O Sullivan or O Sullevan or O Sowlevan - Irish / Ua Suileabhain - suil (eye). A Heberian Eoghanacht Chaisil Sept / Family branch who were originally the Princes / Tanaistes of Eoghanachta Mor, Cnoc Graffan in Middlethird in the south of Co.

619 Their main direct ancestor *95.Fingin mac Aeda who was the Heberian Eoghanacht Chaisil joint 9th King of Cashel / Munster who was married to Mor Mumhan, died, and he is also the ancestor of the O Keeffes, and a brother to Failbhe Flann the 11th King of Cashel / Munster the ancestor of the Mac Carthys and the O Callaghans,
1169 From this time on they were driven further to the south - west into Co. Kerry and Co. Cork by the never - ending encroaching onslaught of the Anglo - Norman English Invasion on their original territory in Co. Tipperary. In Co. Kerry they became the Vera O Sullivans, and later a further 2 main Eoghanachta Chaisil Septs, with the predominant one being The O Sullivan Mor who eventually settled around Kenmare Bay in Co. Kerry, and the other The O Sullivan Beare / Beara who were situated at Bantry in Co. Cork on the Beara Peninsula.
1253 Another O Sullivan Sept was also to be created from the O Sullivan Mor Sept's devotion to their kinsman, Allen O Sullivan the Bishop of Cloyne in Co. Kerry in the south - west of Munster Province, who died at Lismore, because he was so dedicated to St. Mochuda / St. Cuddy, who was also his kinsmen, and they decided to take up the name of Mac Gillicuddy / Mheic Giolla Mocuda (Descended from a son of the servant of St. Cuddy) as well as their O Sullivan surname.
1596 the Dunn Keron Castle was built by The O Sullivan Mor at Neidin (Little Nest) near Kenmare in Co. Kerry and their Cappa na Crushy Castle ruin is also still to be seen nearby. The O Sullivan Mor always presided at the Assemblies of the Munster Chiefs, even when The Mac Carthy Mor attended, and were also responsible for inaugurating him as their King. The Pass of the Deer in Killarney was where the O Sullivans and the O Learys mainly held sway against the ever - encroaching English and their oppression. As the continuing confiscations of the Munster Families' territories occurred the English eventually handed over some of their territories to the sub - Chiefs or "survivors" of the Families who played the game to suite and eventually became non - Catholic to hold on to them. The rest of the main members of the Heberian Eoghanachta Families who continued the resistance were either killed, driven out, or forced into exile, such as Donnell Cam O Sullivan of Beare. The most predominant aristocratic warrior Heberian Eoghanacht Families in Munster were to be descended mainly from *89.Conall Corc who was the Heberian Chaisil 1st King of Cashel / Munster in the 4th Century AD and it was from his time on that their other main Heberian kinsmen, the Dal gCais Sept of Thomond / Tuaisceart Mhumhain / Northern Munster, who had also secured further territory in Southern Connacht / Co. Clare on the south - western side of the River Shannon began to lose their knowledge of their right to share the Kingship of the whole of the Munster Province with the Eoghanachta until the coming of the Vikings totally disrupted the Irish Brehon Law.
