    Age 1

    Great Catholic-Gaelic rebellion for return of lands, later joined by Old English Catholics in Ireland. Under leadership of Irish chieftain, Rory O'More, conspiracy was formed to seize Dublin and expel the English. English settlers were driven out of Ulster. Catholics hold 59% of land in Ireland.


    Age 9

    The Protestant Lord Protector of England, Oliver Cromwell, landed at Dublin. His troops killed 2,000 men. A great part of lands in Munster, Leinster and Ulster (Drogheda and Wexford) was confiscated and divided among the English soldiers.

    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Aileen, James Patrick, Kieran.

    Welsh (Pembrokeshire): habitational name from any of various minor places in Wales, in particular one near Pembroke with a major castle, named from Welsh caer ‘fort’ + rhiw ‘hill, slope’. The surname was taken to Ireland soon after the Norman invasion of England and was Gaelicized as de Carrún. In the 16th century a family called Carew from Devon played an important part in establishing the Tudor administration in Ireland.

    Cornish (Somerset and Devon): from the cognate Cornish word kerrow (plural of ker ‘fort’), which occurs seven times as a placename in Cornwall.
