Janet has said:
The sons of the daughters could be
chiefs and could become kings in Ireland, particularly in Munster.
I fear we will continue to disagree on this point. The daughters are not
mention in genealogical records precisely because their progeny would not
have been eligible for consideration by the Derbfine when choosing a chief.
I'm not suggesting that there were no Picts/Cruithin in Ireland. While it's
not impossible that a Pictish tribe in Ireland may have followed a
matrilineal descent, I would certainly be interested in having examples of
tribes that took their name from a daughter.
