From the Author The following is taken from the introduction to this work : "The idea for this surname book came to me in 1992 in Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo, Ireland. The occasion was my Uncle's concert at the Augustinian Abbey. There had been interest in how those of us from England related to families in Ireland, and how our surnames came to be spelt differently. There was talk of doing a family tree, but to me the mystery was what had been the meaning of my surname O' Cnaimhsighe and why had it been translated or pseudo translated - into English as Bonner. I had always been interested in Ireland and Irish names. I knew Irish accents and I also knew standard English and the village dialects around where I lived in Lancashire. This gave me an interest in languages and dialects generally. As someone with a background in geography and town planning, I thought a map of the distribution of the surnames derived from O Cnaimhsighe might throw more light on the subject tjam trying to work on a family tree for our own variant. (You can learn more about the author at the Irish Roots Cafe here at

The Distribution of Families My purpose is to enumerate families with particular surnames within Ireland and to present maps of the distribution of the names....The maps were produced individually. The commentary with each map is self-contained.....I hope my maps and data add value to the information Woulfe and MacLysaght provided on individual names. The fact that many names have been mapped means that some common features have become apparent that would have been less obvious to them. I have discussed these observations" (in the following pages), end of excerpt.

The Final Word This book gives the origins, locations and history of Irish Families. 216 pages, 200 individual families each have their own map, giving locations across Ireland, along with family history from the author, Edward Neafsey, 6 x 9, softbound. ISBN: 0-940134-97-7 .
