Lynch (Moycarn)

Owen Lynch had an estate in the parish of Moore, barony of Moycarn, in the mid-nineteenth century. In 1861 lands at Rathpeak and Coolderry, the property of Owen Lynch, an infant, were offered for sale in the Landed Estates court. By 1906 these lands were in the possession of the Mathers. In 1778 Taylor & Skinner recorded another Lynch property, Suckville, close to the bridge in Ballinasloe.
