Hi
Thank you for replying my grandad was Malachy O donnell (1913 approx year of birth) but we think he used Kelly as his surname and my nanny was Elizabeth McAuley  xxxx

When Malachy married Elizabeth McAuley in December 1935, he did so under the surname O'Donnell, his address in the marriage registration was recorded as 41 Abyssinia Street and his father's details given as John O'Donnell, a labourer. However, the following registration is the closest fit for his birth:

Several local newspapers in the period March-June 1935 carried notices from Dolway Kelly looking for relatives in Montreal, his address was stated as 41 Abyssinia Street.
