Alot of secrets seem to be coming out since my father John Murphy husband to Kathleen keating? Her mothers maiden name is moore of creatty yard carlow. according to my birth certificate. I know my father was the result of the rape of his mother Francis o'brian who married a frank o'brian to save her good name, but th child John was sent to live with another family called the murphy just down the road which could be any god forsaken road! So it's any ware between Carlow,cork,Kilkenny. We as 3 boys were raised by nuns in st Josephs convent Kilkenny and spent wonderful weekend with the farming familys the condon.s
My dad was in the Congo war and when back was a changed man but continued his love of drums,drink,singing, but sadly not his boys. Mark/Conor/Simon

Hi Simon

Welcome to the community boards

Your post is a little confusing (for me anyway!) what is it you are trying to find?

We need dates/names/places and something 'specific' to search for
