Pat,

I was interested in the origin of the name Lynam and indeed in your name although I suspect there are many Pat Lynams in Ireland. I live in Glasgow and come from a long line of Lynams from Dundee. The name Pat/ Paddy has been common in our family since the mid 1800's, as have the names Ned(Edward)and Luke. My Grandfather(Paddy) born in Dundee in 1887 and his brother Luke both fought in the Great War. I Know that his father (Luke...I think) was also born in Dundee, but I believe his Grandfather(Ned...I think) came from County Claire, or perhaps Cork.

Kind Regards
