Mac Aodhagáin (English: Egan or Keegan), is an Irish Gaelic clan of Brehons who were hereditary lawyers - firstly to the Ó Conchobhair Kings of Connacht, and later to the Burkes of Clanricarde.[1][2]

The earliest surviving Irish law manuscript, In Senchas Már, was written prior to 1350 at a school (patronised by the Mac Aodhagáin) at Duniry, near Loughrea.[1] Other branches of the clann maintained schools at Park, outside Tuam, and at Ballymacegan in Co. Tipperary.[3] The work known as Leabhar Breac was produced by one of their students, while Dubhaltach MacFhirbhisigh may have studied at Ballymacegan under Flann Mac Aodhagáin up to the year 1643.[citation needed]

Naming conventions[edit]

The surname has been Anglicised in a variety of ways, including as Mac Egan, Egan, Eagan, Keegan,[4] or Keigan, McKiegan, and McKagan.[citation needed]
