The Three Collas, Oriel and Orior



Clann Ua hÁnluain is descended of Colla da Crioch, one of three brothers who were known as The Three Collas. These brothers conquered a large part of Ulster which became known as Airghialla in Gaelic (Oriel in English). The O'Hanlons were lords of an Eastern territory within Oriel, a land known as Oirthear in Gaelic (Orior in English).

Nine Years War, Flight of the Earls, Plantation of Ulster



While Sir Eocha O'Hanlon tried to retain his title and lands, fighting alongside the English, his son Oghy Og fought with the Gaelic Lords against the English. The nine years war was brought to a close by the Battle of Kinsale starting in the Autumn of 1601 and ending with a disastrous attack on Christmas Eve 1601, though the final peace treaty was only signed in March 1603. Fearing for their lives, many of the Gaelic chieftains fled abroad with their families in 1607. The result of the defeat at Kinsale and the flight of the Earls was the confiscation of lands from the gaelic Lords of Ulster, and their redistribution to English and Scottish planters in the Plantation of Ulster of 1609.
