Ó Maoilriaghain Mulryan, Mulryne: líon beag: Tír Eoghain-Doire, Gaillimh, Longfort & rl. Is cosúil gur bhain siad sa le clanna a bhí difriúil leis an mór-chlann i dTiobraid Árann atá aistrithe go Ó Riain anois. Bhí an chlann deireannach sa lonnaithe in Uaithne, idir Luimneach agus Tiobraid Árann agus is uathu-san a tháinig an slua mór Rianach atá le fáil i dTiobraid Árann i gcónaí. Níltear cinnte faoi bhrí an bhun-ainm Riaghan ach is cosúil go mbaineann le rí agus ríoga. SGG & SI.
O'Ryan rare: Waterford-Tipperary etc. Ir. Ó Riain. See Ryan.
