THE O'DEVLINS OF SLIGO

  • Develin in his book thinks "THE O'DEVLINS OF SLIGO

There was at one time a sept of Sligo in Connaught named O'Devlin. They had no known connection with the O'Devlins of Tyrone and have apparently been extinct for many centuries"

  • Corca Fhir Trí - Corca-Firthri, the people of the barony of Gallen (Gailenga), co. Mayo; and the baronies of Leyney (Luigne) and Corran in co. Sligo; as cited in Onomasticon Goedelicum. Citing from the annals, a sept referenced as Ui Dobhailen (O'Devlin or perhaps O'Dolan) is noted with connections to Luighne (Connacht) and the people of Corca Fir Thrí. MacLysaght states that O'Devlin is derived from the Irish O Doibhilin, a sept located in the barony of Corran, County Sligo, matching to the reference of Luighne and Gailenga in the Annals (below). He also notes the surname O'Dolan deriving from the Irish O Dobhailen, further noting this sept in Ui Maine country.

The Annals cite for the term Corco Fir Trí [43][44]

You have an incredible site. The book you are looking for you may have to check some of the rare on line books. I was wondering what your plans are for incorporating the profiles in your study? Thanks for letting me look at your study I got a lot of good ideas. Taylor

I think I have found the book. Grrrr $80 from Ireland for a small paper back. It's in the mail.

Most of the profiles here are notables. Most are very hard to connect to the main tree, but I keep trying.
