Mabh O'Neill's Camogie Club was founded in 1919. Little is known of its early years, but from 1940 the club participated in the Newry and District Camogie League, reaching the final in 1943. In 1941 it reached the final of the Armagh Camogie Championship, and in 1943 the South Armagh divisional final.

The O'Neill ravaged the Pale, failed in an attempt on Dundalk, made a truce with the MacDonnells, and sought help from the Earl of Desmond. The English invaded Donegal and restored O'Donnell. This victory greatly strengthened Shane O'Neill's position, and Sir Henry Sidney, who became lord deputy in 1565, declared to the earl of Leicester that "Lucifer himself was not more puffed up with pride and ambition than O'Neill".

There were at this time three powerful contemporary members of the ONeill family in IrelandShane, Turlough, and Hugh, 2nd Earl of Tyrone. Elizabeth at last authorized Sussex to take the field against Shane, but two expeditions failed. Turlough had schemed to supplant Shane during Shanes absence in London. Shane then laid the whole blame for his lawless conduct on the lord deputys repeated alleged attempts on his life. Elizabeth consented to negotiate, and practically all Shanes demands were conceded. The feud did not long survive Shanes return to Ireland, where he reestablished his authority and renewed his turbulent tribal warfare.

He allied himself instead with the MacDonnells, the most powerful of these immigrants. Shane, however, refused to put himself in the power of Sussex without a guarantee for his safety; and his claims were so exacting that Elizabeth determined to restore Brian. An attempt to incite the ODonnells against him, however, was frustrated. Shane, the eldest legitimate son of Conn ONeill, was a chieftain whose support the English considered worth gaining; but he rejected overtures from the Earl of Sussex, the lord deputy, and refused to help the English against the Scottish settlers on the coast of Antrim. Nevertheless, Queen Elizabeth I of England was disposed to come to terms with Shane, who after his fathers death was de facto chief of the ONeill clan. She recognized his claims to the chieftainship, thus throwing over a kinsman, Brian ONeill.

Arthur and Dan Gibson went on to represent County Antrim. It is situated in the outskirts of Glenarm village in Feystown and has over 100 members. Antrim GAA has a Gaelic football club named in his honour, Shane O'Neill's GFC, founded by the solicitor and antiquarian Francis Joseph Bigger. Shane O'Neill's hurling club was the first official GAA club in Glenarm, founded in 1903 using land donated by the Gibson family of the Libbert, Glenarm. There is also a Shane O'Neill's GAC in Camloch, County Armagh.

All Shane's marriages were of this type. His first wife was Catherine, the daughter of James MacDonald of Dunnyveg, Lord of the Isles. The O'Neill married Catherine while the MacDonnells were providing him with military support during the 1550s to contest the Lordship of Tyrone with his father Conn Bacach, at the time The O'Neill. If the alliance fell apart, the wife could return to her father in a form of political divorce. The custom among the nobility of sixteenth-century Ireland was for marriage to be undertaken to cement political alliances between powerful or enemy families.

J. The nickname "Shane the Proud" (Irish: Sen an Domais), which appears in nineteenth and early twentieth century popular histories, was coined some time after his death by English writers, and originally had the pejorative meaning of "arrogant", because they wished to portray him as vain, self-indulgent and ruthless, and thus undermine the legitimacy of his claim to the earldom of Tyrone.[6]Holinshed's Chronicles of 1587, for instance, had a side-note, "The proud taunts of Shane O'neile", the text remarking that "when the commissioners were sent to intreat with him vpon sundrie points, they found him most arrogant & out of all good order, braieng out speches not met nor semelie."[7] Later Irish writers, such as John Mitchel and P.

The name "Shane" is an anglicisation of the Gaelic name "Sen" (John). Shane's name is given in the Annals of the Four Masters (at M1567.2) as "Sean mac Cuinn, mic Cuinn mic Enri, mic Eocchain" ("John son of Conn, son of Conn, son of Henry, son of Eoin")[1] Elsewhere in the Annals (e.g. at M1552.7) he is referred to as "Sean Donngaileach Neill".[2] This refers to the fact that as a youth he was fostered by his cousins, the O'Donnelly Clan, of which the Chief was Marshal of the O'Neill forces.[3] This was rendered as anglicisations such as "Donnolloh" in contemporary manuscripts,[4] and as "John, or Shane Doulenagh O'Neil" in Abb MacGeoghegan's 1758 History of Ireland.[5] After he assumed the leadership of the O'Neills, he was referred to simply as " Nill" ("The O'Neill").

There, by premeditated treachery or in a sudden brawl, he was slain by the MacDonnells. The English invaded Donegal and restored ODonnell. This victory strengthened Shane ONeills position, but the English made preparations for his subjugation. Attended by a small body of retainers and taking his prisoner Sorley Boy with him, he presented himself among the MacDonnells near Cushendun, on the Antrim coast. Shane then turned his hand against the MacDonnells, claiming that he was serving the Queen of England in harrying the Scots. He fought an indecisive battle with Sorley Boy MacDonnell near Coleraine in 1564, and in 1565 he routed the MacDonnells and took Sorley Boy prisoner near Ballycastle. ONeill was routed by the ODonnells at Letterkenny; and seeking safety in flight, he threw himself on the mercy of his enemies, the MacDonnells.

The O'Neill offered some concessions, most significantly consenting to present himself before Elizabeth in London to argue his case against Sussex and the Baron of Dungannon in person. Elizabeth consented to treat, and hostilities ceased on terms that gave the O'Neill practically all his demands. The O'Neill requested the hand of Sussex's half-sister Lady Frances Radclyffe in marriage as an earnest of future friendship. Accompanied by the Earls of Ormonde and Kildare as surety for his safety, the O'Neill reached London on 4 January 1562. William Camden describes the wonder which his gallowglasses occasioned in the English capital, with their heads bare, their long hair falling over their shoulders and clipped short in front above the eyes, and clothed in saffron-dyed shirts of fine linen.
