"The Barrys were amongst the earliest Anglo-Norman settlers in Ireland, and have held large possessions in the county of Cork ever since the reign of Henry II. They had immense possessions, and their chief seat, Castle Lyons, vied in splendor with the most celebrated mansions in the South of Ireland. Their early residences at Barryscourt and Buttevant were also extensive and strong. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
