Gosh WG - I bet that surprises some people, it certainly surprised me!

Of course, I've never subscribed to the view that 'celtic' meant only Scots/Welsh/Irish/Cornish/Breton/Basque - but I never knew there were QUITE so many tribes!

My father's male line ("Carlos") were likely of Ireland's "Ui Briuin Ai - Central Connacht." The specific sept was Clan Cathail (aka Sil Cathail).

I am of Carlos' of Ireland, County Roscommon around Strokestown. I am a Carlos-of-Ireland one-name researcher. Carlos'-of-Ireland were likely part of Clann Cathail (below). It's accidental that the name sounds Spanish or Portuguese. Some Carlos' of County Roscommon come down to present day as "Don Carlos," where I believe the "Don" either refers to the color brown or the goddess Danu. The closest I can tell without hiring a professional genealogist, Cathail morphed into Carlos, Corliss, Cahill, and many other spellings (with or without the O').

In the 1800s, known individuals having married Carlos' of County Roscommon were Duffy, Fallon, Flanagan, Gill, Hanley, McDermott, Moran, Teague (with or without Mac or O').

Clann Cathail and Clan Connor - Ó Maoilbreannain (Mulrennan) is noted as a sept of Clan Cathail, chief of Clanconnor (in Castlereagh barony). Ó Flannágain (O'Flanagan) is listed as a chief of Clan Cathail, with territory between Mantua and Elphin. Ó Mughróin (O'Moran) is cited as a chief of Clann Cathail, as head of a powerful family seated at Ballintober in Co. Roscommon. Ó Mughráin (O'Moran) is noted early in Co. Galway as chief of Criffon, in the barony of Killian, Roscommon and part of the barony of Ballymoe, Galway.

Clann Cathail is named from Cathal, the son of Muireadhach Muilleathan, who lived in the late 7th/8th century. O'Donovan describes the territory of Clann Cathail (the O Flanagan of Mag n-Aoi in Roscommon) comprising the parishes of Kilmacumshy, Kilcorkey, Shankill, and parts of the parishes of Creeve and Elphin. This was on the borders of the baronies of Roscommon, Castlereagh and Frenchpark.
