While this is clearly the origin of some of the Carrs of Connacht we must not overlook the fact that the name O'Carr was found in Connacht in the sixteenth century before the pressure of anglicisation, which converted Kerrane into Carr, was noticeable.
The Fiants and the Composition Book of Connacht prove that they were then numerous and not unimportant in that province, chiefly in Co. Sligo but even down to the borders of Clare. O'Dugan in the Topographical Poem mentions the sept of O'Carthaigh of Clancahill, for which O'Donovan gives O'Carthy as the anglicised equivalent, adding that the name was then unknown there: I think it more likely that it had by that time become Carr, and this view is supported by the fact that in the Fiants for the counties in question the name is spelt O'Carhy as well as O'Carre.
In the Fiants we also find , in Co.
Armagh, O'Care and O'Carr -which are indistinguishable in their anglicised form from the Connacht name dealt with above. This is sept of O'Cairre. Donal O'Cairre was one of the Ulster chiefs killed at the battle of Downpatrick in and seventeenth century records such as the Hearth Money Rolls and Petty's "census," record the name O'Carr as numerous in Oriel.
It is manifest, therefore. Having regard to the forms of these names in Irish it is inevitable that confusion has arisen between Carr and Carry, especially as the latter also belongs to Oriel, not only as 0 Cairre but as a Mac name too.
Armagh and the census of approximately the same date found McCarry bracketed with MacCarey one of the most numerous names in the barony of Moycashel, Co. Westmeath , and at the same time Carr was similarly recorded Dunleek, Co. Woulfe gives two Irish surnames for MacCarry viz.
