Clan O'Byrne of Leinster AD400-1700 by Paul J. Burns

Book Description

A historical account of the fifth largest family distilled from all available sources. The clan is associated with the Wicklow Mountains, where it retained its Celtic identity and harassed the English settlers of "the Pale" long after most tribes had been suppressed. As late as 1578, Dunlang was inaugurated as "the O'Byrne" in the age-old manner, and it was not until April 1601 that Phelim MacFeagh O'Byrne submitted to the new order. The book consists of eight brief chapters, of which the first is devoted to "The First Millennium", subsequent chapters cover each succeeding century, finishing with the 17th century. There are footnotes and a selected bibliography. Separate appendices deal with "other origins of the name Byrne or Burns" and two women called "Gormlaith", who have a particular significance. Illustrations include an extract from an early map by John Norden and a reduced facsimile taken from a work by Reverend P.L. O'Toole, "The Genealogy of the Ui Faelan (The Clan O'Byrne)".
