O’Byrne of Downes, Cloncurry and Kilcock

“The O’Byrnes of Portrushin may well be the ancestors of various Byrne families in adjoining parts of counties Kildare and Carlow. It could well be that they had descendants at Cloncurry, Kilcock, Naas, Prosperous, Clane and Caragh. If this is indeed the case then these families belong to the O’Byrnes of the Downes”.
