Mahon

El apellido MacMAHON (en irlandés Mac Mathghamha) es uno de los más conocidos y distinguidos de Irlanda. Llevan este apellido dos clanes bien distintos. El más importante es el de Co.Clare, en el que todavía sus descendientes son numerosos. Viene de Mahon, hijo de Murtagh Mor O'Brien, rey de Irlanda, que murió en 1119. Los MAHON de Ulster llegaron a ser en el siglo XIII señores de Oriel, al declinar el poder de los O'Carroll. Estos están principalmente asociados a Co.Monaghan. Se encuentran en la actualidad en el lugar nº 64 (ver apellidos) dentro de los más frecuentes en Irlanda. Para O'Hart están entre las familias descendientes de Cairbre an Daimh, hijo de Eochaidh, nº 90 en el pedigree de los O'Hart, de la línea de Heremon. En los Libros de Entradas de Pasajeros al Puerto de Buenos Aires figuran 42 personas de este apellido, llegadas entre 1825 y 1877.

The McMahon Surname comes from the Irish Mathgamha or MacMathúna meaning bear. There are two distinct septs, the main one being from Clare. Mahon was the son of Murtagh Mor O'Brien who was king of Ireland. He died in 1119. The last inaugurated chief of the name fell at Kinsale in 1602. The Ulster sept were lords of Oriel . They came to prominence with the decline of the O'Carrolls. Bernard (1680 - 1747), his uncle Hugh who died in 1737 and his brother Ross Roe (1698 - 1748) were all archbishops of Armagh. They had previously been bishops of Clogher. Three out of five bishops who held the see of Clogher were McMahons. Heber McMahon (1600 - 1650) was a leader of the confederate Catholics. He commanded the Ulster army and died on the scaffold.Hugh, the last chief of the Ulster sect, was betrayed by Owen O' Connolly and beheaded in 1641. Col. Brian McMahon fought at Benburb and was on the supreme council of confederate Catholics. The name was also prominent in King James' Irish army. Col. Art McMahon's infantry regiment was notable in France's Irish brigade. John McMahon (1715 - 1780) was born in France.

The Irish names Mahon and McMahon now rank among the seventy most frequently found in the country. County Clare is the ancestral homeland to the native Gaelic Mac Mathghamha Septs who were a branch of the ruling O'Briens. Mathghamhna was a son of one of the high Kings of Ireland.
