There’s many a lonely hearth-stone tonight in wide Mayo,

There’s many a gallant heart content again can never know

But darkest woe and grief for him the saintly true and tried,

Who on the Saxon scaffold that day for freedom died.

Joe, where in Ireland do your people come from?

I have a McLaughlin line on my mother's side that we know was from Co. Cavan, but left way back in the 1830s. Gannon is a Mayo name, but we can only trace that side of the family back to a great-grandfather who was born in England, where they must of gone for work.

I ask because we have good friends in Connemara here who are Gannons.  There is a significant pocket of them in Leitir Móir, which is where our friends are from.
