Barry Slevin28/09/2011My grandfather and grandmother [ James and Margaret] lived at No 10 North Square, they had 5 boys and 3 girls, one of these was my dad John [Jack]. My grandad was a train driver, one of his sons- Richard was a deisel driver and my dad was a mechanical engineer in the works.
Does anybody have any information regarding the slevin family, or any old photos of them or the area, i should be very grateful for anything, as i am researching the family tree. Barry Slevin

val(Slevin) Nixon28/12/2012my great grand parents was James and Margaret Slevin, he also worked on the railways, I think my grandad patrick is your fathers brother, in the 1911 census they lived at 33 Phoenix st. in the 1901 census they lived at 7 Murray cottages with the inlaws (Connolly) side of the family. the Slevin name was spelt wrong. also found on the web a court report from 1899 in Kildare.
