My great grandmother Elizabeth O'Neill left Ireland for Australia in the 1870s. Her parents were George O'Neill, a bricklayer, and Bridget Maher. A brother possibly, Ernest Albert O'Neill, went to the United States as well circa 1870. Would love to her from any relatives still living in Dublin.

  • Hi there,

    Thank you very much for you message to Ireland Reaching Out.

    Have you checked the follwing documents for possible information about George O'Neill, the bricklayer?
