Those of Leinster were clearly Heremonians, as having been the offspring of Cathaeir (Caheer) Mor, King of Leinster, and Monarch of Ireland, in the second century. From the same monarch are descended O'Conor Faly, O'Duffy, Mac Murrough, now O'Cavanagh, O'Dunne, O'Ryan, O'Byrne, O'Dempsey, O'Toole, Mac Patrick, or Fitzpatrick, besides many other names of note in Leinster.
