Mahoney Family History

“Laissir ronam abu”

The torch that leads to victory

(Or Mahony) The name comes from Mathghamhan, son of Cian Mac Mael Muda, a 10th century prince and his wife, Sadbh, who was the High King Brian Boruís daughter. They were of the Eoghanacht, a regal dynasty of Munster. Their Munster possessions were vast. They sprinkled their 14 castles all around the Cork coast, west to Mizan Head. Many of their descendants are still there, many more scattered into new septs or emigrated.
