O’Callaghan of Bannagh, Kanturk, County Cork

There have been O’Callaghan’s in Bannagh for hundreds of year. On the eve of the 1641 Rebellion, for instance, Donough O’Callaghan, ‘Irish Papist’, claimed ownership of 144 acres in Banteer. However, by 1670, those same 144 acres were registered to a Captain Walter Yelverton.
