Looking for ANY information or any leads on a Mary Copeland or Copelands in general from the Wicklow area. I have my grandmothers birth cert, her name was Ellen. Birth name Copeland. She was born in October, 23rd, 1919 in Union Hospital, Rathdrum (also a workhouse then..?) The fathers name is not listed on the birth cert, very unfortunately.
If anyone has any records or leads on the Rathdrum work house in Wicklow from back in those days I would be very much grateful. I have a Mary Copeland listed in the 1918 Shillelagh work house, briefly in early 1918 I believe.
Copeland is a rare enough name from back then to raise some eyebrows when it appears.
My grandmother Ellen went on to marry a Frank Kelly and they lived in Newtownmountkennedy, Wicklow.
