Aodh Ollbharr Ó CarthaighÓ Carthaigh (Aodh Ollbharr)
(fl. 12th or 15th century?)
Irish poet about whom little is known. A poem on the rights of Mac Diarmada of Magh Luirg, beg. A-tá sonn sochar na ríogh, is attributed to him, with the description ollamh of Crúachan, as is one beg. Tosach féile fairsinge, addressed to Tomaltach Mac Diarmada, although the latter may actually be the work of Torna Ó Maoil Chonaire. The evidence, slight as it is, might place him in 15th-century(?) Connacht and point to affiliations with the Meic Dhiarmada. An older suggestion is that he is to be identified with an earlier poet, the Aed ua Carthaig to whom the dinnshenchas poem on Mide is attributed in the Book of Leinster. This would fit in with the annnalistic evidence for Uí Carthaig ollamha of Connacht in the 11th and 12th centuries.
