O' Curreens Townland or Townland of the marshy shoreline. This Townland of 557 acres to the north of Kilroe is bounded on the north and west by Lough Corrib, south by Gortbrack and east by Glassvalley, Mounthenry, and Gortatober. An obvious place for early man to hunt and settle as it has numerous fresh water streams, springs, trees and hills. Traces of civilization dating from the Neolithic Age (4000BC ? 2000BC) have been found in this townland. Neolithic Stone Age axes were found in a field on the lakeshore in the 1980's. Similar types were found around Moycullen in the last century suggesting that the lake was used as a route of communications. In 1827 and 1862, numerous Bronze Age discoveries were made at the northern part of the townland at Shannon ? Possibly Sean Dun. These consisted of Bronze Age swords, a shield and hundreds of amber beads? The latter are thought to have originated in the Baltic Countries. They were discovered by Stephen and Margaret Sullivan who, under the guidance of the landlord Charles Lynch, sold them to the National Museum for one pound and ten shillings as treasure trove. There are also signs of Bronze Age lead mines in the vicinity mentioned by William Wilde in his book "Wilde's Lough Corrib". In the 1840's Elizabethan and Jacobite silver coins were found to the east of Ballycurrin Big House. The townland is dominated by the impressive ruins of a very old Tower House, Ballycurrin Castle. It measures 64ft. long by 47ft. high. It shows signs of very early stonework. The castle dates from the 14th century approximately and many additions and alterations were made in the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1966 the south wall and stairwell fell thereby ending a long tradition of engraving messages and initials in the tar/pitch roof. Ballycurrin Castle (A MacShoneen stronghold. MacShoneen a name now anglicised into Jennings ( De Burgo/Burke ancestory). In 1401 Thomas Mc William held the castle. Edmund Burke of Cong held the castle in 1588 and in 1628 it was granted to Earl Clanricharde. It was a Mac Seoinin stronghold. Ulick MacSeoinin occupied it in 1574 and Richard, Earl of Clanricarde acquired it in 1610. In 1679, it was leased to Maurice Lynch ? descendants of Sir Henry Lynch, Galway, 1st. Baronet who died in 1634. Maurice Lynch's son, Joseph, got possession of the demesne in 1700. It remained in the family until Charles Lynch died in 1897. The Lynch’s built Ballycurrin House next door to the castle. Among the better known members of this family was Henry Lynch, who, because of this love of sailing and needing a marker point and quay to get provisions from the Galway Cong steamer, built Ballycurrin Lighthouse. It is the only inland lighthouse of its type in Europe. The roof is made of a mill wheel. (map ref. N53.48519 W 9.21310.) Beside it, he built a boathouse which has a stone engraved with "Erected by Henry Lynch Esq. A.D. 1772". The townland of Mounthenry, formerly known as Coarse Field, is named after Henry Lynch. Another member, Peter, who became a Papal Knight, built an impressive Big House on the shores of Lough Mask , Petersburgh nowadays a popular outdoor pursuits centre. Ballycurrin Lighthouse The last of the Ballycurrin Lynch's was Charles who was married to Helena Joyce, Mervue, Galway. Their only son died in infancy and on Charles's death, the Clarkin family inherited the estate. A branch of the Lynch's contested the Will in a protracted law case (Lynch v Clarkin) however the Will was upheld. The Clarkin's sold the estate to the Congested Districts Board who resold the house and part of the estate to Colonel Beddington, a retired English Colonel. He renovated the house and planted and landscaped the area around the house. Many of the Lynch relatives and inlaws remained living in the area close to Ballycurrin House on the shores of Lough Corrib. Many of those Lynch's are buried in the Nave of Ross Errilly Friary (some are buried in Lynch Crypt in the nave of the church and many in an unmarked grave under or beside the the mchugh tomb N53.47971 W9.13135) The Tomb in the Nave has been flattened to ground level and the slabs moved close to the church wall. There is also a ring fort or Rath in the area of the Parks (Lynch Parks). Originally built as a defensive homestead with surrounding circular mounds, it was then used as a Lisheen or children's burial ground up to the 1930's. There are other historical connections, particularly, found