Historical Notes on the Ancient Sept of Clancy/Glancy by Maria ClancyThe Clancys/Glancys of Dartry were part of the old Gaelic aristocracy whose history goes back more than a thousand years in West Breifne, which is partly located today in the counties of Sligo and Leitrim. This book records their history from 1114, when the Annals begin to record them for the first time, right down to the early decades of the twentieth century when a member of the clan was elected to the First Dáil (Parliament) in 1918.
If you are a descendant of the clan whose knowledge of our shared history has been lost with time then this book is a must. Learn about our patron saint, life at 'Manglana's town' by a survivor of the Spanish Armada in 1588 and how our last chieftain met his death. Also townland locations of families in the nineteenth century.
The author has compiled a number of Clancy/Glancy pedigrees relating to the Leitrim/Sligo/Roscommon areas. Please contact her direct if you have any queries.
