Ó MURCHADHA, Diarmuid. Family Names of County Cork.


1 in stock

With maps and illustrations. Dublin: Glendale, 1985. Octavo. pp. xii, 332. Purple papered boards, title in gilt on spine. A very good copy in dust jacket. [L1 2C]

This work deals with the origins of fifty of the best-known surnames of County Cork and traces their early history down to 1700. Many of the families featured never had their story related in detail before now; particulars of others are accessible only in books long out of print or in learned journals not readily available to the public. Each name is treated in a separate article. Special attention is given to the location of early family seats, such as castles, parishes and townlands occupied by or associated with the various families throughout the county.
