This is a comprehensive three volume set, representing an entire lifetime of work by the esteemed Irish genealogist, Riobard O'Dwyer. Volume I includes all of the parish records for Adrigole and Allihies; Volume II includes all of the parish records for Bere Island and Eyeries; Volume III includes all of the parish records for Castletownbere and Glengarriff on the peninsula of Beara, each carefully translated and transcribed for posterity. These water stained and sun bleached manuscripts were very close to becoming illegible when Mr. O'Dwyer single handedly saved their precious information for generations to come. The Annals of Beara is, without a doubt, the most important genealogical work of the O'Sullivan family and the other tribes of Beara. A brief history of the O'Sullivan clan written by Gary B. Sullivan is included at the end of Volume III.
Anyone from the Beara peninsula in Cork who is serious about learning his/her roots should obtain a copy of Mr. O'Dwyer's magnum opus. Visit the Annals of Beara on this site page to preview this priceless work.
