European History/Irish clan chiefs


What did Irish clan chiefs do?

Hi Charles,

Clan chiefs were the heads of their family. As such, they were responsible for relations among the people in the clan, for making decisions that affected the clan as a whole, and for managing relations with other clans or outside individuals. A clan chief was a tribal leader with the greatest individual influence.

I hope this is helpful!
