Breen is a common name in Tipperary
It may be that the girls were sent to live with a relative if their mother died young
Hope the phone call gives you added info to help

Thank you for your help. There wasnt much information after all. I can at least move forward with the keenan/Boylan side. The DNA matches are only as close as 4th cousins, so still lots to work through and hopefully we will find something about Bernadettes dad.
Thanks again.

Anyone with a keen eye could tell me if Thomas's dad is called David or Daniel, what the address is and the parents occupation please. I have spent a while pondering somewhere? somewhere? dublin..not a clue for the 2nd address, nor Thomas's dads occupation.

Thank you

hi Sinnan
I didnt, as it says the name of Thomas breens dad on first certificate to Margaret Keenan. Also I live in Turkey, so its not so easy. I can see why having the egan/Breen certificate would be useful for cross matching and checking names though.

I must have missed a bit, I thought you said Margaret Keenan was incorrect as his first wife was Mary.
