Early Ordnance Survey Map Showing Site of McCarthy Castle, Scart, Bantry, Silver Mines, Lead Mines on Hutchinson Estate.

c 1620 the McCarthys relocated from Scart to Gearhameen in Durrus. The replacement Castle is wrongly called Cú na Long. Some years ago during reclamation work near the site of Scart Castle(of which thee are no remains) a piece of highly ornamented stonework was found. Last year I was unable to locate it in ditches.

1834. Erin Mavourneen-Erin go Bragh, Protestant Meeting in Bandon, Co. Cork.


West Cork History

1834.  Erin Mavourneen-Erin go Brágh, Protestant Meeting in Bandon, Co. Cork.

At first instance it might appear strange that phrase in Irish would raise a cheer at a Protestant Meeting with a strong tinge of Orange.   However in the early 19th century there was a body of  Irish Protestant opinion that they were the true inheritor of Ireland’s traditions.  The reference to demagogues is to Daniel O’Connell.

A touch from later of the tangled loyalties of Bandon Protestants come up later in Sam Birds memoir, he wrote as ‘Brian Boru’

1741 Deed of contemplated Marriage Rooska, Barony of Bantry and Bere, West Cork, names mentioned Varian, Vickery, Baker, Denis, Ferguson, Daly, Croston. 1790 Vickery/Warner Marriage.


West Cork History

1741 Deed of contemplated Marriage Rooska, Barony of Bantry and Bere, West Cork, names mentioned Varian, Vickery, Baker, Denis, Ferguson. The deed is referred to in a later deed of 1790 sworn in Cork. These deeds were located by Ron Price (historian of the Sullivan/Vickery family) in Belfast in the PRO microfilm of the Registry of Deeds, Dublin records.

They would seems to cast doubt on the theory that the Bantry Vickery family originated with two brothers shipwrecked or at least put the shipwreck a generation back.  The brothers may still have been shipwrecked but returning to their homeplace.

The names referred to are the Varians of Rooska, Richard son of Richard was marrying 1741 Grace Ferguson daughter of John Ferguson of Four Mile Water (Durrus). The Fergusons were either in Clashadoo or Coomkeen and the name features even in the 1938 Durrus School Folklore Project as one of the…

Famine in Durrus West Cork December, 1846.


West Cork History

Mr. Freeman to the united parishes of Durrus and Kilcrohane, more generally known as Four–Mile-Water a small village situate a short distance from Dunmanus Bay.  In the parish the amount of Government work provided is sufficient for the employment of little more than one thousand labourers – leaving fifteen hundred able bodied men, the ostensible supporters of families completely powerless for this purpose.  On making enquiries of the kind hearted and benevolent clergyman (the parish priest was Fr. Quinn, Church of Ire, William Moore Crosthwaite 1842-1854) as to the state of the labouring population, his reply was precisely ‘My dear Sir, no description, that I could give would for a moment adequately tell the misery, the wretchedness’ of my poor people – they are in a most frightful state of destitution that can possible be imagined. They are living…
