. MacGiolladluibh, MacGilduff, or Gillduff,
chiefs of Teallach Gairbheith, now the barony of Tullygarvey, in the county of Cavan.
17. MacTaichligh or MacTilly, chief of a district in the parish of Drung,
in the barony of Tullygarvey.  18. MacCaba or MacCabe, a pwerful clan originally
from Monaghan, but for many centuries setled in Cavan.  19. O'Sheridan, an
ancient clan in the county Cavan.  Richard Brinsley Sheridan, one of the most eminent
men of his age, as an orator, dramatist, and poet, was of this clan.  20. O'Corry
was a clan located about Cootehill.  21. O'Clery or Clarke was a branch of the
O'Clerys of Connaught and Donegal, and of the same stock as the authors of the Annals
of the Four Masters.  22. O'Daly and O'Mulligan, were hereditary bards to the
O'Reillys. 23. Fitzpatrick, a clan originally of the Fitzpatricks of Ossory.
24. Fitzsimon, a clan long located in the county Cavan, are of Anglo-Norman
descent, who came originally from the English Pale.  25. O'Farrelly, a numerous
clan in the county Cavan.  26. Several other clans in various pa4rts of Cavan, as 
O'Murray, MacDonnell, O'Conaghy or Conaty, O'Connell or Connell, MacManus, O'Lynch, 
MacGilligan, O'Fay, MacGafney, MacHugh, O'Dolan, O'Drom, etc.  27. And several
clans in the county Leitrim, not mentioned by O'Dugan, as MacGloin of Rossinver; 
MacFergus, who were hereditary erenachs of the churches of Rossinver, and whose 
name was been anglicised "Ferguson; O'Cuirnin or Curran, celebrated bards
and historians; MacKenny or Keaney, MacCartan, O'Meehan, etc.

    "We thus have an eyesight into the relations between the owner of 
Manor Hamilton and his neighbours of the Irish clans in this year of 1641, 
during the October of which the Irish Rebellion and Massacre broke out.
The Diary already referred to begins with mention of the setting on fire and
burning of the "Iron Works called the Garrison," Co. Fermanagh, by the 
MacLaughlins and MacMurrays of the County Leitrim, and that seven or eight
score of the sufferers, most of them English, wounded and robbed, fled to
Lady Hamilton for relief."

     "This day by our Colonell's command a gallowes was erected upon the
top ofan hill neare the castle, and having about 24 prisoners in the castle,
he caused eight of them to be hanged up which had been at the burning of
Ballyshannon, in the county of Donegall, and at the burning of the iron works
in the county of Fermanagh.

    The gallows was kept busy, for we find that a number of men were tried
by and executed under martial law since the beginning of this Rebellion, whose

  N.F. McLoughlin, of Enniskillen, Fermanagh, supplies the following
information on the McLoughlins of Leitrim:  He begins by referring to 
an annal entry of 1603, which lists a Torlogh MacLoughlin, the son
of 'MacLoughlin'.

  1603 FM

The people of Rury O'Donnell repaired to Tirconnell with all their
property, cattle, and various effects, in the first month of spring. But
Rury himself, with his gathering and muster of Irish and English, with
Captain Guest, went (before his people had removed from the west) to
revenge and get satisfaction of O'Rourke (Brian Oge), for the insult and
dishonour he had some time before offered him (as he had in
contemplation some time before); so that they plundered and ravaged
Breifny, both its crops and corn, and all the cattle they could seize
upon, for the greater part of them had been driven into the wilds and
recesses of the territory. A few persons were slain between them, among
whom were Owen, the son of Ferdorcha O'Gallagher, and Turlough, the son
of Mac Loughlin, who fell by each other on that occasion. A party of the
English were left in garrison at Dromahaire, for the purpose of
plundering the country  around them. O'Rourke was thenceforward obliged to 
remain with a few troops in the woods or precipitous valleys, or on the 
islands in the lakes of his territory. 

  He refers to Torlogh as 'the MacLoughlin', which is incorrect.  It is his
father being referred to as 'the MacLoughlin', not Torlogh.

