Burke's Irish Family Records. 1976, page 431 gives John FitzGibbon?s father in law as William Hayes.
I can find no other references to a a William Hayes either in reference to Limerick or FitzGibbon.
Most families of the name Hayes belong to the Dalcassian sept of Thomond, now chiefly associated with Counties Limerick and Tipperary. Cormac Cas was King of Thomond around the fifth century and he spawned a tribal grouping known as the Dál gCais or Dalcassians which dominated Munster until the final suppression of the old Gaelic order in the seventeenth century.
Keating states "O'Haodha, O'Hea or Hayes" was found as chief of Musgraidhe Luachra, which lay between Kilmallock* and Ardpatrick, in the barony of Coshlee in Co. Limerick".
The Hayes family is also known as O'Hea, McHugh, Heas, Hayes, Hughes.
*Cahir Guillamore is near Kilmallock.
