Ó Leathlobhair Lawlor, Lalor: an-líonmhar: i Laighin agus tuaisceart na Mumhan go speisialta. Bhí an sloinne i bhfeidhm in Ultaibh sa 10 céad ach is i Laois is atáid le brath: bhí cónaí orthu ag Díseart Aonghusa mar cheann de "Sheacht gClann Laoise". Díbríodh iad sa 17 céad go Ciarraí mar a bhfuil cuid acu go fóill ach is ina ndúiche shinseartha is mó atáid fós. Tá áit faoi leith i stair an 19 céad ag Fiontán Ó Leathlobhair (1807-1849) mar gheall ar a theagasc faoi úinéireacht na talún.
