    Researching my family. My grandmother was Mary Dillon from Waterford and my grandfather was William Kirwan I think originally from Kilkenny. They lived in knockboy in Waterford where my mum Bernadette grew up. She was born on July 23rd 1933. I know very little else. Hope someone can help me. ????????????