in placenames, such as Crocan na Saighdiuiri which overlooks a little island called Priosun. The stories behind such names have been lost through the ages. In the last century, Ballycurrin had its own mill at the junction with Glassvalley, powered by the Ballycurrin stream. It also had it's own Poitin Stil in a field by the lake still known as Teach na Stile. Apparently there was a brisk trade to and from across the lake and to the islands in the illicit brew. In more recent times, it had it's own blacksmith's forge at Molloys and a concrete block factory at Butlers. Note, Ballycurran House beside thecastle: The American descendants of the Clarkin’s say that Ballycurrin house was burnt down so that the family did not have to pay English taxes. I have heard of this reason before however I believe the property had already been purchased by the congested Districts Board who were in the process of selling it to Colonel Beddington. The Australian Clarkin’s tell me that James Clarkin was present at the burning. James Clarkin's son Charles Clarkin wrote many years later that "he saw his inheritance go up in flames as it was burnt down that night as an Englishman buying the estate was not looked upon well in that part of Ireland at that time" The wooden gates to the estate were thrown into Lough Corrib. The contents were removed from the house before it was burnt and were auctioned by a Mrs B Clarkin in Oranmore Galway in 1921. The contents of the auction included a sword supposed to have been presented to a john O’Moore by Nelson and a large portrait of Daniel O'Connell. James Clarkin died in 1917. Sources, History of Christian Names (Vol. 1). London: Forgotten Books. (Original work published 1863) “ theConnaught branch of the great Norman family of De Burghs first Iricised themselves into Mac William, then the Mayo stem descended from a John, or Shawn turned into MacShoneen, and finally, when taken with an English taste, became Jennings”. J.F. Quinn series of articles on Mayo history published in the Western People during the 1930s “Currin or Marsh was the original name of Ballycurrin castle. It was then a MacShoneen stronghold. Ulick MacShoneen Burke occupied it in 1574. It does not figure in the Annals. Richard, Earl of Clanricarde, got it in 1610. It was leased to the Lynchs, who retained it until Chas. Lynch, of Ballycurrin, died in 1897” William R. Wilde's Loch Coirib - Its Shores and Islands Chapter 6: Inis U Chuinn to Inis A' Ghaill and Cunga Fheichn (Cong) This old tower-house, or defensive mansion, consists of a quadrangular ivy-mantled keep--now somewhat altered for modern purposes--sixty-four feet long on the south, thirty-nine on the west face, and forty-seven feet high; but possessing no architectural memorial by which to assign even a probable date to it; as the dressed stones are not chiselled, but punched, or what is styled "sparrowpicked"; massive defence and security having evidently been the main objects of its founders. Both it and the newer residence are most pleasingly situated on a green slope, rising from a sheltered little bay, and surrounded by a large park of well-grown timber. There is no reference to this ancient building in our histories or inquisitions; and the only legend attaching there to is, that it was built in the "ould times" by one of three brothers, the two others of whom erected those of Ballynahinsey and Moceara (possibly Mac Ceara), with which it forms a triangle. After the Milesian invasion, our bardic histories say that one of that race, named "Caicer, erected a castle at Dn Inn, in the West of Ireland." Upon the shore adjoining Ballycurrin there exists a mound, or earthen tumulus of that name, and mentioned in Keating's History of Ireland. There is, however, no mortared structure in Ireland older than the Christian Era. And he is also of opinion that Ceara, one of the artificers said to have come over at that time left his name to many localities in Connacht--such as Loch Ceara, Caiseal Ceara; and in this immediate neighbourhood, Tobar Ceara and Girrn Ceara, or Ceara's well and garden. In the old quit rent receipts Ballycurrin is called Ballycar, possibly a corruption or anglicized version of Baile Ceara. In the vicinity was found the collection of amber beads, and several bronze antiquities, now in the collection of the Royal Irish Academy. BALLYCURRAN LYNCH'S. Descendant of Sir Henry Lynch, first Baronet of Galway, who died in 1634, his son Maurice