O Byrne - Irish / Ua Broin / Ui Bhriain / Ui Birn / Ui Beirne - Bran (raven). Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb Ui Dunlainge  Ui Faelain Crioch Branach Sept / Family branch, who are descended from 94.Dunlaing who was a Prince of Leinster Province descended from 84.Cu Corb the direct male line ancestor of the Kings of Leinster. He in turn was descended from *59.Ugaine - the Great and his son *60.Leary / Laoghaire who were both Heremonian Kings of Tara / Erinn and descendants of *37.Eremon. They were more directly descended from the Crioch Branach Sept through 109.Bran the 47th King of Leinster in the early 11th Century AD, who was deposed in 1018 AD. After they were driven out of Co. Kildare in Central Southern Leinster by the invading Anglo - Norman English in the early 13th Century AD they settled into Maoiliura’s Valley / Glenmalure in the south of the Co. Wicklow mountains in the south - east of Southern Leinster, where they were also Chiefs and Kings. It remained their stronghold until the early 17th Century AD when their Chief was killed by the English and their territory there was also taken over. This included the Vale of Glendalough and the Sugar Loaf Mountains, Enniskerry and Dargle near Bray. Later on the English Earl Powerscourt was granted the 26,000 acres there by the Stuart French English King, James 1st. Originally the Anglo - Normans under de La Poer, the ancestor of the Powers, who came with Strongbow / Richard de Clare, during the Anglo Norman Invasion, had originally taken it from the Irish Families there. Much to their great credit the "ferocious" Ui Dunlaing O Byrnes and their kinsmen, the O Tooles were able to retake it even during Henry VIII’s reign. The English later once again confiscated it after they killed the O Byrne Chief, and it was then given to the Talbots until 1608 AD. James 1st the Stuart English King then gave it all to Sir Richard Wingfield who he created Lord Powerscourt in 1618 AD. See also Mac Brinn, Burns, Beirne and Byron.
