Hello i'm trying to find any info on the St Patricks Childrens Home which was located in the navan road. I know this was a place for unmarried mothers. This is where my brother, Oliver Dempsey was born 08/10/1950. My mother gave her name as Mary Dempsey although i've reason to belive that the name was false. Her real name was Mary Dobson. She came from westmeath and all i know is that she had a nursing job somewhere in the dublin area. She came to London sometime shortly after my brothers birth, in 1951/52 he was left behind for approx 1yr, who with?. My brother then took my fathers name of griffin, although i don't think my parents married as i can't find anything to prove this. I have so many unanswered questions with regards to my background. I do know that my father is not the same as my brother's. Can anybody help? Thank you Bronwen/
