In the KIERNAN pedigree, that descended from Cairbre an-Daimh-Airgid, King of Orgiall of the O'Hart pedigree, there was a Tighearna ("a lord, an owner") , from whom descended O'Tighearnaighe, anglicised TIERNEY.
In the TIERNEY of Ulster pedigree there was another Tighearna, that branched off the O'Neill No.1 of Tyrone pedigree.
