Hi Anne :

I am a relation of John Francis O'Neill Letaigne through the O'Neills. My great-grandfather Charles O'Neill Conroy, K.C. O.B.E. was the only child of Elizabeth, who was the only child of Charles Henry O'Neill, The O'Neill of Clanaboy in the time of John Letaigne.

We descend from Hugh Oge O'Neill, while the O'Neill Letaignes through his brother Owen. Their father was Con mac Brian O'Neill, brother of Shane of Shanescastle, and their mother was a daughter of Sir Arthur Magennis and his wife Sorcha O'Neill, who was a daughter of the Great Hugh O'Neill of Tyrone.

Some good information about their family is available in Burke's Peerage here :
