ByrneByrn or O'Byrne together with its variants Be(i)rne and Byrnes is one of the ten most frequent surnames in Ireland today. In the original Irish the name is O'Broin from the personal name Branmeaning Raven. It is traced back to King Bran of Leinster who ruled in the eleventh century. As a result of the Norman invasion the O'Byrnes were driven from their original homeland in Co. Kildare into the south Co.Wicklow in the early thirteenth century. There they grew in importance over the years retaining control of the territory until the early seventeenth despite repeated attempts by the English authorities to dislodge them. Even today the vast majority of the Irish who bear the name originate in Wicklow or the surrounding counties.
