Oral History

Conall Gulban, son of Niall of the Nine Hostages, founded the kingdom of Tír Conaill (Tyrconnell) in the 5th century. It comprises much of what is now County Donegal, and several surrounding areas.

Conall Gulban was thus the ancestor of people such as Colum Cille; the Royal Dynastic House of O'Donnell of Tyrconnell, and its various members as well as the Dunkeld line of Scottish monarchs.
