Ó Kelly folklore has it that Teigh died ﬁghting like a wolf dog and a green coloured creature came from the sea to protect his body from being mutilated as was the practice at the time. This composite animal had the head of a fox, the chest of an elephant, the mane of a horse, the forelegs of an eagle, the body and hind legs of a hound and the tail of a lion.
The Enﬁeld has been incorporated in most Ó Kelly family crests, as can be seen on Colla Ó Ceallaigh’s grave stone (below).
Cola Ó Kelly of Aughrane d. c. 1614. He commanded a Regt. of Foot
on the English side at the Battle of Kinsale 1601. His gravestone in
Kilconnell Abbey shows the Ó Kelly enﬁeld. It is suggested he was on
‘good’ terms with the English monarchy.
