My name is John Francis Burns and I was born in
Sligo town on 14th August 1951.
My father was also John Burns, born 24/7/21 in Rope Walk, Sligo. When I was born my parents were living at
36 Garavogue Villas in Sligo.
My grandfather was also John Burns, born about 1897 in Sligo? On 19/8/1920, he married my grandmother Catherine (Kate) Moran, in Sligo Cathedral. Her father was Thomas (Tom) Moran and he was married to a Mary Jane McCarrick. They also lived in Rope Walk, Sligo and had a parcel of children.
My great grandmother was Bridget (Beezy?) Burns. She had
my grandfather, also a John Burns, out of wedlock. My great
grandfather - who probably wasn't that great because he didn't marry her - was called CONLON. So, as you can see,
I get my name Burns through the female line.
I would dearly love to find out anything about Beezy Burns
or your man CONLON. Thank you.
