Corcomroe was one of five ancient divisions into which the County of Clare was divided. The four others were: Corcovaskin whose chiefs were of the O’Donnells and McMahons Ui-Cormaic was inhabited by the tribes of the O’Hehirs Ui-Fearmaic was the territory corresponding to the barony of Inchiquin and inhabited by the ODeas and the O’Quinns Ui-Caisin or Clancuilen was occupied by the powerful clan of the MacNamaras including the baronies of upper and lower Bunratty.Some say Liscannor takes its name from the old castle beside the local National School; “Lis” meaning a “fort” and “Cannor” a corruption of the name “Connor”. Others say that it is derived from “Lis”, a “fort”, “cean” a “head or headland” and “or” (uir) meaning “slaughter”.
