the invasion of Cromwell, the family of
O'Broin, O' Byrne or O' Birne, was amongst
the most powerful and distinguished in the
province of Leinster. It traces its descent
from Hermon, the youngest son of Milesius,
through Ugane More and Cathire More,
two of the most renowned warriors that
swayed the Irish sceptre.

The O' Byrnes derive their name from
Broin or Bran, one of the Kings of Lein-
ster, who defeated the Mononians in a pitched
battle, and redeemed Leinster from a tax,
called Borne or Boiromhe. Many other
progenitors of the O' Byrnes, being likewise
Kings of Leinster, distinguished themselves
in the wars concerning this tax and against the
common enemy, the Dane. Of the English,
the O' Byrnes were at once the most con-
stant and formidable enemies. Located upon
their mountain heights in the wild and sin-
gularly beautiful country, which owned their
sway, they could watch their opportunity,
and at the favourable moment pounce down
upon their victims, like the eagle on his
prey. Thus on Easter Monday, in the year
1209, they fell upon an immense crowd of
Dublin citizens who were celebrating a rural
fete, at a place called Cullens Wood, and with
the aid of the O' Tooles, another potent tribe
seated in their immediate neighbourhood, left
three hundred dead upon the spot. Hence-
forward over a space of several centuries
we find the O'Byrnes never relaxing in their
resistance and" hostility to the English

settlers. In 1395 Roger Mortimer, Earl of
March, then Lord Deputy of Ireland, laid
O'Byrne's country waste, and stormed his
Castle of Wicklow. In 1414 John Talbot,
Lord Furnival, marched an army through
the territories of the O'Byrnes, and numer-
ous and frequent were the forces which sub-
sequent Viceroys found it necessary to
oppose to these bold and restless chieftains.
When the civil contentions in Ireland for
the Jirst time assumed a religious character,
the House of O' Byrne acted a most promi-
nent part, and in the confederacy which was
formed in defence of the ancient faith, the
leaders were the Earl of Desmond, Fiach
Mac Hugh O' Byrne, chief of that family,
James Eustace, Viscount Baltinglass, and
one of the Fitzgeralds. The contending
armies met in the defiles of Glendalough,
where, after a fierce and bloody engagement,
the English were routed in all points ; their
infantry, to the amount of 800 men cut to
pieces, and the Lord Deputy, Arthur Grey,
Lord Wilton, with the greater portion of the
cavalry driven from the field of battle. The
leaguers, however, do not seem to have
derived any considerable advantage from
their victory : perhaps from the constitution
of their army it was not in their power.
The Irish, like the Scottish Highlanders,
followed their chiefs cheerfully to battle,
but the blow being struck, the pressing
danger or exciting cause, which had led
them forth, having passed away, it was im-
possible to keep them in the field : they
never could be induced to perform the duties
of a regular campaign. This it was, which
rendered futile all the victories of the Des-
monds, O'Neills, and O' Byrnes.

In 1588, when O'Neill, earl of Tyrone,
raised his standard, he was joined by the
principal catholic chiefs, and amongst the
rest, by the head of the O'Byrnes, which
daring sept, in the long and sanguinary
contests that ensued, bore a most conspicu-
ous part.

On the accession of James to the throne,
in 1603, all Ireland, for the first time, sub-
mitted to the English rule. The great



northern chiefs, in common with tlie rest of
the ancient Irish nohility, did homage ;
many passing over to England to render
the service in person. They were well
received, but within a brief period, trea-
chery accomplished against them, that which
force could never effect. Hugh O'Neill,
O'Donnell, and many others were compelled
to leave Ireland, as banished men ; and
their broad and fertile lands were conferred
upon mercantile companies and ignoble
mechanics. The O'Byrnes, amongst the
rest, suffered severely. All that remained
to them was afterwards seized upon by
Cromwell, during his devastating progress
through their country in 1646, and the his-
tory of the O'Byrnes, as chiefs of numerous I
and powerful tribes, is no longer interwoven ]
with the annals of their country.

Charles O'Byrne, representative of the
great house of O'Byrne, who was deprived
by Cromwell of his extensive domains,
espoused Grizel, daughter of Byrne, of
Ballincurbeg, and had three sons and a
