Kilflynn

Kilflynn is a very pretty village, situated 2.5km from the main Tralee-Listowel road and perched on a green hillside facing south. It was known in former times as Stackstown. It contains an RC church, and curate's residence. Also protestant church nowclosed for some years, the latter is in the old graveyard. There are two public houses and a supermarket. In the corner of the graveyard lies buried a grand old character, a champion Irish step-dancer and world traveller in his day, Patrick, better known as Putch Wynne. He designed his own headstone and the inscription thereon reads "Here lies the Putch Wynne R.I.P."
