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.

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.

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
