Lynch Clan Homelands


The Lynch Clan has spread far and wide across the continents of the world but the origins of all those who hold the Lynch name can all be traced back to the clan homelands that lie throughout the four corners of Ireland.


Obviously, the most powerful Lynch Clan held their seat of dominance in the western county of Galway (pictured) which is located within the province of Connaught.  Galway City is an extremely popular place for tourist to visit who are attracted by the city’s unique charm, laid back atmosphere and wonderfully cultural approach to life. In fact, while you’re visiting Galway City you will encounter the proud heritage of the Lynch Clan if you visit between Shop Street and Abbeygate Street where you’ll find that Lynch’s Castle still stands, now in usage as a bank!


The neighbouring county of Clare is also strongly connected to the Lynch Clan heritage and like Galway, this region is a haven for tourists who are drawn to the coastal scenery off the county not to mention the top tourist attractions of the Cliffs of Moher (pictured), The Burren and Ailwee Caves .


The Lynch Clan links to Co. Cork in the southern province of Munster have always been strong and this part of Ireland holds much for the visitor. Because of its south coast location, Cork has some wonderful beaches and scenic drives and the rugged landscape of West Cork (pictured) in particular is a sight to behold.


County Louth, located on the north east coast of Ireland, within the province of Leinster is another location where the Lynch Clan has close ties to. With its charming fishing villages such as Carlingford (pictured) and historic towns such as Dundalk and Drogheda, County Louth is a region of great heritage and importance to the origins of the Lynch Clan.
