The Marie Celine Nursing Home, Summerhill, was a privately run nursing home, catering for maternity patients, as far as I know. It closed many years ago & I don't think there are any records available.

Hi there,
Not good news I'm afraid. The matron of the Marie celine was my great aunt, may griffin, and I too was born there as were all my family. May died in the 1970 s and when the house was sold, all the records were burnt. Apparently someone in the family decided that no good would come of the information coming out. Those were different days and there would have been a lot of secret adoptions.
There is a member of the family who was a midwife there and is now almost 80 but may be able to help you though unlikely that she would remember. But she might be able to tell you at least something abut the home and how your birth might have been.
I have told her about your post and she was interested and very sad that there are no records any more.
Maybe you might contact me through here and let's see if there is a way to set up a phone call? Obviously confidentiality for all is important, so maybe contact the moderator here who might be able to contact me?

I too may have been born there and I have no record of my birth. Through DNA I have established who my bio parents were. I have met cousins, they are all from Cork. Both parents dead now, but I believe the sister in law of my mother worked there late 40s/ 50s. Please any information would be grateful. Also does anyone know what the name of the local parish church was as this would have been usedfir baptism. Thank you in advance

Hello Persian my husband was born there in 1949 and baptised as far as I am aware in St Patricks Church Glanmire Road. Good luck searching
