From Anne:
There is a truly marvellous article on Matthew Kehoe, telling where he lived (squatted) at first and later; how he framed the 
steeple of the Basilica, worked on the doors of the Parliament Buildings, etc.
 
The article says he (one of the "Wooden" Kehoes) came with a brother (I'll have to find him) and sister in 1844. 
The "Iron Kehoes" referred to in the article (John, Thomas, and William) were the Kehoes I sent you the other day, 
and WE know they were from Ballynultagh, County Wicklow, not County Wexford.
 
What an amazing find!
