My late Mother ….Margaret Rose Flynn (Married name Quinn) from Kiltybarden near Aughnasheelin chapel used to tell a story that her father told her. He claimed the their Flynn family had a French origin. I have never been able to work out what this might have been beyond a loose theory that the French passed through Leitrim after landing in Mayo and subsequently losing a battle with some British general or another. Anyone have have any thoughts on it ?
