Feagh Mac Hugh O’Byrne anniversary marks a new birth in an ancient Byrne line

Today marks the anniversary of the capture and execution of Feagh Mac Hugh O’Byrne at Ballinacor in Wicklow on the 8th of May 1597.

Clan O’Byrne of Downes, Cloncurry and Kilcock also welcomed a new addiction to the family on this historic date with the birth of a grandson for Edward Byrne Jnr.

Lewis (Louis), Edward Byrne-Coakley was born on the morning of Thursday the 8th of May 2014 connecting him directly with his famous ancestor.

No doubt, the proud grandfather will take great joy in passing on stories of Feagh Mach Hugh O’Byrne and other Byrne ancestors to young Lewis as he grows up.
