Ó Macháin Mahon, Vaughan: líonmhar i gConnacht. Bhí dhá chlann tábhachtach ann: (1) i gCill Mac Duach - is cosúil gur Baile Uí Mhacháin ba chóir a bheith ar Bhaile Uí Bheacháin sa cheantar san; (2) dream a bhain le Athracht, an ban-naomh, i gCúl Ó bhFinn, Sligeach. Choiméad siad a crois agus bhí cáil orthu faoina bhflaithiúlacht le lucht léinn. Féach Ó Mocháin, leis.
