(Crest No. 212. Plate 37.)

THE Moroney family is descended from Milesius, King of Spain, through the line of his son Heber. The founder of the family was Cormac Cas, son of Olliol Ollum, King of Munster, A. D. 177, and Sabia, daughter of Con of the Hundred Battles, King of Ireland, A. D. 148. The ancient name was Mormheamnach, meaning “Magnanimous.” The possessions of the sept were located in the present County of Clare and in the barony of Lower Connello, in the County of Limerick.
