Ó Cinnéide

The earliest recorded occupants of Redwood are the O'Kennedy sept who are referred to in possession of the castle in the 1540s. However, it was likely to have previously been in possession of the O'Maddens whose east Galway lordship once extended into the north of Ormond and the parish of Lusmagh beyond. They seem to have lost this territory in the 1440s and it would appear that the sept of O'Kennedy Roe came into possession of the castle around that time.