  Then he goes on:

"Turlough's son Conn, the erstwhile tanist, but precluded from assuming the
title 'the MacLoughlin' as it became illegal to use such titles around that 
time, had  a son called Turlogh.  This Turlough was living in 1641 and is
mentioned in the Down Survey, but he had died efore 1659. As he held land 
outside the baronies of Drumhaire-Rossclogher, he would presumja ly have 
shown up in the 1659 Census. But no MacLochlainn was found outside this area
of Leitrim at that time.  It is known however that he had three sons, Conn
Edmond and Teige.  These too are mentioned in 1641 in the Down Survey.  
However their land lay outside the Baronies of DRumhaire-Rossclogher.  In
1659 a major concentration of MacLochlainns was to be found in this area -
almost as many as in Inishowen the traditional homeland. This of course was the
ancient area of the O Rourke, although they were Kings of Leitrim their homebase
was the North corner of Leitrim which these baronies form.  It appears that
it is from John son of Edmond that the native families of the Glenfarne-
Manorhamilton area are descended.  He had two sons Edward and Bryan who both 
had sons called John and from these Johns the separate families evolved.
One close to Manorhamilton, the other around GlenFarne.  John son of Bryan
had two sons Bryan and John, while John son of Edward had three sons,
Edw., Martin and John (who died without issue at a young age).  the graves
of these five cousins can be found in Killmakerrill graveyard and from them
c an be traced all the McLoughlins buried in Killmakearrill and the
McLoughlins currently living in that area.
  A Farrell Mc Loughlin is mentioned in the Flax Growers Lists for the
nearby parish of Inishmagrath but it is not known to which line he belongs.  
Other McLoughlins mentioned in and around Drumhaire may be descendants 
from Conn or Teige who are mentioned in 1641.

  Unfortunately the first Turlogh in the annals in 1603 cannot with 
certainty be placed in the MacLoughlin of Leitrim pedigrees from O'Farrell
or O'Clery.

  Historical References to the above families


1.  MacTiernan of Corry


1462 A.D.  Annals of Connacht  

O Conchobair won a victory at Ath Lechta Casc in which Diarmait 
son of Brian and Tadc son of Tadc Mac Tigernain na Corra were 
killed.  

  There's a mistake in this translation:

Seaan mac Taidc Meic Tigernain na Corra

  The Four Masters get it right.

1462 A.D.  Four Masters

Dermot, the son of Donough, son of Brian, and John, the son of 
Teige MacTiernan na Corra, were slain in the battle.

  Hogan's Onamasticaon has the following for corra:

Corra: Mac Tigearnain na Corra; Corraygowan towards Ballintober; 
FM iv, 1018 [this is a reference to the year 1462]

Corra an gabair: O Conor atacked C. an Gabiar in Branan's 
country, on the brink of the Aba Dubaicen, in E. of c. Rosc.; 
or Corragore, or Corragowan (C. Gabann).

For Corra an Gabann, the editor of the Annals of Connacht has:

in bar. of Ballintober N., Roscommon (?); battle 1462.

The Annal entry in 1462 actually consists of two separate battles.  
It begins:

"Tadc O Conchobair and his Kinsmen fought a battle at Corra an Gobann
with the son of Brian Ballach, Mac Diarmata and the Corca Achlann...
then follows the entry for Mac Tigearnain na Corra.

  O'Donovan quotes from the Annals of D.F.:

A.D. 1462

"Thady O'Conner, and his kinsmen, and his sons, came into the north 
part of Balintober, they on Donday, in Corraygowann...."

  The consensus seems to be that the reference to Mac Tigearnain na 
Corra is equivalent to Corra an Gobann or Corraygawann in the Barony 
of Balintober in Roscommon County.


  This is the same line traced in paragraph 1442 of O Clery:

2.  MacTiernan Naban


1487 A.D.  Annals of Ulster

"And, as Ua Domnaill did not catch Ferghal Carrach himself, to 
deliver him up for that deed, the son of Mag Tighernain of the 
[river] Buannaid was delivered to the clergy of the church in 
pledge [for reparation] of that burning and so on.

1487 A.D.  Four Masters

"and as O'Donnell was not able to overtake Farrell Carragh, 
to avenge that evil doing upon him, he delivered up the 
grandson of Tiernan of Buannaid to the clergy of the church, 
to be detained by them as a pledge for that burning."

  Mac Mic Tigernain na Buannaide [Annals of Ulster]

  Hogan's Onamasticon has:

1591 State Papers

"The chief ordinary forces  and strength of men to serve 
O'Rourke in his wars are, the McLoughlins, the  McMorrices, 
and the Clantyernene.  These had sixteen quarters of land 
amoungst  them as their inheritance, called Ylaugh, and the 
lands of Cleanlough.   These had never bonnaught of O'Rourke 
but only their shares of preys and spoils that were taken."

  The Census of 1659 lists a townland called Clunlogher in 
the parish of Killargand & Clunelagher.  Is this is same 
location as Cleanlough referred to in the State papers above?

"These had sixteen quarters of land amoungst them as their inheritance"

  This implies a close relation among the MacLoughlins, the 
MacMurrays and the Clantyernenes, i.e, a common and close descent.  
This would probably rule out both the clainne Tigearnain na Corradh 
and the Meg Tigernain Teallaigh Dunchadha, neither of whom were 
closely related to the other families named in the document.

