    "Donald A Bruno Son to Ocaan Prince of Farmonach in the Countie of Derrie upon the Ro water in Ireland came to Scotland in 1025 to the assistance of King Malcom the 2nd in his war against the Danes, for which he got these lands he first acquired and which he called after his own name Ferrindonald erected to a Baronie to be called Barony of Foulis from a place near to (?Loch feoulen) in Ireland so termed he dyed AD 1039.
    The O'Cathains were a leading family in Derry; to explain the name Farmonach - which has no geographical relevance to Loch Foyle or the River Roe - it has been pointed out that they belonged to a kin group known as Fir Maige Itha which might become corrupted in transmission through written sources into a more familiar geographical name (D.H. Kelley in American Genealogist xlv 66-7).
