Hello, After about 3x decades of trying with little success on this Dynan/Dinan line from the very early 1800’s and going back into history, new information now places the line being from County Clare and with very strong ties to the McNamara’s, and other ties to Casey, McInerney, O’Dea, Slattery etc. 

Any help would be wonderful, thank you.

  • Lindy,

    Please see Tithe Applotment Records - 1823 to 1837  at - Free Site

    The spelling Dinan is the more common and can be found in various parts of County Clare.

    The County Clare library - may be able to assist in connecting the other names you mention to "Dinan /Dynan" family.

    It would be helpful if you had any family ( first) names/dates. All the family names you listed are associated with County Clare.