was transplanted to Ballynonagh in 1655. Maurice then got a lease of Ballicurran castle and 4 quarters of land on March 1679. He died in 1684 and his son Joseph got a renewal of the lease. Joseph had three sons ,Maurice who inherited Ballynonagh on his father’s death in 1721, Ignatius, a merchant in Galway, and Peter. A son of Ignatius, Joseph, succeeded to Ballycurran on his grandfather’s death, as he died young and without issue the property then went to his uncle Peter. This Peter Lynch built the mansion house in Ballycurran and was the first Lynch to actually live there, from 1728. Peter died in 1760 and his son Henry succeeded to the estate. Henry died in 1820 and the Friars of Kilroe named their townland after him, Monthenry, so that all may remember him. He was succeeded by his son Capt. Peter Lynch who died in 1840, Peter had married Julia Lynch, a distant cousin, and had a large family, four sons and four daughters. His son Charles was his successor, he married Helena Joyce of Merview, Galway. Their only son died in infancy and Helena died in the famine year of 1847. Charles became High Sheriff of County Mayo and in 1849 he donated one acre of land and some material help for the construction of a national school in Kilroe Bells Life in London and Sporting Chronicle SUNDAY, JANUARY 25, 1863. ROYAL WESTERN YACHT CLUB OF IRELAND. The usual meetings of the members of this club continue to be held at their new and handsome club rooms in the Queen's Hotel, Queenstown; every ballot night the active and energetic secre- tary, Mr J. Lyon Thorne, R. N., has his time fully occupied, ana the prospects for the approaching season are most promising. The following members have been recently elected:— Charles Lynch, Esq, D. L., Ballycurrin Castle, Headford, cutter Fairy; Travers B. Wire, Esq, Stone House, Lewisham, cutter Elsie; Thomas Dawson, Esq, Maryville, Taunton, cutter Water Witch ; John Lancaster, Esq, Hindley Hall, Wigan, screw- steamer Deer- hound ; John Lear, Esq, Liverpool, cutter Plover ; James L. Swan- ton, Esq, Skibbereen, cutter Antelope; Mathew O'Connor, Esq, Drumshambo, cutter Querida ; William Harrington, Esq, Cork ; DaviJ Fulton, Esq, Belfast; Henry Stuart Burton, Esq, Carrigaholt Castle ; E. G. Seymour, Esq, Queenstown ; Captain Thomas C. Clarke, harbour master, Cork; and George C. Evans, Esq, Cork. It is with much regret that we learn the club is about to lose the services, as secretary, of Mr Thorne, who is about again to proceed on service ; by his courtesy, attention, and active business habits during his connection with it, he has gained the esteem and confidence of his brother officers and the members generally, and much regret will be experienced upon his leaving for Ports- mouth Ross Abbey Ross Abbey had up to 1584 an uneventful existence because when Henry VIII was in power, the Franciscans were fortunate in being under the protection of the friendly Clanrickardes, who left them undisturbed in their saintly work. In 1584, however, Elizabeth received information that the friars were still in occupation and she granted the monastery to an Englishman, who forthwith expelled the inmates and plundered it of it's library, books and other valuables. The destruction of the precious records and books is to be deeply lamented down to the present time. The "Poor Friars" were welcomed to the shelter of the humble homes of the people in Shrine Parish as they were also in Killursa, where they had been domiciled. For two years they were harboured in the locality until in 1586, Ulic, the third Earl of Clanrickarde, succeeded in purchasing the Englishman's interest and immediately reinstated them. In 1612, the friars were reported again to the Lord Deputy, Chichester, who ordered William Daniel, Protestant Archbishop to Tuam, to arrest the community, which now consisted of only six priests and two lay?brothers. Though authorised to apprehend these holy men and demolishing their altars, the learned archbishop sent word privately to Ross that he was coming and advised them not to be there. From Wilde's Lough Corrib 1867 Therefore, on his arrival at the deserted friary the Franciscans were safely sheltered in the houses of Shrine parish just across the Black River where they were, in effect, outside the jurisdiction of the archbishop. For fourteen years these saintly men remained dependent on the generosity of their neighbours until 1626, when the first Stuart king was then no more. .

