Hi Globet,
I'm very interested in this Industrial School in Dundrum as some of my relations were also put in there due to family circumstances.  Do you have any more info on school?  or who to contact to find out any info there may be in registers etc?  Life must have been very difficult and lonely for the children.
Thanks  :)

I was in dundrum from i1945 till 1960let me know if I can help.

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm just doing some research for a lady that was there in the 50's. I'll give them a call & see what I can find out.

I was in the convent from 1945 -1960, let me know if I can help.

Hi everyone, I am trying to find out some information about my mother Mary Kelly, born in 1931 and was possible brought up in the orphanage in Dundrum. I know she was confirmed in Knockavilla in May 1946, sponsored by Mrs J Gleeson. Sadly my mother died in 1968 when I was only 8 yrs old and we have only just found some certificates following my father's recent death. Any possible leads will be gratefully received.

Welcome to RootsChat Bazza,
Unfortunately most of the people on this thread don't appear to have logged on here for quite some time.

You say Mary might have been in Dundrum, does that mean you are sure she was in care but are not sure where?
This link explains who holds care records
http://www.historyireland.com/volume-22/sources-children-institutional-care-ireland-1840s-1990s/
There is a phone number at the bottom of the link for AIRR, they should be able to tell you who to contact.
You can read about the AIRR project here
http://www.eneclann.ie/archives-records-management/case-studies/dept-health-children/

Do you have your parents marriage cert, it should have Mary's father's name, if she was in care due to the death of both parents their death Certs should be here https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp
Or was she in care because her mother was unmarried in that case was she adopted?

Hi, Thanks for your quick response. There is no father listed on my mother's birth certificate. But on her marriage certificate a John Kelly is listed as her father. We think a father was listed to save embarrassment as no one knows about a John Kelly. As I might of mentioned, my mother died in 1968 when I was 8 and my father remarried 3 yrs later. Family legend is that Mum grew up in an orphanage and Dundrum was suggested earlier today as she was confirmed in Knockavilla in 1946. It was only after my father's recent death that certain documents & certificates came to light. She was baptised in Thurles within 2 weeks of her birth in May 1931. We have no record of what happened to her mother, also Mary Kelly. I will certainly continue with the line of enquiry you have suggested, many, many thanks.
