Lang Syne Irish Family Clan Information History Fact Book - Flanagan
Carriers of a bloodline that can be traced back to one of Ireland’s greatest warrior kings, the Flanagans played a key role at pivotal points in the island’s dramatic history.
Allied as they were to the Royal O’Connors, they were at the forefront of the struggle for freedom and independence, while many thrive to this day through rather more peaceful endeavours and pursuits.
In the world of the written word, Thomas Flanagan was the American professor of English literature who was the author of a series of Irish historical novels that include the 1979 The Year of the French.
In politics, Oliver J. Flanagan was the socially conservative Irish Fine Gael party politician who served in the Irish Parliament, Dáil Éireann, for 43 years until his retirement from politics in 1987, and who once memorably declared that ‘there was no sex in Ireland before television’.
