My father & his siblings had a sad & difficult childhood. William their father - died in 1922 - they were placed in orphanages for the next 4 years until they were returned to their mother's care. Shortly after - she died in a railway accident. Catherine Rose now aged 19 years, was able to care for her younger siblings & kept them together from that time on.
Unfortunately they grew up with little knowledge of the large extended family of Kenihans.
