My family was Flynn of Curraghroche, Affane. Thomas Flynn married Bridget Ryan around 1825-30. Had several children. Bridget came to America with her children, as a widow, about 1850. They settled in Covington, Kentucky. They may have been boatbuilders in Ireland. Thanks! Deenie

  • Eugenie;  The  Flynn's of Abbeyside Dungarvan, County Waterford had a long tradition  with the sea,

    Some of them were ships Masters. but many of them went to sea.

    Dungarvan church records are the earliest records, and you can find them here, you can also check Aglish, (Curraghroche) 

     Catholic Parish Registers at the NLI

    Happy hunting

  • Thank you! I'll look. They were boatbuilders from Curraghroche, Affane. Many of the family came to the US around 1850.
