Feardorca O Meallain (c.1600 - ):
Cleric, Roman Catholic and writer
Feardorcha O Meallain is thought to have been born in County Down. Little is known of his life, but he may have been a priest. He has left only one known work; this deals with the act of parliament of 1652 which banished all opponents of the British parliament east of the Shannon to Connaught and Clare on pain of death.
