Early Origins of the McEniry family


The surname McEniry was first found in Limerick (Irish: Luimneach) located in Southwestern Ireland, in the province of Munster, where they held a family seat as descendents of Sedna, son of Cairbre Aedbha, descended from Olioll Olum, King of Munster who died 234. The tribe held a family seat on the River Maig to Abbey Feale. Kennith MacEneiry, King of Conallo, was slain in battle in 1029. Irish history, after the Norman Conquest of England, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland, Wales and the whole of Europe before the Norman Conquest from the 1st to 7th centuries. Many Irish clanns, sept names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found later in Casletown McEniry when they clann erected a castle at Kilmoodan. John McEniry, chief of his kin, of Castletown McEniry surrendered his lands but was re-granted them in 1607. Many others were forfeited in the 17th century.
