Recently I was "Troving" to see if any new information popped up in a search on my KELLY ancestors from Tipperary.
I didn't find anything on them but did come across an interesting article about Ned KELLY'S father "Red" John KELLY.
I wonder if any of his descendants have done a DNA test at all.
My KELLY ancestors came from Dualla which was close by Fethard in Tipperary.
I know it is a common surname there.
I can't get back any further with my line to see if there may be a connection.
Still it was an interesting article.
The Kellys were really only 'social bandits' (1988, September 4). The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 - 1995), p. 22. , from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article102067980
