Introduction

Lord Seamus na Coille Aosda:

Aka: Seamus a Chnuic Ghuirm (registered name).


A founding (1970s) member of the Shire of Vinland (a predecessor to Endewearde in central & eastern Maine) and a member of Clan Cnoc Gorm , a household of Vinland. In 1979 Seamus moved to An Tir where he was a founding member of the Shire of Evercleare (1981), now the Barony of Glymm Mere [1], where he was a member of the household of Sir Richard Fergus Fitzalan [2], first Baron Glymm Mere.
