Tadgh O'Carroll married twice and the deaths of his wives were considered worthy of annalistic records. Both marriages were likely to have been political alliances. His first wife, Joan Butler, daughter of the Earl of Ormond, and therefore of Norman background, died of the plague in 1383.
Lady Joan Butler married Teige O Carroll, Lord of Ely O Carroll (1380-1407) who commissioned the shrine for the "Book of Dimma" which is now in Trinity College. Teige and 800 of his army were killed by the English at Callan in 1407. They left, with other issue, Margaret.
