Early recorded Flannerys in Ireland (8th - 18th Centuries)

10th Century

  • Flannabhra, later chief of the Umhalls

    Seven generations after Flannabhra who died in 778, another individual named Flannabhra emerged as the chief of the Umhalls. He was a grandson of Maille (eponymous ancestor of the O'Malley family), and died around 950. He was possibly the ancestor of the Connaught sept of Flannabhra, but there is only circumstantial evidence to support this theory at present.
