An essential guide to the origins of 200 Irish Families 1 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A beautifully illustrated and well written guide to the origins of the 200 most popular surnames in Ireland.
Also included is history of the Irish race in all it's forms, this alone is worth the price of the book as it will allow anyone to form a clear understanding of Irish history, cutting away all the myths and confusions that surround the Irish and their origins.
This book is an essential read for anyone with Irish ancestry or any one with an interest in Irish History and you will find yourself dipping into it again and again.

good and clear guide to the irish and their origins 28 Feb. 2000
By moonstealer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
i got this as a gift for my husband (a Reilly) and congratulate myself on the purchase! The historical background is EXCELLENT - enabled me to understand the different ethnic roots of the Irish and also the complexity of the Catholics vs Protestants, etc. In addition, the description of the mass exodus of the Irish to foreign lands was great, the author detailing the emotional background exquisitely. Finally, it was a lot of fun looking up the origins of Irish last names. The crests of each clan is shown in colour.
If I have a complaint, it would be that the significance of the crest of each clan was not discussed along with the origin and history of each clan. If that was included, this book would be 100% perfect, instead of 95% perfect.

Very nice book. 30 Dec. 2011
By Michael O'Malley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is a nice, medium sized hard bound copy filled with superb illustrations and makes for fascinating reading. My only complaint is how did the O'Malley (Ó Máille) family didn't make it into the book. Sure, maybe I'm biased, but the O'Malley's certainly are big enough and popular enough to rate a place within. Grace O'Malley would be shocked.
