Barony of Balrothery East


History and Genealogy – you can’t have one without the other. - Declan F Brady

Balrothery East is a feudal title of nobility and one of the baronies of Ireland. Originally part of the Lordship of Meath, it was then constituted as part of the old county of Dublin. Today, it lies in the modern county of Fingal. The barony was created by Hugh de Lacy, Lord of Meath as his own feudal barony, held directly from himself in capite. His vassals were commonly called "De Lacy's Barons". At the heart of the barony is the civil parish of Balrothery in the northwest of the barony. It is one of eight civil parishes in the barony.
