Finte O’Broin, the International Society of Byrne Clans was established in July 2011 and launched at St. Catherine’s church in Dublin 8 by the late Lt. Col. Charles Artaud Byrne, best claim hereditary Chief of the Byrne’s of Crioch Brannach.
Since its launch, Finte O’Broin has been involved with the establishment of the highly successful Napoleon Society of Ireland and has forged links with the Emmet and Develin Societies.
We have also raised tens of thousands of euros for charitable causes, most notably, MS Ireland with our annual canal walks. This year’s walk will take place on the 28th of August and further details will be posted on the website very soon.
For now, we would like to thank all of those people who have contacted us over our first ten years. All those people who have shared their family history. Everyone who has joined the Byrne DNA project and everyone who has supported us in making Finte O’Broin one of the most vibrant clan societies in Ireland today.
Here’s to the next ten years!
Certavi et Vici,
Derek Byrne, O’Byrne’s of Downes
President of Finte O’Broin
