I am based at Queen’s University Marine Laboratory Portaferry County Down. I noted a couple of times on the pages about TT Flynn that Queen’s University Dublin was given as his place of work – this should be Belfast. He had a holiday home on the west shore of Strangford Lough (still standing). The present QML buildings have expanded greatly since his time in Portaferry. There were some elderly people in Portaferry who told me that Errol used to visit the area while his father was Prof. of Biology in Belfast. Have you any evidence of the son’s visits to Kilklief (holiday house), Portaferry (marine laboratory / classes), Strangford Lough?

Daryl adds in another email to me: “The optimum outcome would be a father/son photograph taken somewhere around Strangford Lough.”
If anyone can help locate such a photo it would, I a sure, be greatly appreciated. An idea they have is to fund-raise for the Errol Flynn Memorial Laboratory… However, “As it stands, we are contemplating renaming some of the present laboratory rooms in the buildings – and as
he [TT Flynn] was our founder, one of them would be the Flynn Lab…”
