Richard Óge Burke, 7th lord of Clanricarde, died 1519.

Life

Richard Óge was a son of a previous lord, Ulick Ruadh, and a brother of Ulick Fionn Burke. His son, Sir Uilleag Burke, would become Clanricarde in disputed circumstances in 1544. No other Burke of his line would again rise to overall leadership of the Burkes, but he was ancestor to the Burke family of Derrymaclachtna Castle, Lackagh, County Galway, who were an important branch of the family.
