BROSNAN Family History

This is a famous Irish clan surname recorded in the spellings of Brosnan, Brosnahen, Brushnihan, Brusnane, Brushneen, and many others forms, some very rare indeed. The name was originally found only in the county of Kerry. All early recordings are there, and it is a name which epitomises the survival of the gaelic culture in the remote fastness of the far west of the country. Although the clan was never large, perhaps averaging about 1000 members in Ireland, it has a long history. The derivation is from the pre 10th century O' Brosnachain, meaning the 'son of the descendant of Brosna' it is claimed that the development is from the place called 'Brosna' in Kerry...
