Dunne family Athy early-mid 1900's
« on: Friday 12 March 10 18:55 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to find some descendants of the Dunne family from Athy.  My mother, Kathleen nee Cowlard, is the daughter of Esther (Essy) Dunne who died when Kathleen was 7 years old (1941). 

Esther's brothers were Paddy, Christopher, Richard and Jack Dunne. My mother lost contact with the Dunne side of the family after the death of her mother. 

We are looking for surviving relatives now in the hope that they may have some family photos that would include Esther and possibly even my mother and her brother, Harry, and sister, Birdie. Kathleen only has 2 photos of her mother but is aware that there were a number of photos taken at that time.
