The chief poet of the name in the 16th century wrote a poem entitled "The Downfall of the Gael," translated into the English language by Sir Samuel Ferguson. The Agnews proper are a sept descended from a branch of the McDonalds, written in Gaelic Mac Gneomhaighe, the surname being common in Scotland and in N.E. Ulster.
