A family reunion to remember

It was definitely a night of getting to know each other with some families travelling as far as America for the very successful Lynch Clan Gathering on Saturday night.

Up to 120 descendants of Timothy and Nora Lynch from Stacks Mountain, Kilflynn from the 1850s onwards, met and got to know each other in the Listowel Arms Hotel where they enjoyed a meal followed by entertainment by not one but two bands for the night.
