How do you pronounce your maiden name? Is it related to DANAHY and variants. My John DANAHY, son of Michael and Hanorah, left Kerry in 1856, at age 18, to Boston, in the company of William and two Mary's. Born in 1838 and died in Hopkinton MA

Is this your family/:
Good morning from Australia
I am seeking assistance in tracing an O'RIORDAN family whose origins go back to County Kerry Ireland. My request is due to a descendant Philip John O'Riordan asking my help in trying to trace his family lines back.

Philip has given me some of the following details:

His parents Peter Anthony and Sylvia Yvonne O'Riordan (nee Ford) imigrated to Australia with their three chidlen in 1965.

He knows very little about his families origins and would like to learn further on his Irish ancestry.

One point of interest that he has been told by his father is that Philip's grandfather was John O'RIORDAN a well known Irish Gaelic footballer and held the position of goalkeeper for a County of Kerry team.

For reason's unknow it appears Peter Anthony O'Riordan moved to Derby the place where he and Sylvia were married on the 16/8/1958 at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Derby. Peter at this time gives his occupation as labourer mineral water manufacturer and his father John's occupation as labourer.

I apologies for not having any earlier knowledge of this family and would appreciate any assistance at all.

Sincerely

Good afternoon Gillian I am a researcher who has been asked by Philip John O'Riordan to trace his family line back to Kerry, Ireland. Philip's father was Peter Anthony O'Riordan who married Sylvia Yvonne Ford on the 16/8/1958 at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Derby UK.

Peter and his family arrived in Australia in 1965 and Philip works with my son and asked if I would trace his family for him.
