The John Flanagan farm highlighted on 1829 to 1842 map.

John Flanagan listed at Greenhills, Tallaght, in [Thom's, 1854].

Stubbs connection

These could be related because there is a later Flanagan - Stubbs marriage in 1866:

Vicars' index of wills


All entries for Flanagan (and variants) in [Vicars' index of wills 1536-1810].
Note William Flanagan, "gardener", Rathfarnham, Co.Dublin, will pr 1760. (Similar profile to our family.)
All of these wills were burnt in 1922.


Eamon de Valera's wife

Eoin O'Mahony, the scholar, traveller and amateur genealogist, and friend of Frank Flanagan, claimed that Eamon de Valera's wife was a relation of these Flanagans.
Liam Cosgrave says this is not true: "As far as I am aware the views of Eoin O'Mahoney are based on his vivid imagination which had great flights of fancy".
Think W.T. Cosgrave said "That was the only thing that Dev and I ever had in common, was that we both married Flanagans.".
John Flanagan remembered hearing as a child that De Valera was somewhere in the family tree.

Laurence Flanagan,
of Carbery, Co.Kildare, had issue:
  1. Sinéad Flanagan,
    born 1st June 1878 [grave],
    born Jane or Janice Flanagan, Balbriggan, Co.Dublin,
    mar Eamon de Valera and had issue.
    See DE VALERA in [Burkes Irish, 1976].
    See their grave, Glasnevin (and here and here and here).
    The singer Sinead O'Connor was named after her.
