Missing generations 31 to 41

I've always been fascinated with the ancestry claims of the Irish.  Genealogies trace families back to Adam.  Well, as we know that is a bit suspicious, but.....as the Kelly DNA project grows, the ability to sort out lineages continues.  Our Madden lineage is linked by DNA to the Kelly line.  With the recently completed the Big Y test for Count Walter and the dedicated work of project head Aidan Kelly we are somewhat confident that the break in our lines was no more than 16 generations ago, some 22 generations after Eoghan Finn and Eoghan Buac established the lines that became the O'Kelly's and the O'Maddens. 

The count has a genealogy back 41 generations that is generally considered to be accurate.  So here is our current supposition of our Madden Family Lineage.
  1. Maine Mor was born in 350 
  2. Bresal was born in Ui Main
  3. Dallan was born in Ui Maine
  4. Lughaidh was born in Ui Maine
  5. Feradhach was born in Ui Maine Ireland
  6. Cairpri Crom was born in Ui Maine
  7. Cormac was born in Ui Maine
  8. Eoghan Finn (Northern Ui Maine) brother of Eoghan Buac (Southern Ui Maine - O'Maddens)
  9. Dicholla was born in Ui Maine
  10. Diuthach was born in Ui Maine 
  11. Fithchellach was born in Ui Maine 
  12. Innrachtach was born in Ui Maine
  13. Oiloill was born in Ui Maine 
  14. Finnachta was born in Ui Maine 
  15. Ceallach Chief of Ui Maine died about 874 in Ui Maine. He was progenitor of the family of O'Kelley.  
  16. Aedh Mic Ceallaigh
  17. Murchadh Ua Ceallaigh was born in Ui Maine. He died in 960. First in Ui Maine to use Ua Ceallaigh
  18. Tadhg Mor Ua Ceallaigh (Teige O'Kelly) was born in 955 in Ui Maine. He died Killed in the Battle of Clontarf, Good Friday in 1014.
  19. Conor Ua Ceallaigh was born in Ui Maine. He died in battle slain by the men of Tefia in 1030. 
  20. Conor Ua Ceallaigh
  21. Tadhg Ua Ceallaigh was born in Ui Maine. He died in 1074.
  22. Diarmaid Ua Ceallaigh was born in Ui Maine 
  23. Conchobar Moenmoy Ua Ceallaigh  was born in Ui Maine.  He was a Chief of Ui Maine for 40 years.  He died in the Battle of the Conors in 1180 in Co Galway.
  24. Tadhg Ua Ceallaigh of Tailtean (Co Meath) died in the Battle of the Conors in 1180 in Co Galway Ireland.
  25. Domnhall Mor Ó Ceallaigh was born in 1172 in Co Galway.   In 1203 he was a Chief of Hy-Many.  Ancestor of all but four Chiefs who came after him.
  26. Conchobhar Mar "Connor Mor" Ó Ceallaigh  was born in 1201 in Ui Maine Ireland. In 1247 he was a Chief of Hy-many which I believe had been made smaller by the English invasion and the ending of the O'Kelley of Bregia in Meath and Hy-Many was now comprised of only Co Roscommon and Galway.1 He died in 1268. Connor Mor married a O'Heyne. 
  27. Donnchadh Muimhneach Ua Ceallaigh was born in 1240 in Hy-Many Ireland. In 1297 he was a Chief of Ui Maine.1 Donnchadh died in 1307 in Ahascragh Castle, Co. Galway, Ireland. 
  28. William Mac Donnough Moyneagh "Boy" Ó Ceallaigh of Callow Castle was born in 1297 in Co Galway. He died in 1381 in Gailey Castle, Knockcroghery, Co. Roscommon, Ireland. Boy was buried in 1381 at Kilconnell Abbey.
  29. Maeleachlainn Ó Ceallaigh was born  1326 in Gailey Castle, Co. Roscommon. In 1375 he was a Chief of Hy-Many. He died in 1401. 
  30. Donnchadh Ua Ceallaigh 1374 Gailey Castle, Roscommon - 1424 buried in Abbey of Rindun.  Chief of Hy Many and 24th O'Kelley in 1410. Slain by arrow from son of William. (7th grandson)  DNA connection to here.

  1. Your DNA is R-BY3440 same as mine so the Illegitimacy claim can be eliminated. I tend to believe we are more likely to be of the line of the 9th Son William's generation 30. I believe our common ancestor to possibly be 32 Aedh (Hugh) Na Coille O'Kelly C.H.M 1467 to slain 1469. Only because there is mention of O'Madden at generation 32 on this line.
