Origin of the O'Mahony Clan Name
O’Mahony is a gaelic form of the name Ó Mathghamhna, meaning descendant of Mathghamhain (the Good Calf). The forefather of the great Mahoney Clan, Mathghamhain was the son of Cian and Sadhbh, herself daughter of the great Brian Boru.
The O'Mahonys came to the very south west of Ireland in the 6th and 7th centuries and belonged to the clans of the Eóganachta. They lost lands to the MacCarthys when they arrived here in the 12th century, and later to the O'Driscolls and the O'Donovans, but these clans were on good terms and conferred on French and Iberian fleets the right to fish and salt their catch at bases. Until the 15th century they were prosperous and building of religious houses and tower houses was common.
Thank you Stephanie! I have been meaning to write you a note and have been so crazy with work since we returned. The trip was unbelievable! We had a wonderful time and loved every minute of the trip.
