The Barry name can be traced back to three very distinct Barry families of very different origins based
in the parish of Carrigtwohill and surrounding districts of both Catholic and Protestant faiths. All three
had vastly extended branches, and may still be found in the village and neighbouring townlands to this day.
The Standish Barry family is a branch of the original Catholic Barry family. Whereas, the Smith Barry family
were Protestant of English origin, and who have no connection to the Barry or Standish Barry clans, who were
of this parish.
One very important branch of the Barry family includes those of Rockville, fully chronicled by Reverend Edmond Barry,
M.R.I.A., V.P.R.S.A.I., former PP of the Rathcormac, and Rockville. This is a valuable and rare document which has been
scanned for posterity; a copy of which was published Cork Historical and Archaeological Society Journal, 1902, and may
be found at the local history section of Cork City Library, Grand Parade.
