Clann Cheallaigh (Irish)
Location of Clankelly, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.
|Sovereign state||United Kingdom|
Clankelly (from Irish Clann Cheallaigh, meaning 'Clan Kelly') is a barony in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. It is the only barony in County Fermanagh not connected to Lough Erne. It is bordered by two other baronies in Northern Ireland: Coole to the south-west; and Magherastephana to the north-west. It also borders two baronies in the Republic of Ireland: Monaghan to the north-east; and Dartree to the south-east.
Clankelly takes its name from Cellach, son of Tuathal, a king of the Ui Chremthainn. The MacDonnell (Irish: Mac Domhnaill) sept of the Clann Cheallaigh are noted here, and by the 13th century, the O'Cannons (Irish: Ó Canannain), who had been ousted as kings of Cinel Conaill, settled here for a period.
