Fred Duffy was a member of the R.I.C. Origionally from Elphin in Roscommon, Ireland, we believe he brought his family to Steele's Terrace in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland. It is known that he had a son Fred and another son John (known as Jack), and two daughters there. John "Jack" Duffy never married and spent his life in Steele's Tce. with his mother Mary. His son Fred Duffy, a schools inspector, married Mary Russell and in Liscannor where they lived they had two sons. It is believed his first son, Fred, died in infancy, possibly even before he reached his first birthday. His second son, Fiachra, was born in 1935 (January 12th) and died in 1987 in Dublin. Fiachra's father Fred died in 1937. Fiachra's mother Mary Duffy Nee Russell married Kevin Collins a few years later.
Fiachra Duffy (Fiachra S. Ó Dubhthaigh 1935 to 1987) was my father and I am interested in finding out more about our family's history.
