I strongly believe that my wife Eileen TAYLOR nee KEOGH is the the daughter of the Michael KEOGH that you seek. Michael was the second eldest of seventeen siblings, all, with the exception of Patrick were born in Kilkenny City. Patrick was born nearby in Callan in 1899. Michael was born 23rd May 1901 Kilkenny, Co.Kilkenny. About the age of thirteen years Michael went to live with his aunt Mary RYAN nee KEOGH in Wales. When about seventeen years he joined the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, served in India and left the army when the Dublin Fusiliers were disbanded in 1922. He migrated to Adelaide, South Australia as a single man in 1924. He worked as a labourer and a rigger. During WW2 he served in the RAAF as an aircraftsman. He married in 1929. He and his wife Eileen had three children. Eileen died in 1958, he died in 1971. Two of their three children still live. Daughter Eileen lives in South Australia and daughter Colleen in Victoria. I have information dating back to Michael's grandfather circa 1851, together with details regarding most of the seventeen siblings.
Please what is your interest in Michael?
