Encyclopedia > O'Conor Don

The O'Conor Don (Irish: Ó Conchubhair Donn) is the hereditary chieftain of the traditional royal family of Connacht, one of the premier Irish Royal Families a lineage which is descended from the Kings of Connacht. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ... The Kings of Connacht were rulers of the cóiced (variously translated as portion, fifth, province) of Connacht, which lies west of the River Shannon, Ireland. ...


The O'Conor Don was a lordship of one of the three main lines of the O'Conor (Ó Conchobhair) family of Connacht. Many of its leaders were High Kings of Ireland. Well into the 1400s members of their dynasty were recognised as half-kings, or full Kings of Connacht. The succession of descent continues unbroken to the present day, making it one of oldest royal families in Europe. The O'Conor Don is regarded as the senior hereditary chieftain of Ireland and has been styled the O'Conor Don since the fourteenth century. The High Kingship of Ireland was a pseudohistorical construct of the eighth century AD, a projection into the distant past of a political entity that did not become reality until the ninth century. ... The Kings of Connacht were rulers of the cóiced (variously translated as portion, fifth, province) of Connacht, which lies west of the River Shannon, Ireland. ...


According to the obituary published in the Irish Times on 22 July 2000, "it is generally acknowledged that the holder of the title would be the foremost claimant to the Irish throne, if one were proposed. Over the last few hundred years, members of the O'Conor family have continued to contribute to the social, political, cultural and religious life of Ireland. The fact that they remained staunchly Catholic during the dark days of the Penal Laws in the eighteenth century, is a source of great pride." The Irish Times is Irelands newspaper of record, launched in the late 1850s. ... In the most general sense, penal is the body of laws that are enforced by the State in its own name and impose penalties for their violation, as opposed to civil law that seeks to redress private wrongs. ...


The present holder is Desmond O'Conor Don.
