Her name was Sheila Dunbar nee O'Hanlon, married to William Dunbar and lived in Belfast. My mother was born in Belfast in 1920 in the City Hospital

I looked on the ccensus, parish registers & BMD indexes and could find no trace of her. Could Sheila be a nickname, or a variant of Cecilia?

The Irish BMD index on has a birth of a Cecilia O'Hanlon in Oct-Dec 1894  in the Lurgan civil district which is very close to Moy (17 miles). This Cecilia (or Celia) O'Hanlon appears on the 1901 and 1911 census with her parents Hugh (b 1838) and Sarah Ann (b 1861).
