Title: Courceys  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Courceys is a barony in County Cork on the south coast of Ireland. Its name refers to the Norman de Courcy family, who ruled the area from the early 13th century. The villages in the parish include Ballinspittle and Ballinadee.

Legal context

Baronies were created after the Norman invasion of Ireland as divisions of counties and were used in the administration of justice and the raising of revenue. While baronies continue to be officially defined units, they have been administratively obsolete since 1898. However, they continue to be used in land registration and in specification, such as in planning permissions. In many cases, a barony corresponds to an earlier Gaelic tĂșath which had submitted to the Crown.


The local Gaelic Athletic Association team is Courcey Rovers GAA. The soccer team is De Courcey Albion whose season runs from August to May. They compete in Cork's AUL Leagues. In the 2010/11 season they finished second in AUL 3 and were promoted to AUL 2.
