He’s just Kev.
He doesn’t have a surname.
I often see him drinking in Bar 51 before an Irish soccer international.
Mystery solved, looks like his name is Kevin O’Connell.
He’s not very google friendly is he? I dedicated way too much time to googling him yesterday and only when you’ve told us his surname can I find one reference to it online.
he’s a coont
Fair play. I cant find anything on him whatsoever. One of the lads here found a thread on some forum about him and thats where we got the name
This is what I found:
right hand column, first paragraph.
I googled the bollix out of him to no avail yesterday too.
bandage you are seriosly fooked up. nobody finds you funny. im gonna hit you a smack
Kev was brillant. He would talk about how everything was deadly or rapid. Tekken 2 on the playstation. Out of this world. ;D
Maps showing the spread of various surnames in the 1901 & 1911 censuses.
If you are not from Tipperary or West Kerry then you have 16 great great grandparents. Very little of your DNA had come from the surname you carry.
Flesh that out…
Your ma got about
I know that maths is not your strong point. You carry an average 6% of your paternal line gg grandfather, whoever he was
How does that change in Kerry/ Tipperary?
Say you mother is a maher, two of your grandparents are maher and seven of you great great grandparents are mahers.
Then you should be going to Dublin to find a mate.
Same holds for O’Sullivan in south and west kerry
