Shane O’Neill’s March

Shane O’Neill Seán Mac Cuinn Ó Néill; 1530 – 1567), was an Irish king
of the O’Neill dynasty. Shane O’Neill’s career was marked by his ambition
to be The O’Neill – sovereign of the dominant O’Neill family of Tyrone.
This brought him into conflict with competing branches of the O’Neill
family and with the English government in Ireland. Shane refused to help
the English against the Scottish settlers on the coast of Antrim, allying
himself instead with the MacDonnells, the most powerful of these immigrants.
