Welcome to the Brabazon Blog! We are trying to get a forum going that would be more instantaneous and universal than either the family website (brabazonarchive.com) or separate emailing. We have commenced with a handful of topics - taken from the website - to kick-start conversations. Your suggestions for additional areas of interest and emails of a personal nature can be sent to Michael Brabazon at mbbrabazon@yahoo.co.uk

As we are probably all now aware, the Brabazon Clan is not homogenous but rather a mosaic of smaller genetic groupings, sometimes explicable by descent via a Brabazon female line, sometimes due to the adoption of the Brabazon name for various known or unknown reasons. By casting the discussion network as wide as possible perhaps we can begin to shed more light on each of the sub-lineages of the Clan - worldwide brainstorming, so to speak!

The Earl and Countess of Meath remain the standard bearers of the Brabazon name, and I think we would all agree that we have an excellent family at the very heart of the Brabazon Clan. Across the spectrum of our Family we are a good microcosm of Irishness in all its cultural forms and our cohesiveness in diversity is perhaps the best testimony to the greatness of our ancestors. So start blogging and let's see where it goes!

The JM Brabazon will be Minerva Automobiles' first new car in 76 years and, if it can get beyond the pre-concept stage, it could give supercar companies a serious challenge in terms of luxury, exclusivity and performance.

Named after Lord John Moore‐Brabazon of Tara, Britain's first aviator and an all-round 19th-century polymorph, the car will be capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 2.1 seconds and onto a top speed of over 400km/h. But, because it will be using a hybrid petrol-electric powertrain, it will also be able to offer 100km of emissions-free motoring just on the battery.
