Feature Title

Clan Conchobhair of the Cenél Éoghain, said to be originally of Magh Ithe and certain septs moving into county Derry about the 10th-11th century. Conchobhar was the son of Fergal, and the great-great grandson of Aedh Uairidhnach, whose descendants included O'Cathain (O'Kane and O'Cane), O'Mullan, MacCloskey and the Clan Diarmatta. The O'Kanes were lords of Creeve (Coleraine area) and Keenaght beginning about the 12th century when they overshadowed the O'Connors of Glengiven (modern Dungiven), and Fir na Craoibhe.
