Flynn Coat of Arms

FLYNN

The surname O'Flynn is derived from the Gaelic personal name Flann which denotes "a dull red color" and means ruddy when applied to persons. O Floinn is the form of the surname in Irish. It is one of those which arose independently in several parts of the country and, as might be expected, is widely distributed. It ranks forty-first in the list of most numerous surnames in Ireland. These are found chiefly in two main areas - Cork and Waterford in the south, and on the borders of Connacht and Ulster in the adjacent counties of Roscommon, Leitrim and Cavan. Two of the O'Flynn families originated in Co. Cork. Of these O'Flynn of Ardagh Castle (between Skibbereen and Baltimore) was a branch of the Corca Laoidhe; and the O'Flynns of Muskerry were lords of Muskerrylinn , the country between Ballyvourney and Blarney.

The first of this name that can be traced to us is Daniel Flynn. He was born sometime in the mid 19th century and it is unknown when he died. He married a woman by the name of Kit O’Brien and they had seven children: Mary, William, Michael, Daniel , Morris , Bridget, Edward.
