O'NOLAN: Of this name Mr. D'Alton remarks: "The O'Nolans were a sept of the highest antiquity, especially in co. Carlow, where they gave name to the district of Fothart O'Nolan, within which, immediately after the English invasion, Hugh de Lacy erected one of those castles which his provident care designed to sentinel the Pale. A very interesting memoir of this sept is appended to the third volume of Sir Bernard Burke's Visitation of Seats and Arms. The native annals commemorate their achievements from the earliest introduction of surnames, and a succession of recorded inquisitions testifies the extent of their territory.
