The Hynes of Ireland by JP Hynes, This book is a short history of the battles, murders, duels, conflicts, love stories, poems, castles,
monasteries and miracles involving the ancient Hynes family and their kinsfolk, the other descendants of King Guaire, the O'Shaughnessys,
O'Clearys, O'Cahans, O'Cahills and Killikellys. More info / buy online at http://www.localbooks.ie/shop/product_info.php?products_id=7046

The O'Shaughnessys by JP Hynes. (a great Gort /Kinvara family)
The name O'Shaughnessy is easily recognisable as a quintessentially Irish name whereas the surname of its lineal cousins, Hynes, the
anglicised rendition of Ui hEidhne, looks more Saxon than Gaelic. The name O 'Cleary is also obviously Irish as indeed it is because that
family shares the same ancestry as the Hynes and O'Shaughnessy and has the added distinction of being one of the earliest recorded
hereditary names. This book, The O'Shaughnessys, is a companion book to The Hynes of Ireland so ideally it should be read shortly after
the other because the two families share their earliest ancestors and history. Where most of the narrative of The Hynes of Ireland
centres on the seaside town of Kinvara, on the edge of Galway Bay, Ireland, The O'Shaughnessys centres on the market town of Gort, a few
miles inland. email email@example.com
