Keyser's Hill is an old and quiet part of Cork. Paddy O'Flynn, one of the last of the inshore fishermen who fished in Cork Harbour, lived at number six. He was a familiar and much-loved figure in the French's Quay & Crosse's Green area. Paddy could be seen walking his dogs and mending his boats until weeks before he died on 1 February 2004.
Paddy's great-grandfather Peter Fahy established a commercial inshore fishery on French's Quay in 1850. Paddy and his brother Mick were both fine sportsmen who rowed with the now-defunct St. Finbarr's rowing club. The O'Flynn family had the task of retrieving bodies from the River Lee. With Paddy O'Flynn's death, a link with Cork's sporting and industrial past was broken.
