    The only son of Donal V and came to the throne of Desmond in 1390.  None of the other members of the royal derbhfine challenged his title.  As Tadgh had no brothers, and his immediate cousins, the lords of Muskerry, Coshmang, Ardconaghty, and Ardtully, had already been provided with great appanages, none of the princes of the dynasty desputed his claims.  Tadgh II had three sons.  The eldest, Donal VI succeeded him and was ancestor of that branch of the royal house which was extinguished for want of legitimate heirs on the death of Donal IX MacCarthy Mór in 1596.  Tadgh's second son, Cormac received the lordship of Kerslawny and was ancestor of that branch of the dynasty which eventually succeeded to the chieftainship of the royal house.  The third son, Dermod, died without issue.  Tadgh II died in 1428.  The Annals of Inisfallen state that: "Tadc MacCarthaigh .... reigned thirty-eight years, and of the foreigners and the Gaedil of his time he was the best, the greatest, .... and the most reputed for drinking wine.  He died in his castle of Baile UÍ Chairpri and was buried in the same monastery."
    Or died 1413.
