    Cormac was the son of Donal IV and brother of Dermod III. On the death of Dermod III in 1326, Cormac VI was proclaimed king by the nobles of Desmond. He succeeded to the throne by tanistry and not primogeniture for his brother (Dermod III) was survived by at least one son, Fingin, ancestor of the the MacFinnian MacCarthys of Ardtully.
    Cormac provided for his younger sons during his own lifetime, by bestowing upon them the great lordships of Muskerry, Coshmang, and Ardconaghty. It is probable that in granting them these appanages he hoped to discourage them from contesting the accession of his eldest son Donal Oge.  Cormac died in 1359 and was buried "in the monastery of the Friars at Cork."
