    Baronies of Tipperary: The O'Maoilriain (O'Mulryan or O'Ryan) were cited as chiefs of 'Owney Mulryan' which included both Owney and Owneybeg.
    Origin and Meaning:
    The Ryans claim descent from the second-century King of Leinster, Cathaoir Mór. The name Ryan is thought to mean ?illustrious?. This name came from an ancestor called Maoilriain which means ?follower of Riain?who settled in Tipperary in the 13th century. The personal name Rian is most likely a diminutive of Rí meaning a ?king?.
    Development and History:
    The Ryans branched out into several septs located in counties Carlow, Wexford, Tipperary and Limerick. The Ryans are not recorded much until the 17th century when Cornelius O Mulryan who was a brother of the Chief of Owney was a Franciscan friar. Ryan should be distinguished from ó Riain which means ?descendant of Riaghan or Rian?.
