Ptolemy tells us that in those days (the second century A.D.) the area we now know as Tipperary was occupied by the Coriondi. Later, the southern part of the county was called Magh Femin or Desie Thuasgeart, while the central part was Corca Eathrach. Further north was part of Ormond, including Eoganacht and Hy Kerrin, and on the northwest edge of the county Aradh Cliach. The main clans were O'Kennedy, O'Brien, O'Carroll, O'Magher, O'Fogarty, O'Mulrian (Ryan), Burke and Butler. Lesser clans or septs included O'Larkin, O'Scully, O'Gleeson, O'Reid, O'Donegan, O'Lynch, O'Mackey, O'Meara, O'Danagher, O'Cahill, O'Halley, Purcell, O'Spillane, Mathew, O'Dinan, O'Dwyer, O'Leahy, O'Lonergan, O'Kearney, Everard, O'Quirke, O'Luby, O'Mulcahy, O'Slattery, O'Trehy, Prendergast, and Tobin.
