lity of driving out the garrison, and razing the fort. He was killed in a skirmish
kh the forces of the Lord Deputy, in May, 1597, and his head was impaled on Dublin
atle. The family estates were confirmed to his son Felim (or Phelim), by patent of
een Elizabeth, but he was ultimately deprived of them by the perjury and juggling
adventurers under James I. ; and although in 1628 acquitted of all the charges

exemption from the sins and frailties of human nature cannot be claime<
for the O'Byrnes ; but it can be pleaded in extenuation of their error*
that their virtues were many and their sufferings great. Numbers of th
O'Byrnes, in different generations, consecrated themselves to the service c
the Church, at the altar, and in the cloister ; some of them founded abbey
and generously maintained them. Their Faith was as warm in them a
the burning rays of the noonday sud, and as immovable as the base c
" The Golden Spears" which tower high in their beloved Wicklow ; an
proudly it can be proclaimed, that the mother of the great Saint Laurenc
O'Toole was an O'Byrne. At the present day, the descendants of tb
O'Byrne clan are, perhaps, more numerous than those of any other,
all events, they appear to be more concentrated, and to cHng moi
tenaciously to the historic county of their ancestors. The saying that
*' You will find a Byrne in every bush in Wicklow," can be easily unde
stood ; but it is strange and sad to think, that few of them have retaine
the distinctive prefix 0\ No clan has a more rigid right to it. Or
historian alludes to the name of the O'Byrnes as " heroic ;" surely, thi
who bear it should be proud of it, and all the O'Byrnes — those who (
trace their pedigree connectedly, and those who cannot, should keep befoi
their vision the noble example of their martyred forefathers. The oJ
spirit of clanship should bind them firmly together in love for kith and ki
and country. The past glories of our land should urge them to laboi
incessantly for her future greatness. Thank God, she is not now as she wj
in generations gone by, still she is sadly placed in many respects, and h«
children are bound by ties the tenderest, and obligations the most sacre
to make every effort that the precepts of rehgion, the principles of justi
the dictates of honour, and the chastened sympathies of exalted mini
can sanction for her elevation amidst the proudest nations of the eart
Ireland is a country of beauty, fruitfulness, and holiness. The O'Bym
of the past loved her with all the intensity of their impassioned souls,
proof of their faithfulness to God and their country, they hesitated not
pour out their blood in crimson streams. The same sacrifices are not nc
required from their descendants, but the latter should be guided ai
governed by the characteristic instincts of their great race, which won
infallibly teach them, that their first and highest aspiration should be
live and die for God and Ireland.
