MacDermot, Brian, Chief of Magh Luirg, between 1585 and 1592, had his principal residence on an island in Loch Cé, near Boyle, and died in November 1592. He is worthy of remembrance as the owner, restorer, and continuer of the Annals of Lough Cé, the only copy of which known to exist is in the Library of Trinity College. They originally commenced with the year 1014 and ended with 1590, but are now imperfect. They have been edited in the historic series of the Master of the Rolls, with translation, notes, and a valuable introduction by William M. Hennessy.
