|I am researching the origins of the Keating family of Ireland, particularly the branch related to Samuel Keating (1923-1999) who was born in Dundalk but who who lived most of his early life in Portlaoise, outside of Dublin, before moving to England in the early 1950's. |
My branch of the family appears to be centred in the northern part of the island of Ireland, around Dundalk and the County of Monaghan. There are also unsubstantiated links to a number of Keatings (circ.1860) centred in the North of Ireland in the seaside village of Donaghadee and in the County of Monaghan town of Clones. Samuel is a family naming tradition.
Any help would be appreciated.
