Conn Bacach O'Neill, the lord of Tyrone from 1519 until his death in 1559, was a powerful Gaelic Irish chieftain who re-established the primacy of the O'Neill family in Gaelic Ulster and was created first earl of Tyrone by the English king, Henry VIII, in 1542. In his obituary in the Annals of the Four Masters, Conn Bacach O'Neill was stated to have 'spent his age and time without blemish or reproach'.
