Below are the results for the Mulligan of Westmeath. The results appear to
share key elements of the R1b1c7 haplogroup. Though, it has the value of 13
rather than 12 at DYS388. This could be a more recent random mutation. If the
MacFirbis reference to the ‘Muinter Mailchen in Cineul Fiachaidh in Kineleagh,
County Westmeath’ is correct, are there comparable DNA samples with the Ui
Failge. I understand the O'Connors were chiefs of the Clan? Are you aware of
any research on this Clan?

don't see any references to Mulligans in O Clery (at least in Westmeath).
There is a section on the Fiachrach m. Neill, which includes pedigrees for
H. Mail Mhuaidh (Molloy), Mheg Eochacan (MacGeoghegan) and .H. Uigind
The only thing even close is a sept said to descend from Floinn da conghal
GENELACH H. MAILGEN THUAITHE DA MUIGHE

This pedigree was identified as "O Mulligan [of Offaly] §1782 by Payton in
his index of the O Clery genealogies in the irish Genealogist. I have no
what he based this on.
