as a Dalcassian sept on the borders of Galway

in 1172 which was almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland
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. The name claims direct descent from Maolaneididh, who was King of Conmacne and died with Brian Boru at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014.