O Farrell calls the Clainne Tigearnain na Buannaidh "MacTernan Naban" 
in the Linea Antiqua.  Is "Naban" a corrupt anglicisation of "Na Buannaidh?"

  The O Clery genealogies terminate in this line with the 
grandsons of Tigearnain O Rourke 'of the river Buannaidh.'  
This Tigearnan O Rourke appears to be the man named in the 
annal entry of 1487.  We have two slightly different translations 
of the text:  the son of Mac Tighearnain and the grandson of 
Tigearnain from AU and FM respectively.  Which one is correct?  
And does it make any difference?  
  Does "Mac Mic" indicate a surname?  Or did O'Donovan get it 
right with his "son of the son of (grandson of) translation.



     McTernan Naban

  Awly O Rourke, Lord of Breffny, d. 1258
   |
  Melachlin O Rourke, Lord of Dartry & Clan Fearnmaigh d. 1274
   |
  Tigernan, a quo McTernan Naban ca. 1300
   |
  Murchertach, had four sons ca. 1330
   |
  Art, Bryan, Coconag, Matha ca. 1360



    In the Annal entry of 1487, according to the O'Donovan
translation, the grandson of Tiernan na Buannaidh was taken hostage.
This is presumably the Tigernan in the pedigree above.  But this
Tigernan would have lived around 1300 A.D., and his grandsons
no later than 1370 A.D.  This annal entry in 1481 therefore cannot be
describing the Tigernan in the above pedigree.
  In other words, no grandson of this Tigernan could possibly have
been alive in 1481.  Therefore this passage probably should be 
translated as in the Book of Ulster, i.e., Mac Tighearnain, a 
surname (Mac Mic Tighearnain).

  No other members of this line are named in the Annals; and even 
if they were they would be untraceable in O Clery since his line 
terminates in the grandsons of Tigearnan.  The line is also untraced 
in O Farrell past the same point.  So we have a total blank until late 
in the 16th century, when a clantyernene are named as sharing a common 
inheritance with the MacLoughlins and the MacMurrays in Leitrim 
(probably the barony of Dumaheir).
  According to the O Clery genealogies, the Clainne Tigearnain na 
Buannaidhe, the MacLoughlins and the MacMurrays were all descended 
from Amlaibh O Rourke, the son of Art son of Domhnall, which is of 
course the exact type of close descent (inheritance) described in 
the 1591 State Papers entry.


3.  Mac Cahal Reagh


  There is a mention of this family in 1542 in the State Papers
as one of the septs under O Rourke.

  (12) If O'Rwerch should be spoiled by any Irishmen, and,
upon complaint exhibited to the Lord Deputy, no restitution
should be made to him, then in that year he shall not
pay the said subsidy of 20l, if the sum of the spoil should
not (sic) exceed the half of the said subsidy.


   MacTiernans or O Rourkes?

  There is considerable debate in certain circles as to whether
the MacTiernans named in the Linea Antiqua in descent of Ualarg
O Rourke were in fact MacTiernans or O Rourkes.  Some believe
all of the MacTiernans were descended from the MacTiernan of
Tellach Dunchadha sept in Cavan County.
  In the Linea Antiqua these families are clearly labeled
"MacTiernan." And there are historical sources establishing that
at least one MacTiernan sept was native to that county - and
probably not related in any way to the MacTiernan of Tellach
Dunchadha sept of neighboring Cavan County.


  The following document names a Clantyernene, who, along with
the MacLoughlins and MacMureas [McMorrices], who as their
inheritance, held the 16 quarters of Ylagh and the lands of
Cleanlough in Leitrim County.  This description of a common
inheritance can hardly apply to the MacTiernans of Tellach
Dunchadha in Cavan County.

  There are several other historical sources which place a
MacTiernan sept in Leitrim or at least in Connacht (Cavan was
not a part of Connacht).

 1591-2  State Papers
 Feb.

