I don't know who appointed them, or what the method of succession
was, but his successors were mostly from the O Neill's for quite
some time.
 
It's a funny sort of thing to be happening; but unfortunately there is no
history of the clan during this period (the analogy of the Borgias or the
Hapsburgs springs to mind) that would explain what the O Neills
were up to or how they worked.
