— ‘Footwashing’

From a damp floor to a new vision‘. Some time ago the Pope made headlines by washing the feet of some women and some Muslims. Many people thought this was a great idea – but were not quite sure why – while many conservative Catholics were shocked and implied that he had done something without parallel!  I tried to bring some background – and some old-fashioned historical theology – to the debate in an article I published in the leading English language journal on liturgy, known as WORSHIP, just before Easter. The article has generated quite a stir. So I thought that you, as fellow members of the Ui Lochlainn clan, might like to read it> O’Loughlin T Footwashing

White, Patrick. History of Clare and The Dalcassian Clans of Tipperary, Limerick and Galway. Dublin (1893)

Woulfe, Patrick Rev. (taken from Irish Names and Surnames) 1923
Ó LOCHLAINN—IIO Loghlan, O Laghlan, O’Loughlan, O’Loughlin, O’Loghlen, Loghlin, Loughlan, Loughlen, Loughlin, Laughlin, &c.; ‘descendant of Lochlainn’; the name (1) of a leading family of Cinel Eoghain, more commonly called Mac Lochlainn, which see; and (2) of an ancient and distinguished family in County Clare, who took their name from Lochlainn, Lord of Corcomroe, in the 10th century. The O’Loghlins and O’Connors originally formed one clan, and ruled over a district co-extensive with the diocese of Kilfenora. This district, which was called Corcomroe from the clan-name of its inhabitants, the Corca Modhruaidh, was afterwards divided into two nearly equal parts between the two families, O’Loghlen ruling over East Corcomroe, which was also called Burren, and O’Connor over West Corcomroe. The O’Loghlens were a powerful family, and retained their rank as Lords of Burren down to the reign of Elizabeth. They are still numerous and respectable in Thomond.
