Please re-reads my previous posting, the OSullivans may have adopted the name Buadhach/Buadhaigh as it conferred the name 'victorious' champion, that does not mean per-se that the O'Buadaigh/Buadhach 'sept' were related to the O'Sullivans. As to the Irish Annals/ Eoghonact Chronicles, these were 17/18th Century interpretations, that failed to note that an earlier 15th Century specifically text links Buadhaigh with the Corca Laoidhe.

Date: Monday, 2 February, 2009, 3:12 PMYou'll see in the Eoghanacht Genealogies file that there are a number of "first" name
Buadachs, but also O'Buadaigh specifically appears.

with the Corca Laoidhe is earlier and perhaps more reliable.
