25. Feara-Tulach, i.e., Viri collium, now the barony of Fartullagh, in the
south-east of the county of Westmeath. The family of O'Dubhlaidh, now
Dooley, were driven from this territory by the Irish family of O'Melaghlin,
before the English invasion of ireland, and they settled in Ely O'Carroll, in
the present King's county, where they are at this day very numerous. See
Annals of Four Masters, at the years 978, 1021, 1144, 1367. The English
