Countyvise & Birkenhead Press
This book is a short history of the battles, murders, duels, conflicts, love stories, poems, castles, monasteries and miracles involving the ancient Hynes family and their kinsfolk, the other descendants of King Guaire, the O'Shaughnessys, O'Clearys, O'Cahans, O'Cahills and Killikellys.
Their ancient friends and foes are mentioned too: among them - the Berminghams, Burkes, De Lacys, Fitzgeralds, Gregorys, Martins, MacDermots, MacFirbis's, MacNamaras, O'Briens, O'Connors, O'Donnells, O'Dowds, O' Flahertys, O'Kellys, O'Loughlins, O'Moghans and O'Neills. Researchers into family history will find a wealth of intriguing information about these families which has hitherto been hidden away in obscure papers and documents.
