It is reputed that The Barrys who settled here are a branch of the Anglo Norman, Barrymore Clan of Buttevant once an important medieval centre, in North Co.Cork. Their territory stretched all across North Cork and Southwards outside the City at Carrigtwohill where the impressively restored Barryscourt Castle currently stands.

Can anyone confirm have any historical info etc. as to whether Castlebar does give its name to these deBarra's
