The Mac Neils of Barra were famous [or imfamous] sea raiders who would rob ships and coastal areas one of the King James's of Scotland after having yet another of his courtiers complaining about being robbed told the Mac Neil to come before him and answer for his crime.
Mac Neil said "if the King wants to see me let him come to me".
The Mac Neils are also relations of the O Neils Kings of Ulster.
