Im looking for any information about my great great grandparents Darby and Anastasia HEALY (née Ryan).  They were married in about 1855 and of their children Thomas Joseph Healy, my great grandfather emigrated to Queensland, Australia in about 1879.  Any information would be gratefully received.  I'm Kathleen living in Melbourne Australia.  I'm coming to Ireland in June for the first time to follow my Irish ancestors' stories.  Thankyou for any information.

    Thankyou so much Col.  I did have some of that information but I'd followed a different Anastasia Ryan from the one you mention.  When I do come to Ireland, however, I'm concentrating on the Healy line so my search for Darby Healys birth is obviously my most important quest.            Kathleen                         
    Thankyou for confirming Thomas and Michaels birth dates.
