The modern town of Letterkenny began as a market town at the beginning of the 17th century, during the Plantation of Ulster. It may have formed on the site of a previous Gaelic settlement. It was the first border crossing in the River Swilly. In the recent past, Letterkenny was a largely agricultural town, surrounded by large cattle and sheep grazing on former untilled slope – at a time when Conwal (3 km west of the letter) was the ecclesiastical center and port. The water in the Atlantic had not yet withdrawn from the basin of the Swilly, the mouth of which at the time extended up almost as far as New Mills – evidence of this can be found in the alluvial flat land between Oldtown and Port Road.
Rory O’Cannon, the last governor of O’Cannon Clan, was killed in 1248. Godfrey O’Donnell succeeded Rory O’Cannon as King of Tír Conaill. He engaged Norman lord Maurice FitzGerald, 2 Lord of Offaly, in the battle of Credan in the north in what is now County Sligo in 1257 where both were badly damaged – Fitzgerald immediately fatally so. Godfrey (also dies of his wounds) retreated to a Crannog on Lough Beag (Gartan Lake). O’Neill of Tyrone – take advantage of Godfrey’s fatal illness – demanded submission, hostages and promises from Cenél Conaill because they had no strong chieftain then hurt by Godfrey. Godfrey summoned his forces and led them himself, even though he had to be carried on a litter (stretcher). O’Neill and his men were completely defeated by the Swilly in 1258. Godfrey died, however, after the battle near the town of Letterkenny, where is today. He was buried in the cemetery Conwal. A flat cross-shaped coffin marks his grave today.
