'''Ollamh Síl Muireadaigh''' was a hereditary post, held almost exclusively by members of the [[Ó Maolconaire|Ó Maolconaire]] family, from at least the 13th to the 17th century.
'''Ollamh Síl Muireadaigh''' was a hereditary post, held almost exclusively by members of the [[Ó Maolconaire]] family, from at latest the 13th century until the 17th century. The [[Síol Muireadaigh]] were a dynasty of regional clans, named after King [[Muiredach Muillethan]] of [[Connacht]] (died 702), all of whom lived in north-central [[Connacht]]. While many of the ruling chieftains such as the [[Ó Conchubhair Donn]], [[Ó Conchubhair Ruadh]], [[Mac Diarmata]], and [[Ó Flannagain]] were descendants of this [[Muiredach Muillethan]], the [[Ó Maolconaire]]s are of Laiginian, or mythically of Tuatha Dé Dannan stock, although their Milesian pedigrees claim differently. The Laiginians arrived in Connacht in the 3rd century AD from Leinster, conquering the ruling Fir Bolg and Fomorians, and ruling until conquered by the Gael under the Connachta in the 5th century.
 
   
An [[ollamh]] was the highest rank in the learned orders of law, poetry, or history. These educated professionals, today grouped together in the popular consciousness as "[[bard]]s", maintained an [[Oral literature|oral tradition]] that pre-dated [[Celtic Christianity|Christianization]] of Ireland.

It is likely that the post had existed for at least as long as the Síl Muireadaigh dynasty themselves, but earlier [[ollamh]]s are unknown. The first of the family so listed was [[Dúinnín Ó Maolconaire]].
