Indeed so - the history of the O'Neills is recorded by Moncreiffe as
accepted by scholars from around 360 A.D. when Eochu "Mugmedon" was
King of Tara. They were High Kings of Ireland from the 5th century
onwards. The O'Neills claimed descent from Cormac, King of Tara
No Irish records survive from this period, and any person living at that time would have had a name in Classical Celtic, such as Dumnocoveros or Tigirnosenos.