For fourteen years these saintly men remained dependent on the generosity of their neighbours until 1626, when the first Stuart king was then no more. The final flight of those holy men was brought about by the vengeful spirit of the natives of the West. The Abbey had now passed into the hands of Lord St. George of Headford, and under him enjoyed the same freedom as it had under the Clanrickardes. In 1753, however, St. George had won a lawsuit against an O'Flaherty of Iar?Chonnacht, and bent on revenge, O'Flaherty swore informations that his lordship was harbouring monks on his property and contributing directly towards their upkeep. He also added that those monks were residing in an Abbey, the tower of which could be seen from the windows of Headford Castle, which, of course, was not literally true. These allegations if proven, would mean serious trouble for St. George, and the Authorities resolved to investigate the matter fully. A commission was speedily sent to Ross with powers to imprison the friars, and orders to make a full report on he alleged misconduct of St. George. But his lordship must have had good friends in Galway, for news of the impending visit was brought secretly to him at Headford and he, in turn, passed the sad news to the friars. The friary was promptly evacuated and neighbouring people, many of whom were Shrine parishioners, immediately began to give the buildings the appearance of a factory. They whitewashed the interior walls and ceilings, covering the many beautiful frescoes, and they installed spinning wheels and looms in the great church and refectories. On the arrival of the commissioners from Galway, the whole place gave the impression of housing a great woollen industry, and this was the report which was duly dispatched to he authorities. Therefore once more, by Divine Providence, the friars had eluded their enemies. Ballycurrin Bay Ballycurrin Bay is a very well known among our angling friends, having abundant if sometimes elusive brown trout, pike, perch, eel and an odd salmon. Ballycurrin stream is regarded as a fertile spawning ground for brown trout and significantly, with the work of the Inland Fishery Trust and the Headford and Corrib Angling club the number of "redds" is increasing annually. A noteworthy selection of Flora and Fauna thrive in Ballycurrin. Significant numbers of oak and beech as well as a few elm survivors and a variety of fir, pine and chestnut add to the beauty. Wild native potentilla grow on the shoreline as well as a few rare wild?flowers such as Bee?Orchids and Gentians. Indeed, many wild flowers which have made the Burren famous, grow in the area particularly along the lakeshore and on the islands. Foxes, badgers, hares and stoats have recently been joined by the pine?marten and the unwelcome signs of mink are being seen by the waterside and along Ballycurrin stream. As well as the usual birds some rarities such as .Kingfishers and Yellow Hammers are seen at intervals. Last May a keen angling visitor to the area saw a Peregrine Falcon flying over Ballycurrin Bay. In the 1960's and early 1970's, the bay was featured on Eamonn de Butleir's nature programme, "Amuigh Faoin Speir," on R.T.E. He filmed the hundreds of coots that congregated at the mouth of the Black River during spells of cold weather. Alas, these numbers have declined dramatically since then. While researching his books on foxes and in particular the Legend of the Corrib King, their author, Tom McCaughren, paid a number of visits to the area. Nowadays, Ballycurrin remains a tranquil rural townland which is becoming popular with many nationalities including Dutch, Swiss., German and American. THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 1840 MARRIED. On the 24th instant, in the parish church of Kilmain, County Mayo, by the Rev. F. Rutledge, of Bloomfield, Thomas Fair, Esq. of Fortville, to Margaret, second daughter of Captain Lynch; and afterwards at Ballycurrin Castle, the seat of her father, by the Rev. Richard Walsh, P.P. of Headford. The happy couple, accompanied by several friends, immediately after the ceremony proceeded to Fortville, where they partook of a dejuener prepared for the occasion. SPORTING NEWS A fine fox was shaken at Oldtore, on Thursday last, before the hounds of Captain LYNCH of Ballycurrin Castle. Poor Reynard after a severe and long run of about eighteen miles, over a very stiff country, at length baffled the ardour and determination of his pursuers by taking refuge of an earth on the banks of Lake Corrib. The day was peculiarly favourable, and immense numbers thronged to witness the sport. Amongst the foremost horeseman were the Messrs. LYNCHes, DALY, SKERRETT, and CRAMPTON. During the day six feet walls were leaped by those gallant members of the sporting community.---Tuam Herald. THE LATE PETER LYNCH, ESQ. It is with unaffected sorrow, we have this day, the painful duty of recording the death of Captain Peter Lynch of Ballycunin Castle, which melancholy event took place on the 5th instant.- Captain Lynch was in the 64th year of his age, and for many years a magistrate for this county, and endured a painful and prolonged illness with fortitude and resignation of a christian.