Kinvarra Castle (Dunguaire)
Cooke: 1842/1843

According to Thomas L. Cooke’s 1842/1843 Autumnal Rambles in Kinvara and beyond…
Kinvarra was granted by the Crown the 16th of June, on the 21st year of Charles the Second’s (A.D.1681) reign, at a rent of £1 03 3d, by the name of Kinvara along with Durus, and many neighbouring lands, to Col. Cary Dillon. O’Flaherty, who in the Ogygia spells the name Kinnmbeara, says that it was the Belgians who gave it that name.

RODERIC O’FLAHERTY
Roderic O’Flaherty wrote the Ogygia in Latin in 1685. It was translated by the Rev James Hely AB in 1793). A brief exploration suggests that Kinnmbeara may have been misspelt by Cooke – Rinnmbeara could be the correct spelling – the typeface and/or printing quality may have led to some confusion.

Whatever the case – it appears Kinvara’s been in the EU for centuries….
