Fiachra to Guaire

The line of Fiachra, from Irish Pedigrees by O'Hart, Volume 1, page 754. (See also the line from Milesius to Fiachra.)
  1. Fiachra Folt-leathan ("folt:" Irish, vein; "leathan," broad) : the second son of Eochaidh MuighMeadhoin, the 124th Monarch of Ireland; a quo were called the territories in Connaught known as Tir Fiachra or "Fiachra's Country,") and a quo O'Fuiltleathan, anglicised Fulton. This Fiachra had two sons —1. Amhailgadh, and 2. Dathi: the former was the second Christian King of Connaught, who died without issue; it was after him that the territory of Tir Amhailgaidh, now the barony of "Tyrawley," in the county Mayo, was so called.
  2. Dathi: second son of Fiachra Folt-leathan; was the 127th Monarch. This Dathi (in imitation of the heroic actions of his uncle, the Monarch Niall of the Nine Hostages, and in prosecution of the conquest of France undertaken by the said uncle, but prevented by his death,) went with a great army into France; and, marching over the Alps, was there killed by a thundefbolt, which put an end to his conquest and life together, A.D. 428.
  3. Eocha Breac: his son. This Eocha had three brothers —1. Olioll Molt, the 129th Monarch of Ireland, who, leaving no issue, was slain in the battle of Ocha, A.D. 478; and 2. Fiachra Ealg, who was the ancestor of O'Dowd; 3. Amhailgadh, who was the ancestor of Forbes and MacFirbis.
  4. Eoghan (or Owen): son of Eocha Breac. This Owen had a daughter named St. Faoileann, whose feast is on the 13th Sept.
  5. Conall: his son; had a brother named Conn Berneach, who was the ancestor of Moghan.
  6. Gobhneann: his son.
  7. Cobthach: his son.
  8. Columhan ("columban:" Irish, a prop; Lat. "columna;" Welsh, "colovn;" Span. "coluna:" Gr. "kolona"): his son; was the 10th Christian King of Connaught, and the ancestor of Colman, of that province. Had a brother Aodh who was the ancestor of Cahill, of Connaught.
  9. Guaire Aidhne: his son; the 12th Christian king; a quo O'Guaire, ("guaire:" Irish, rough hair); anglicised Gware and Gurry; had a brother named Hugh.
From Guaire are descended the chief septs of the Uí Fiachrach Aidhne.

Surnames of septs belonging to the tribes of Uí Fiachrach, or Hy Fiachrach, North and South, who are the descendants of Fiachra Folt-Leathan. (Septs of Uí Fiachrach Aidhne are in red.)

* O'Aodha; In Connaught since the Cromwellian Settlement of Ireland, the O' has been ommitted by most of the natives of that province. The Milesian gentry, there, however, still use that prefix as a mark of distinction between themselves and their co-relatives, the peasantry of the same race. (1872 A.D.)

† O'Goirmghiallaigh; This Connaught family is distinct from the O'Gairmleadhaigh (or Gormley) family of Ulster.
