(Redirected to Kings of Uí Maine article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Uí Maine was the name of a kingdom situated in south Connacht, consisting of all of County Galway east of Athenry, all of southern and central County Roscommon.

In prehistory it was believed to have spanned the River Shannon, and in the 8th Century even briefly extended its dominion west to Galway Bay. It existed as an independent kingdom from prehistoric times, and as a subject kingdom up to the end of the medieval era.

The descendants of the last Ó Cellaigh/O'Kelly Kings of Uí Maine are currently known as the O'Kelly of Gallagh and Tyrcooly, and are Counts of the Holy Roman Empire.
