Trying to find my fathers branch in Ireland. I’ve gotten stuck and can’t get beyond my great great grand father. John Delaval Kirwan. The only info I have is his name and limerick Ireland as a birthplace. He married Alice Hanrahan. His son is Delaval Francis Kirwan born in 1884 in Waterford. Delaval married Edith or Ethel Mabel Baldock (1886-1972) She was born in South Africa.
