ACCORDING to some genealogists, Gilla Espuig, who (see p. 530, ante) is No. 117 on the "MacDonnell" (No. 1) pedigree, was son, not of Sir James of Dunluce, but of Colla, the elder brother of Sorley Buidhe, who is No. 115 on that page. That Colla, who mar. a MacQuillan, was known as Coll-dhu-na-Gappal (or "dark-featured Colla, of the Horses"), and died in May, 1558.

Commencing with No. 124 on p. 531, the pedigree should read as follows:—

124. James McDonnell, Barrister-at-Law (living in 1887), who mar. Rosanna Cairns (sister of Earl Cairns), and has two daughters, but no male issue. This James has a brother Robert, M.D., of 89 Merrion-square, Dublin (also living in 1887), who mar. Susan, dau. of Sir Richard McCausland, and has one son John.

125. John McDonnell: son of said Robert; living in 1887.
