O'Dea of Dysert – Ó Deághaidh Dísert

O'Dea Ó Deághaidh Dísert is a Dalcassian clan based around their main seat at Dysert (Co. Clare). O'Dea is a name associated almost exclusively with the County Clare and the areas such as Limerick City and North Tipperary which immediately adjoin it. It is not a common name anywhere and even in County Clare is not numerous outside the part of the county where it originated. This is indicated by the place names Tully O'Dea and Dysert O'Dea, the site of a famous battle in 1318. The head of the clan was chief of a considerable territory comprising much of the Barony of Inchiquin.
