Well Hello All fellow Glackins - my name is Shane and I come from Malin Head, the Northern most tip of Ireland - on record as where the Glackin clan orginated from.The Glackin family is supposed tohave orginated from a guy who was washed in of one of the Spanish aramdas ships which was wrecked on our shores in the sixteen hundreds. His name was Phelime Dubh (Black Philip!).To cut a long story short, he married a local girl, and basically that it the premise to the Glackin story.
Another story that was related to me by my late grandfather, Patrick Glackin was that the first Glackin family in Malin Head had four sons and they all went to the four corners of Ireland to spread the Glackin trait there.
Me myself, well I work in Derry in the North of Ireland for Seagate Technology as an R&D Administrator, And I am currently doing an MSc in International Business, if there is anyone in the clan that canhelp me with it it would be much appreciated.Also I am for the highjump next June (getting married!!!!!!!!) so I am really looking forward to that!! My finance is Catherine Gannon, from Ballina in Mayo in the west of Ireland. I look forward to some correspondance in due course.
