Ó Cléirigh: Cleary, Clarke: an-líonmhar sa tír: tá Clarke i dtuaisceart Laighean & Connachta. Tháinigh na Cléirigh ó Chléireach de shliocht Ghuaire an Oinigh & bhain siad le Cill Mac Duach nó Aidhne i ndeisceart na Gaillimhe. Scaipeadh iad sa 13 céad agus fuair cuid acu dídean i dTír Conaill mar scríobhaithe ag na Domhnallaigh. Is mar sin a bhí siad páirteach in Annála Ríocht Éireann. Tháinig an sloinne i bhfeidhm i lár an 10 céad - an ceann ba luaithe sa tír, ceaptar. Tá an sloinne Sasanach Clarke ann, leis, ach tuairimíonn Mac Giolla Iasachta gur lú iad ná na cinn dúchasacha.IF.
