Ó Coileáin Collins: an-líonmhar ar fud na tíre, go speisialta i gCorcaigh & iarthar Luimnigh, áit a raibh a ndúiche shinnseartha, Uí Conaill Gabhra. Chuir na Normannaigh an ruaig orthu i 1178 agus chuadar go dtí iarthar Chorcaí mar aon leis na Donnabhánaigh. Maidir le brí: tugtar coileán = madra óg ach ní féidir bheith cinnte de.
