The question has always been was Feardorcha O'Neill a  Kelly or a O'Neill and the true son of Conn Bacchach O’Neill. The Descendants of Feardorcha should be in France , the Caribbean, Netherlands and a possibility Co. Limerick, Ireland. There seems to be a strong connection among the Norman Fitzgerald’s and the O'Neill’s of Ulster.  
Con Mor O'Neill d. 1493 was married to Elinor Fitzgerald they became the parents to Conn 'Baccach' O'Neill 1480- 1559 , 1st Earl of Tyrone, he was the grandson of Thomas Fitzgerald , 7th earl of Kildare. Conn 'Baccach' O'Neill married Alice Fitzgerald daughter of Gerald Fitzgerald , 8th Earl of Kildare. One of the most powerful Norman Lords of Ireland.

In my research for my own family these O’Neill’s that many Irish and American Genealogist have not found . With help from the Spanish Archives and other various sources. I  have found these men. Most have a strong military and naval background anyone believes or finds one of these men has part of their ancestors in any family Genealogical records . I would strongly suggest a Y-DNA test.
