Lanmeur (Breton: Lanneur) is a commune in the Finistère department of Brittany in north-western France.

A hamlet in the commune called Kerouac (Breton: Kervoach) has been established as the source of the name of the American writer Jack Kerouac.[1] A street in Lanmeur has been named rue Jack Kerouac,[2] and in March 2010 a first Jack Kerouac Festival took place in the commune.[3]

Population[edit]
