History[edit] As a result of the Burke Civil War of the 1330s, the Lordship of Connacht
was split between two opposing factions of the de Burgh family: the Burkes of Mac William Uachtar (or Clanricarde) in southern Connacht
and the Mac William Íochtar
Mac William Íochtar
Bourkes of northern Connacht. For over three hundred years, the two families dominated the politics of the province, frequently fighting each other for supreme rule of both the Anglo-Irish
and Gaelic-Irish peoples. List of Mac William Íochtar[edit]
