Nádúraí Éireannach ab ea Richard Manliffe Barrington. Rugadh i 1849 é san Fhásach Rua in aice le Bré, Contae Chill Mhantáin agus fuair sé bás i mBaile Átha Cliath ar an 15 Meán Fómhair 1915.[1][2]

Feirmeoir agus luachálaí talún ab ea Barrington. Cuireadh oideachas air i gColáiste na Tríonóide áit ar ghnóthaigh sé MA. Scríobh sé tuairiscí ar fhlóra Loch Rí, Loch Éirne, Binn Ghulbain, Toraigh agus na Blascaodaí go léir a d’fhoilsigh Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann, ach tá an chuid is mó dá pháipéir eolaíochta ar éanlaith. Is é an saothar is cáiliúla dá chuid ná The migration of birds, as observed at Irish lighthouses and lightships including the original reports from 1888–97, now published for the first time, and an analysis of these and of the previously put together with an appendix giving the measurements of about 1600 wings.[3] Níor cuireadh ach 350 cóip den saothar 667 leathanach seo i gcló.

Bhí Barrington ar cheann de na ceannairí ón Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann ar thuras taiscéalaíochta go Rocal sa bhliain 1896 le Robert Lloyd Praeger agus John A. Harvie Brown, nádúraí Albanach as Dùn na Bàis (1844–1916).[4]
