Revision as of 05:09, 29 June 2009

Ollamh Síl Muireadaigh was a hereditary post, held almost exclusively by members of the Ó Maolconaire family, from at least the 13th to the 17th century.

An ollamh was the highest rank in the learned orders of law, poetry, or history. These educated professionals, today grouped together in the popular consciousness as "bards", maintained an oral tradition that pre-dated Christianization of Ireland.

It is likely that the post had existed for at least as long as the Síl Muireadaigh dynasty themselves, but earlier ollamhs are unknown. The first of the family so listed was Dúinnín Ó Maolconaire.
