Richard's father was Owen Guinness ( Guinneas / Guinis/ Ginnies )

( Owen =Eoin : Gallic ) It appears the name Guinness is a hybrid of sources ,both geographically and Gaelic morphing

DNA test indicate Gion Ais a Count Down locally . IN 1640 Gion Ais belonged ,with other nearby townships to Clan Chief Phelim McCartan .MCCARTAN family the DNA BASE.

Guinness ( Guinneas / Guinis/ Ginnies ) These changes appear to evolve with the identification of the Protestant faith and move away from catholic , plus political affiliations
