This paper extends on the author’s 2008 article in the Other Clare journal which referenced a sixteenth century feud between branches of the McEnerhiny (McInerney) lineage of Ballysallagh in Kilnasoolagh parish, County Clare. This paper details the context behind the intra-sept feud amongst the McEnerhiny deirbhfhine in light of a discovered Court of Chancery bill. The paper will explore conflict among the extended kinfolk of Irish septs and present evidence on landholding arrangements in the sixteenth century Mac Conmara lordship of West Clann Chuiléin.

Clare County Library is grateful to Luke McInerney for donating this article which was originally published in the North Munster Antiquarian Journal, vol. 49, 2009, pp 1-26.
