"The Faux Wisdom is the Worse Ignorance"

Many chapters of the Western Europe History have been crushed or misleading along centuries. However the truth is priceless, it can not be subject to a "purchasing or selling" merchandising concept; but rather to an "adding value"  in helping to escape of the darkness to any member of our "Human Community"  who loves Europe as his old  Homeland. 

We also know that criticisms are often hard to listen but most of the time are necessary as a part of our democracy principles. (W. Churchill)

Should I to be assertive when we say that everything depends of our capacity in increasing our intellectual progress in investigating our own deepest roots inside our "Caucasian-Jewish-Christian-Roman"  remote civilization?.

We are far to try to make fortunes with it, we feel just happy to spread our European Culture and our old traditions, in terms of History, Genealogy, Heraldry, Ethic and Philosophy all of them "free of charges". In fact and as one of us said: "Each individual is the sum of all his ancestry" ..... and remember please: "The truth will suffer but it will never perish"

The Earl of Clonard.

(*) The Counts de Clonard "as Jacobites  and Catholics" were reduced to  the Generic of  Esquires, according to the English Rules

 for Ireland at that time. However, they became again Earls of Clonards in Spain as well as in France.  (Carlos III and Louis XV)

IX Lord and Lady Clonard in Spain, since 1770 - (Earls of Clonard in Eire before the Religion Wars)














Le Lion Vert à double queue, sur fond "Or" appartient à la Branche des Aînés des Comtes de Clonard, descendants de Leonard, (marié avec Lady Margaret Rossiter) - plus ses ancêtres, qui sont les nôtres - et correspond à la Branche Espagnole, soit la lignée de John l'aîné. (Réf. 20 sur le tableau)

 Les Branches Benjamines "Sutton de Clonard", - dans ce cas précis celle d'Edward -  ont , d'après nos vieux  notes, un blason sur fond  "Or" avec un lion vert ou parfois rouge à double queue. «Au pied du lion il y a aussi une salamandre» . Tout ceci est conforme aux traditions Anglo-Normandes en la matière et aux Normes anciennes du Roi d'Armes de la Grande Bretagne.

 Les preuves qui nous ont permis d'établir cette information sont conservées par les Comtes de Clonard en Espagne et dans les Archives de la Chancellerie de Grenade, où le Premier Comte de Clonard Espagnol, Michael de Sutton (1770) est reconnu comme étant l'héritier du Comté de Clonard (Wexford) en Irlande.

 Juste avant la Guerre Civile Espagnole (1936-1939) mes grand-parents paternels avaient reçu de la nouvelle République d'Irlande une lettre nous reconnaissant comme ayant-droit du patrimoine irlandais de ma famille, pour récupérer notre patrimoine et indiquant que nous dévions verser une grande somme d' argent au titre des Impôts sur le Patrimoine. Cette affaire fut laissée en suspens à cause des deux guerres,  dont la Deuxième Guerre Mondiale.

More about to the old Clonard Monastery in Ireland (C. Meath)   Clonard (Irish, Cluain Eraird, or Cluain Ioraird, Erard's Meadow) was situated on the beautiful river Boyne, just beside the boundary line of the northern and southern halves of Ireland. The founder of this school, the most famous of the sixth century, was St. Finnian, an abbot and great wonder-worker. He was born at Myshall, County Carlow, about 470. At an early age he was placed under the care of St. Fortchern, by whose direction, it is said, he proceeded to Wales to perfect himself in holiness and sacred knowledge under the great saints of that country. After a long sojourn there, of thirty years according to the Salamanca MS., he returned to his native land and went about from place to place, preaching, teaching, and founding churches, till he was at last led by an angel to Cluain Eraird, which he was told would be the place of his resurrection. Here he built a little cell and a church of clay and wattle, which after some time gave way to a substantial stone structure, and entered on a life of study, mortification, and prayer. The fame of his learning and sanctity was soon noised abroad, and scholars of all ages flocked from every side to his monastic retreat — young laymen and clerics, abbots and bishops even, and those illustrious saints who were afterwards known as the "Twelve Apostles of Erin". In the Office of St. Finnian it is stated that there were no fewer than 3000 pupils getting instruction at one time in the school in the green fields of Clonard under the broad canopy of heaven. The master excelled in exposition of the Sacred Scriptures, and to this fact must be mainly attributed the extraordinary popularity which his lectures enjoyed. The exact date of the saint's death is uncertain, but it was probably 552, and his burial-place is in his own church of Clonard. For centuries after his death the school continued to be renowned as a seat of Scriptural learning, but it suffered at the hands of the Danes, especially in the eleventh century, and two wretched Irishmen, O'Rorke of Breifney and Dermod McMurrough, helped to complete the unholy work which the Northmen had begun. With the transference by the Norman Bishop de Rochfort, in 1206, of the See of Meath from Clonard to Trim, the glory of the former place departed forever. Irish Life in Book of Lismore; HEALY, Ireland's Ancient Schools and Scholars (Dublin, 1890).


After  the dissolution of the monasteries by order of Henry VIII, the lands of the Clergy were confiscated, passing  to be the property of Sir Thomas Cusack, Chancellor of Ireland and whose daughter Elizabeth  was married to  John de Sutton, Count of Clonard. 

The deterioration in the monastery buildings during the last centuries before lands were taken by the Chancellor of Ireland was already  a clear evidence, However it was improved by the Clonard-Cusack clan who obviously allowed  the "monks" to remain in their "new lands", under the pseudonime of farmers.

In spite of  History's  turbulences the ruins of Cluain-Iraird, stayed visible up to 1798 - year in which -  the "Battle of Clonard" took place, although Cromwell (c.1648) in his previous pass by this holy place , destroyed the few buildings wich they had been able to preserve and to maintain still on. 

Cromwell, as the largest of  massacrors left Clonard in ruins and without their inhabitants, so by this way his repressive activity on the Papists or Catholics , would be never forgotten