- Through life he was a gentleman of the most tender and charitable feelings, one of the kindest and most indulgent of landlords, ever ready to assist the poor.- As as parent and a husband, the most sincere love and affection endeared him to his wife and family, while his loss, as a true Sportsman will be long felt in the neighbourhood in which he lived.- He is gone, it is hoped to a better world to enjoy the reward of a virtuous and pious life, deplored and sincerely regretted by his family and a wife circle of friends and relatives, who followed his remains (carried by his tenantry by his express desire) to the Abbey at Ross, where they were deposited to the family vault. A history of Ross Errilly confirms the Lynch's (Ballycurrin) tomb was in the nave of the church. The Petersburg Lynch's had their vault outside the friary. These Lynch's were not Irish. They were Anglo Norman An extract from HARDIMAN'S THE HISTORY OF GALWAY 1820, READS, Lynch. This is one of the most ancient, and, until the middle of the seventeenth century, was one of the leading families in Galway. In the old volume of pedigrees, preserved in the Heralds office, it appears, that, ''William le Petit, came to Ireland, in 1185, with Sir Hugh de Lacy, who granted him, by his charter, Macherithirnar, (now the barony of Macherydernan, in Westmeath,) except the Logh and Town of Dysart; that they were palatine barons of Molingare, and that William le Petit, had a son, Nicholas, who was ancestor to the family of Lynch of Galway. John de Lynch was the first settled of the name Lynch in Galway. He was married to the daughter and sole heiress of William de Mareschall, and, it is stated, that the eldest branch of the family, was called Mareschall, until the male line became extinct. During the greatest part of the 15, 16 and 17th centuries, they possessed the principal authority within the town. Dominick Lynch Fitz John, commonly called Dominick Dubh, in 1484 solicited and procured the charter of Richard III. under which he caused his brother, Pierce, to be elected first Mayor, and was himself the second. His son Stephen, at the same time, sued out and obtained the bull of Innocent VIII. which established here that singular ecclesiastical jurisdiction, the wardenship. Thomas Lynch Fitz Ambrose was the last catholic mayor in 1654. This is when the ancient inhabitants were dispossessed by Cromwell. During a period of 169 years, 84 members of this family, were mayors of Galway. The eldest line of the Lynches from which the younger branches sprung, was distinguished by the appelation of Cranmore, which means, the great tree or stock; and the house of Newcastle, descended from Emon-a-Tuane, who lived in 1342, claimed this distinction. The present lineal descendants of this family, are, the Count Lynch late Mayor of Bourdeaux, who so eminently distinguished himself in the cause of the royal family of France, against Buonaparte. Additionally, his relative, John Lynch Alexander, Esq. of Galway. The families of Barna, Cartron, Clough, Drimcong, Lavally, Lydican, Moycullen, Rathglass, and Shannonbridge, in County Galway, Duras in County Clare, and Ballycurren, Castlecarra or Balla, Clogher and Partry in County Mayo, are now the principal of the name. the Galway Blazers connection,(Possibly Charles lynch of Ballycurrin or Charles lynch of Petersburg. Also ref to Patrick Lynch who was married to Charles Lynch's sister Alicia) Local history from the Act of Union to the Famine . 27 October 1843 (Connaught Ranger) “Loyal repeal association . We held in Shruel on yesterday the Mayo arbritation court, I had the honor of presiding and was associated with Mr. Hunt of Riverview and Mr. Lynch of Ballycurren castle,1st cousin of Charles, who, in the absence of that gentleman, was unanimously selected by the people, and whose acting, though not yet published, we consider quite in conformity with the declaration made by the liberator in his speeches explanatory of the arbritation system…..however, on yesterday, so perfectly satisfied were the people that one man,who claimed a balance of rent for grazing, said (when we judged he had not established his claim) that so confident was he in the justice of our decision, that if we ruled that he was not entitled to the money he had already received he would restore it on the spot.We attend next Wednesday in Kilmaine, next Thursday in Shruel again and next Saturday in Cong. Mr. Lynch of Ballycurren Castle is nominated by the clergy and the Wardens as a fit person for the neighbouring district.” R.D. Browne A report in the Freemans Journal 15 October 1845 clearly shows that Charles Lynch of Ballycurrin was an ardent supporter of Daniel O’Connell and toasted “the Liberator” when he visited Mayo in 1845. See when Ballycurrin burnt down in 1914 a large painting of Daniel O'Connell was removed with the other contents.

He has given the free use of grounds adjoining Ballycurran Castle for the players and spectators. We cannot too earnestly comment the patriotic conduct of Mr Lynch who has given free access to his lawn to the Gaelic football players of his parish and who has undertaken in person the duty of organising the club and instructing the players.
