SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Ling: Very rare: Belfast, Derry. Ir. Ó Fhloinn, modern Ó Loinn. An Ulster version of Flynn. It should be noted that an English name Ling, Lyng, also exists, but hardly applies here.
Lyng: Quite numerous: Wexford-Waterford-Kilkenny etc. Ir. Ó Fhloinn. A synonym of Flynn. An English family, of this name, settled in Tipperary in 17 cent, so may have contributed to the present population. See also Lynn.
Ó Lainn: Lyng: líon beag: Loch Garman-Port Lairge. Claochlú ar Ó Flainn, is dócha, ach bhí an sloinne Sasanach, Lyng, ann chomh maith. Tháinig siad aimsir Chromail.
