Rían Ó Maol Chonaire
Actually the name Mac Con Midhe has various meanings. "Son of the Champion of Meath", "Son of the Mead Hound", and "Mead Pigs". This is similar to O'Maolchonaire which can be translated "Descendant of the Servant of (Saint) Conaire", "Descendant of the Wise Monk", and "Descendant of the Red Chieftain". Originally, both were known as Siol Ronain, until they split into Cinel Suibhne (Mac Con Midhe) and Cinel Neachtain (O'Maolchonaire) after two brothers who were their ancestors. They were professional poets and antiquarians to the High Kings, who practiced a form of poetry with many-formed meanings known as Berla na Filidh. See "The Christian Druids: on the Filidh or Philosopher-Poets of Ireland.
