Feidlim Ua Conchobair aka Fedhlim O'Connor was King of Connacht in Ireland, having been proclaimed King by William de Burgh in 1230, he reigned from 1233–65. Fedhlim died in 1265 and was buried in the Dominican Priory in Roscommon which he founded in 1253. He was succeeded by his eldest son Aedh mac Felim Ua Conchobair.
Among his sons were Aed MadFedlimid (-1274), and Aed Muimnech MacFedlimid aka Aedh mac Felim Ua Conchobair (-1280). A daughter, Fionnuala Ní Conchobair died in 1301 as abbess of Kilcreevanty, Clonfert. Having married while his brother Aedh Ua Conchobair was designated heir, he more than likely married someone of non-noble birth and thus her name does not appear in the annals.
