LINCH Family History

Lynch, one of the most numerous and distinguished Irish surnames, is a fusion of two different races. One forebear was de Lynch who came with the Normans. The other was Labradh Longseach (mariner), who in the 6th century B.C. was King of Ireland. These Lynches settled in Clare, Sligo, Limerick and Donegal. The Norman Lynches were leaders of the ?14 tribes of Galway? From 1484-1654 Galway city had 84 Lynch mayors! To protect their families and their wealth they built strong castles in Connemara and in Galway city. Thomas Lynch, a plantation owner, signed the American Declaration of Independence. Jack Lynch was Taoiseach for two terms in the 1970s.
