Hi de Lourdes
Thanks for taking the time to help with my research. All these small details make a difference, and will help me progress my research. I have attached Patrick's death certificate, so you can see the names of his children. There was a child Mary, so the one you mention could well be Patrick's mother.
It's taken quite some research here in the antipodes to make the connection with Kinvara, but now I have a place I have somewhere to aim for when I come to Ireland. I don't yet have a trip planned and never been to Ireland, but one day I do want to make that physical connection and try and understand why my ancestors came to Australia. I'm thinking the famine must have been a major reason. I have this vision of exploring graveyards and maybe discovering some ancestors that way, but I suppose if they were poor people, there may not even be gravestones.
