'The Tribes and Customs of Hy Many, commonly called O'Kellys Country, now first published from the Book of Lecan, a Manuscript in the Library of the Royal Irish Acadamy, with a translation and notes, and a map of Hy Many, by John O'Donovan.'
'Pedigree of Mac Eoachadha or Makeogh or Keogh. There were several families of the name in Ireland, but those of Magh Finn, in Hy Many, were by far the most distinguished. They are a branch of the O'Kellys who took a separate surname after ancestor...The pedigree of Dr. William Makeogh has already been given...and there is a short notice of the family preserved in a paper...in Trinity College...which is worth publishing, as it preserves some curious notices of the family not given in the Book of Lecan, or in any other authority known to the editor.'
