The story is that the parents died and the girls were put in the orphanage at Tinahely the father is named as Michael on Kate Kearns marriage 1921 to William Whelan the marriage is at Moone RD Church
Yes of just seen area of Avondale. Oh sorry Michael is described as a labourer.

Many thanks Kiltaglassan for putting up the advertisement wasn't sure how to post it lol.
Sinann yrs I'd seen James & John on census but also saw petty court records Familysearch  which links to Findmypass it shows a John Kearns under 14yrs has assaulted Kate Kearns at Rathdrum he is sent away to an Industrial School St Joseph's Athlone until 1917
Kate Kearns is also sent away too Summerhill for girls Athlone her date until 1918 Cricky I'm mega confused now.
Originally I'm told the girls were in orphanage which I accept that may have been a more fanciful way to say rather than I was in the workhouse!
Lucy was said to be 9yrs at time of death but you know it's being to hang together- no mention has be made of brothers but I can't rule them out either.
Ps where is Avondale- is it a place of a home?
Thank you ever do much for your help ☺

Sorry the Rathdrum advertisement is 1910.
And should read Kate Kearns age doesn't match.
Seems I'm confusing myself and aiming to confuse all the Rootchatters too lol

Cheers thanks. I found a death for a child with the name l looking for Lucy Kearns but she age 3 at death not 9 as my relative told me 😕
I also found an advertisement from Rathdrum Union wanting to board out some children all Kearns surname John aged 11yr 6mth Kate (maybe my grandma) 9yrs 6mtg
James 6yrs 6mths and Lucy 2yrs 6mth.

My grandma born September 1905 so that does match.

Hi Sinann, many thanks for your reply. A family member said our grandmother was placed in the orphanage at Tinahely with her younger sister. The sister died there aged nine.
I thought there may have been in a workhouse in the area - it's all very vague and I don't have dates other than my grandmother was born 1905.
I am interested but will have to think how to pursue any enquiries.

Hi does anyone know if this was just an orphanage or would it have been part of a workhouse.
Many thanks

As I have spent years trying to locate my grandmother birth. I have posted much about her as you can see.
I must now tell you all I have found her Different name how frustrating. ???
How did I find her Irish Newspaper archives.
Many thanks for help both with her and my Aunt who by the way used a surname that's wasn't hers.
Happy Days until I find another issue lol
