Coolavin (Irish Cúl ó bhFionn) is a barony in south County Sligo, in the Republic of Ireland.[1] It was created from the ancient túath of An Corann. The Mac Dermot clan still claim their head to be the Prince of Coolavin to this day.[2]


The Barony is located in the South of County Sligo.


The O'Garas were the Lords of Coolavin. They were succeeded by the MacDermotts, the only family of the Milesian clans to have a retained a title, the Prince of Coolavin.[3]
