Kings of Tír Chonaill

Tír Ċonaill (anglicized as Tyrconnell) was the name of a kingdom which covered much of what is now County Donegal.

Oral history

It was founded in the fifth century by a son of Niall of the Nine Hostages, Conall Gulban, of whom the Cenél Conaill are descendants. His descendants ruled the kingdom till the Flight of the Earls in September 1607, which marked the end of the kingdom.
