Richard Mór Burke
Ricarde Mor Burke, 9th lord of Clanricarde, died 1530.
Burke was the second son of Ulick Fionn Burke, 6th Clanricarde, and Slaine Ni Con Mara (Slany MacNamara), succeeding in 1519 upon the death of his brother, Ulick Óge Burke. He married Margaret Butler, daughter to Piers Butler, 8th Earl of Ormond (Ireland). In 1522 he was part of a confederation of Connacht forces that marched to Sligo to give battle to the O'Donnells, who were conquering north Connacht. However, the expedition fell apart without a fight after the failure of Conn Bacach O'Neill to defeat O'Donnell. He was succeeded by his uncle's grandson, John mac Richard Mór Burke, who ruled till 1536.