 43. Names of the five baronies in O'Rourke's country, viz., in
Mynterolles, two baronies called Leitrim and Moyghell.  The
M'Grannells enjoyed these two baronies as their proper lands, until
the late O'Rourke's father supplanted them by strong ahdn, and
since that time they have lived under the spending and tyranny of
O'Rourke.  A third barony is called Carryg Allen and is occupied
by a sept of the O'Rourkes, called the O'Rourkes of Carryg Allen.
All these three baronies lie on this side the mountain Sleighoneron,
which divideth the whole country as it were into two parts, the
lands and grounds thereof are fruitful, though some bog and woods.
  The other to baronies lie beyond the said mountain of sleighoneyron, 
viz., the barony of Dromaheare, in which is the country called Brenny 
O'Rourke, O'Rourke's ancient castle having fifty or sixty quarters 
lying about it called Canarvy.  This barony is most champaign ground 
and the best land in all the country. The barony of Roselougher, 
M'Glannough's country. A fast country full of bogs and woods.  And 
the Carrhy, Owen O'Rourke's country, called the O'Rourkes of the 
Carrhy, a champaign and very fruitfull.
  O'Rourke's house, called the newton, is in none of these baronies, 
but standeth upon the border of his country, near to Sligo, and hath 
belonging  unto it eight quarters of land in demsne called Mooyghhellys. 
  The chief freeholders in the country of O'Rourke are the two MacGrannells, 
in Mynterooles, McGlannough, in the Dartry, the O'Rourkes of Carryg Allen,  
the O'Rourkes of the Carrhy, and the MacGawrains. The chief ordinary forces  
and strength of men to serve O'Rourke in his wars are, the McLoughlins, 
the McMorrices, and the Clantyernene.  These had sixteen quarters of 
land amoungst them as their inheritance, called Ylaugh, and the lands 
of Cleanlough.  
These had never bonnaught of O'Rourke but only their shares of 
preys and spoils that were taken."

44. Notes for O'Rourke's country.  In O'Rourke's country there
two sorts of freeholders.  As the M'Glannoughs, M'Grannells, who
were chieftains but subject to O'rourke's spending.  These pretend 
that they owe no service to her Majesty, but only to O'rourke.  The 
others are persons of inferior calling and made freeholders by the 
Commissioners at the establishment of the late composition, with 
reservations of service and tentures to her Majesty. Most of both 
sorts are chargeable with the forfeiture of their freeholds by law, 
for, though some may stand clear of complicity with O'Rourke, they 
may be called upon to prove their first grants, and, not being able 
to do so, Her Majesty may either resume their lands or re-grant them 
with reservations of rent in lieu of their former contributions to 
O'Rourke, as was done in the Brenny, Annaley, and now in Monaghan. Or 
else Her Majesty may expel them all and plant English there, which 
would be hardly taken.  All O'Rourke's places of strength in islands, 
loughs, &c., should be demolished or put into the hands of the English.  
If the Earl of Kildare could be drawn to relinquish his claim to the 
barony of Sligo and take in lieu of it lands in O'Rourke's country, it 
would tend to the civilisation of the country, and John Newton and 
other suitors might by recompensed from the same lands.


  Lastly, the State Paper entry for 1542 describes two MacTiernan
septs in the same document.

1.  MacKerwan

  (7) He will give a hostage to stand to the arbitration
of the Bishop of Meath, the Bishop of Kilmore (Brennensis)
Sir Thomas Cusake, and another to be chosen by O'Rayley,
touching all contentions between himand O'Rayley about the
lands called "Talloha," Mc'Gauran's lands, and the lands of both
the McKerwans.  If the said arbitratiors cannot agree, the
final determination shall be made by the Lord Deputy and
Council.  His request that O'Rayley should likewise give an
hostage is granted.

  There is no doubt this is a reference to the MacTiernans
of Tellach Dunchadha in Cavan County.

  A later clause in the same document lists a McTernan sept
under O Rourke.  This is the same passage that lists a
MacCahal rewe or reagh sept under O Rourke.

  (10) These genlemen here recited shall be in the peace and 
conduct of him and his heirs under the King:- the two 
McGranels, O'Mulmoy, McGlaugh, Kenalowhan, Colloflimme,
McCahelrewe, O'Birne, McTernan, and McAnnauve.

 
  Who were these McTernans?  They are evidently to be differentiated
from the MacKerwans of Tellach Dunchadha in Cavan. 


  Woulfe mentions a MacTiernan sept in Co. Roscommon, said to be
descended from the O'Connors.  Might this not instead be the
MacTiernan of Corry line of the Linea Antiqua, whose territory,
according to our experts, was in Roscommon County?


  Woulfe (Sloinnte Gaedheal is Gall) 

Mac Tigearnain - (1) a branch of the O'Connors in co. Roscommon, 
who are descended from Tigearnan, grandson of Turlogh Mor O'Connor, 
King of Ireland. (2) of a Breifney family, of the same stock as the 
O'Rourkes, who were formerly chiefs of Tellach Dhunchadha, now the barony of
Tullyhunco, in the west of Co. Cavan (3) of a Fermanagh family,
of the same stock as the Maguires, who were formerly chiefs of
Clann Fearghaile. 

  If this is the case, then the MacTiernans of Leitrim were probably
the line labeled MacTiernan Naban in the Linea Antiqua; and it was
these MacTiernans who shared a common inheritance with the MacLoughlins
and MacMurrays of Ylagh and Cleanlough in Leitrim County.
