Also very interesting that one of the symbols of the O'Neill's was the Red Hand, there are a number of stories as to the origins of the res hand but it was pre celtic.

The red hand has now become a major symbol for Northern Loyalists and yet it is one of the oldest Irish symbols.

Funny how people become blindly attached to symbols.
