An inscription reads Dia le ua nDhuibhne – ‘God be with O’Duin’ – and it is by this style that the Bishop referred to the Earl to whom he dedicated his Gaelic Liturgy of 1567. The fact that it was Duine who gave his name to the clan is a strong argument for his actual existence. 19 We have no details about the original Duine, although at least one genealogy refers to him as Duine Mor – ‘Duine the Great’. He was clearly a man of renown. The name is an interesting one: it is extremely rare, and is not to be found in the Irish annals where one would have expected to find examples.

In the main, this is due to modern writers merely copying the work of others without any critical appraisal, the version repeated depending purely by chance on which source they have come across. There is definite opportunity for confusion, since earlier authorities were by no means unanimous on the question. Douglas in his Peerage of Scotland is typical. ’5 The theory of a Norman descent is based on the claimed existence of a family by name of de Campo Bello, so-called from the Latin for ‘of the Beautiful Plain’.

Hence, it has to be pointed out, a considerable number of Campbells in Ireland have nothing to do with the Campbells in Argyll but come from a totally different stock. The Campbells of Tyrone are supposed to be of this alien descent. This would seem to be a plausible story; it would provide an entirely credible origin for the surname MacCampbell and also tie in with the apparently prevalent use of the name Mac Calein for Campbells who later went to Ireland as mercenaries and who wished to avoid confusion over their antecedents.
