Sir Richard Hely Lynch-Blosse, 17th Baronet of Oxfordshire launched the historical novel, Spellbound by Sibella, by Emeritus Professor Paul B McNulty and published by Club Lighthouse CLP, Canada in the The Campus Bookshop, UCD, Belfield, Dublin 4 on Thursday, 7th November.
Spellbound by Sibella – A tale of her intriguing relationship with Sir Harry Lynch-Blosse, 7th Baronet of Mayo.
“Following the successful launch of Spellbound by Sibella in Dublin, Galway and Castlebar, many have asked me where I found the story.
The answer is quite simple. I found it when researching the Genealogy of the Anglo-Norman Lynches who settled in Galway. Because of the interest displayed, I have now published that background research on Amazon.co.uk and on Amazon.com which you may wish to consult.
The research reveals how the Anglo-Norman Lynches are linked to famous people using pedigree sheets and a database of more than 2800 individuals. Che Guevara and Bram Stoker are not the only celebrities identified – the list also includes James II, Richard ‘Humanity Dick’ Martin, Grace O’Malley, Patrick Sarsfield and Thomas Michel Lynch of Bordeaux, the founder of the Michel Lynch wine brand.
