  • Notes 
    • Cathair [cahir] Mor, son of Felim Fiorurglas, was the 109th Monarch of Ireland from 119 to 123 AD.

      This Monarch was King of Leinster in the beginning of the second century. He divided his great possessions amongst his thirty sons, in a Will called "The Will of Cahir More," contained in the "Book of Leacan" and in the "Book of Ballymote." His posterity formed the principal families in Leinster: namely the O'Connor "Faley," Princes of Offaley; O'Dempsey, O'Dunn, O'Regan, MacColgan, O'Harty, MacMurrough, Kings of Leinster; Cavenagh, O'Byrne, O'Toole, O'Murphy, O'Mulrian, or O'Ryan, O'Kinsellagh, O'Duffy, O'DOWLING, OCormac, O'Muldoon, O'Gorman, O'Mullen, O'Mooney, and O'Brenan, chiefs in Kilkenny, etc.- Connellan

      O'Toole or Ui Tuathail: The O'Tooles were Kings of Leinster and princes of Imaile (now counties Wicklow and Kildare), Chieftains of Hy-Murray, Castle Kevin, Glendalough, and Powerscourt; and Omey in West Connaught. This pedigree was in the possession of Rev. Patrick Laurence O'Toole, OCC, Whitefriar Street, Church Dublin at time of writing.

      The Armorial Bearings are Arms: Gu. a lion pass. ar. Crest: A boar pass. ppr. Motto: Vertute et fidelitate. However, some other authorities show the bearings to be: Arms: A white lion on red grounds (signifying a course without relaxation); Crest: Two palms, a Cross surmounted by a laurel branch over a princely crown; Supporters: The shield accompanied by two battle axes and two Irish pikes under the shield, two branches of shamrock (the national symbol of Ireland); Motto: Virtute et Fidelitate. One branch has "Spero"; another Semper et Ubique Fideles." The War Cry was: "Fianae Abu" and sometimes "Ui Tuathail Abu" the former meaning "Victory to the Fenians"; and the later "Victory to the O'Tooles."
