On behalf of our Patron Lt. Col. Charles Artaud Byrne and all at Finte O’Broin, I would like to wish Terry Byrne and his family, the Byrne Clann of Essex County, Ontario, Canada the very best of luck as they celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of their ancestor Michael Byrne of Castlebar in Co. Mayo.
Michael is Terry’s great, great, grandfather who left his home in Mayo during the famine years.
It is wonderful to see that the Byrnes of Essex County maintain their Irisih identity and rich history with such pride and we are sure that their family celebrations today will help to pass that history on to future generations.
With all our good wishes,
Certavi et Vici,
Derek Byrne – O’Byrne of Downes,
