  • Hi Mary

    Unfortunately very few Irish people access the site to find relatives from o/s who may be related.

    However the irish phone book has 1 O'Brien in Summerhill to whom you could write.

    I am not permitted to give you his details on the site; if you google 11850 directory enquiries and select people search the enter O'brien and Summerhill you'll find him

    There are also another 60 O'Briens in Meath.

  • Hi Brittany. I hope you recieved my last message telling you how I fit into the O'Brien family tree,I never thought that the O'Brien family tree was so big.

    I have never made contact with other family members on this site before the reason for  asking if you had recieved my last message.

  • Hi Mary, 

    Yes I did receive your message. It's such a big tree isn't it! Me either! I found your post on this website after researching for further information about Garrett. 
     I have emailed the email address you gave, and sent over some information I have found. I just actually found Garrett's death certificate so I'll send that over right now!
