Muirgheas mac Pháidín Ó Maolconaire
Muirgheas was responsible for writing the vellum manuscript known as Leabhar gabhála, or Leabhar Bhaile Uí Mhaoilchonaire do sgríobh Muirghios mac Paídín Uí Mhaoilchonaire as Liobhar na hUidhre. An incomplete version survives as RIA MS D iv 3
He has sometimes been confused with his great-grandson, Muiris mac Torna Ó Maolconaire (died 1645).
