Carbery in Tudor times

Teige-an-Duna MacCarthy (Irish: Tadhg an Duna Mac Carthaigh) (1584 – 24 May 1649), Lord of Glean-na-Chroim, was the last hereditary Prince of the Dunmanway branch of the MacCarthy Reagh dynasty of Carbery "who exercised the rights of his position."[1] He was Prince from 1618 to 1648, dying the following year on 24 May 1649. He was also known as Teige the Hospicious for his great hospitality, while his epithet an Duna means "of the Fortress".

During the so-called Insurrection of 1641, Teige-an-Duna was second in command of the MacCarthy Reagh forces.[2] For this his family were dispossessed by the Cromwellians.

He was the son of Eleanor, daughter of Rory MacSheehy, and Teige-an-Fhorsa MacCarthy ("Teige of the Forces"), Lord of Glean-na-Chroim.
