Melaghlin Reagh Ua Seachnasaigh, Chief of the Name, died 1179.

Ó Seachnasaigh was the first bearer of the surname to be listed as of Cenél Áeda na hEchtge. However, the territory seems to have been contended with the Ó Cathail family. The Annals of the Four Masters record, sub anno 1179:

Melaghlin Reagh O'Shaughnessy, Lord of half the territory of Kinelea, was killed by the son of Donough O'Cahill.

He was a descendant of Seachnasach mac Donnchadh.
