FINAN Family History

Originally recorded as O' Fionnain, and now O' Finan, Finan, Fynan, and Fanning, this is an ancient Gaelic surname. Although Irish it derives from the word "fionn" meaning fair, and whilst widely held to be associated with St Finan, of which more below, it probably indicates a surname of Viking ethnic origins. It is not widely known that much of eastern Ireland was held by the Vikings from about the year 850 a.d. until circa 1000. During this time their capital was Dublin, in fact that name is Norse not Gaelic.

    Hi.. I live in Canada.  My connection to Ireland is through my father's family.   John Finan was born in Bandon, Cork ,Co.   John was married to  Sarah Corbett.   Their daughter Mary Ann would be my great, great grandmother.  She was born at Castlebar, Mayo.  They emigrated to Bytown (Ottawa).

    We are planning on coming to Ireland in the fall of 2023 and would plan on visiting Mayo county??

    Does anyone have a picture of the street sign with our family name on it? My Aunt showed me a picture once, but I would like my own copy and would like to know where it can be found. In case I am fortunate enough to come home for a visit. Thank You
