Hi. Can anyone help me? I am looking for information on my maternal Grandmother, Ann Maria Keane. My Uncle said she was from County Roscommon, but they also spent a few years in County Mayo when she was a small child.
The family came over to Leigh in Lancashire when she was young, where her younger brother John was born. She married Vincent Evans. I believe she was married a few times and she had 7 children in total. She lived in Leigh in Lancashire, Carlisle in Cumbria and Nottingham.
She then came back to Ireland with her last husband and died in hospital in Dublin May 1989 aged 49. If anyone could help at all I would be extremely grateful, as I don't even know the names of Ann's parents. I am hoping there may be some of Ann's cousins or other relatives still knocking around who can help. Thank you

I am married into the Gallagher family of Kilmore, Athleague, Roscommon and we have cousins who are named Keane. There are also Keane families from Roscommon, Ireland living near us in Weybridge, Chertsey, Addlestone, Surrey.

Hi! I have spent a lot of time researching Ireland for my own family although, mainly in Ulster. One thing that I have found very important in trying to track someone down is that religious denomination is really important. Churches contain a ton of records depending on what beliefs they followed. Do you have a clue as to what she might have been? Or, what her husband's name was?
