John, There were O' Hare /O"Heir/O'Haire/O'Hara families, and still are in the Derrynoose Parish[ Keady and Tynan] area of Armagh very early .They could be descended from the Lord Coleraine [ Hugh Hare ] lines from Stow Bardoff ,Norfolk , England , first in Ireland 1625 . Ambrose O'Hara was a local cleric during the Penal Law Times at Lagan , Keady . . I saw a few Hare headstones at the Derrynoose Church of St. Mochua last Sept.
There were also O'Neill families there in similar and earlier times .
The area originally settled in Celtic times The original Keady church is near the Holy Well of St. Mochua Only a part of one wall remains . There was a circular cemetery around the church , which has some legible stones but most are sunken in and covered . Founded about 1622 by Mocua Mac Lonain , who,is believed to be buried in the cemetery . I took some good photos , when there in Sept. 2007 . This area had Scotch settlers , but most were of very ancient Irish origins . The Ulster History Foundation may be able to help the person inquiring . The church registers don't go back quite that far[ about 1830 ] , and the early years are almost impossible to read . John Makim , nephew of late Tommy Makim , is a teacher at the high school and a local historian . The family has been in the area many generations . John has posted some history on the internet . It is a small townland with a varied and colorful history and I bet even more interesting Y-DNA , pattern . Might make a good sub project at Ireland Heritage site . My wifes McAdam family does not match the Scottish MacAdams or Gregors and is from Derrynoose .
They are R1b1c tested . #B5QHA at Y-search .
