Delighted to find your website. My father was Jimmy Lannin b.Cork 1920 died Dublin 1974; His father was Joseph Lannin who had Lannin’s Bakery in Gilabbey Street in Cork and Lannin’s grocery and winery shop on Washington Street in Cork up to mid 1960s.My great grandfather was another James Lannin who hailed from Bantry. We’re getting a bit thin on the ground as it’s nearly all girls being born. I have three – we live in Delgany Co Wicklow – and my brother Joe in Cork has three. My brother Paul – who lives in Dalkey Co.Dublin, the village where Michelle Obama and her girls had their lunch last time they were here – has a son, Sam, a lovely fellow, with a lot of responsibility on his shoulders now. Anyway great to hear about you so maybe we’ll email/talk/meet up in the future.Was very interested also in The Lannin Walk.
All the best for now, Finbar Lannin.
I have been putting together our family tree for a while now and I came cross this site when researching names in my past. My name is Tony O’Connell and Morgan O’Connell was my father. Your father and mine were great friends and I have fond memories of your Dad. We used to call him “Uncle Jimmy”. I remember he had a house in Pol Gorm in Crosshaven. Just to let you know they were great days.
Thanks for your comment. My father was also Jimmy Lannin b. Chicago, Illinois 1918 died Batesville, Arkansas (as am I, called “Little Jimmy” until I outgrew my Dad). My father was named after my great grandfather who came to the US around 1851, from Schull, according to the family oral tradition. Sean Lannin was on the Community Council there until about a year ago.
We were in Dublin (Airport) last November for about two hours, changing planes on an Aer Lingus trip from New York to Rome. We must return, as my Mullen wife and I have a lot of heritage to discover.
