Mayo's Robert Horatio George Minty: Past Imperfect Hero

I see the long, blue line, push back the rebel pickets

Far stretched o’er hill and dale; through break and thickets.

My old heart leaps

As up the steeps

Rock-crowned and flinty:

I see the…

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?

At 12:05pm on May 4, 2013, The Wild Geese said…

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.
