Donall O’Fihelly is alleged to have compiled his Annals of Ireland at Rossbrin Castle. The annals tell us that Donall and Maurice O’Fihelly received tuition in advanced Latin by Finghinn O Mathuna. The O’Fihellys were scions of the O’Driscoll race who hailed from Tuatha Ui Fitcheallaigh which embraces the parish of Ardfeild near Clonakilty.

In their early religious lives, both Donall and Maurice O’Fihelly belonged to the Franciscan friary community on Sherkin Island. Donall went to Merton College in Oxford University, and may have returned to be a part of the Franciscan community in Timoleague Friary. Maurice entered the school of Franciscan Studies in Milan in the latter 1480s. He became the head of Franciscan studies in the early 1490s. He held the chair of Scotist philosophy at Padua University between 1494 and 1513.  The eloquence of Maurice in Latin earned him the title of ‘Flos Mundi’, a title that was formally conferred on him by Doge Lorendano of Venice. In Italy, Maurice O’Fihelly wrote under the name of Maurizio Hibernice; Maurice the Irishman.

Some Trinity College Dublin and Other Colleges, West Cork Entries from 1593 to 1860.


Some Trinity College Dublin and Other College West Cork Entries from 1593 to 1860.

This is an early stage of a project that will take time. Many of the records were abstracted by Dr. Albert Casey’s (of Birmingham, Alabama) researchers, possibly in conjunction with Basil O’Connell (Retired head of CID, Burma in the 1950s) in compiling the O’Connell tracts. This tracks all known descendants of Daniel O’Connell.

Because for a large part of the period no Catholic could enter Trinity College around 80% of the population was excluded from the only University on the Island. This must have been a major factor in Ireland’s chronic economic underdevelopment. Modern economics stresses the importance of the development of human capital.

The mechanics to build  railway was by depositing a draft Act of Parliament adn then having it passed.  The background papers woud have financial projections, maps and listing of subscribers who if the project was approved would be called on to invest.  If approved the Company would have powers of Compulsory Purchase.

 

The list give an indication of the scale of wealth in West Cork contrary to common belief.

 

 

The large west Co.Cork town of Skibbereen was first served by rail when the Illen Valley Railway constructed a line from Drimoleague to here in July 1877. The Cork Bandon & South Coast Railway took over the IVR and extended the line south from Skibbereen to reach Baltimore in May 1893, and after which the route was effectively worked as branch from the main line at Drimoleague. In September 1886, the Schull & Skibbereen Tramway built a 3ft gauge line west from here to connect with Schull. The S&ST was the first to close in January 1947, with the Baltimore branch closing along with the rest of the west Cork lines in March 1961.
