Now that I've gotten home from work and have access to OCM, I see that 
the citation is for "Conchobar mac Taidg, who died in 882, is ancestor 
of the O Connors of Connacht..."  The header is Conchobar: Conchobar, 
Conchu/r, with a pronunciation of kru-hur' (?).  (I suspect that's an 
error in my edition and it should be kun-hur'.)  The spelling before the 
colon is the early Irish form, and the spellings after the modern forms.
