Origins of the Conway Clan Name
The name Mac Conmhide, now Conway, translates as the son of the hound of Meath. This clan originally occupied territories of Counties Tyrone and Derry and were thouthg to have been poets.
Giolla Brighde Mac Con Midhe was such a poet who addressed his poems to the many kings of the 13th century including the O’Neills. The annals in the 13th century record a chief Mac Con Meadha on the Connaught and Leinster borders.
Later by the 16th century the name was strong in Leitrim. The name is found mostly today on Tyrone and Derry. The sept MacNamee was based beside the Shannon in Co. Kilkenny. The Conway sept also belonged to the counties of Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.
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.
