Manus O'Donnell ( - 1563):
Manus O'Donnell was born in Donegal and in 1537 was inaugurated Lord of Tyrconnell at Kilmacrenan. He invaded the Pale in 1539, but two years later submitted to the Lord Deputy. His son Calvagh deposed him in 1555. He wrote love poetry and satiric verse and undertook to supervise the writing of a life of St Colmcille at Lifford Castle, where he was captive. This was completed in 1536. The manuscript is now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford.
