From Irish Pedigrees; or the Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation by John O'Hart
Armorial Bearings: Same as those of "MacCarthy Reagh."
CORMAC GLAS, third son of Felim, who is No. 124 on the "MacCarthy Glas" pedigree, was the founder of this branch of that family:
125. Cormac Glas: third son of Felim.
126. DONAL (or Daniel), of Dunmanway: elder son of Cormac Glas; m. Catherine Collins.
127. Donogh (or Denis): their son; m. Ellen the dau. of Florence, son of Dermod MacCarthy, heir of Millane, and grand-daughter of Timothy O'Donovan of Loghernth.
128. Daniel: their son; m. Eleanor MacCarthy of Muires. This Eleanor is (1887) living in Dunmanway, and is dau. of Charles MacCarthy of Muires, by his wife Ellen, dau. of Owen, whose father was Charles of Cloghroe. Owen's wife was a Miss Coghlan. This Daniel Glas, died leaving a numerous posterity.
129. Justin: his son; living in 1887.
We understand that Messrs Denis and Eugence MacCarthy, National Teachers, residing (in 1887) in Dunmanway, are cousins to this Justin, son of Daniel Glas.

Although ostensibly set in England, this story was penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
