Trying to trace my Birth Mother

Any help much appreciated

By John Bannon

I'm trying to trace my birth mother.

Her name was Mary Finn, parents William and Helena Finn.  Helena was a nurse original from Clare.

Mary moved to Dublin around 1957 and gave birth to me at St.Patrick’s, Navan Road, Dublin. She was discharged in 1959 and married a Laurence Mc Namee in 1965. They had 3 children, Laurence died in 85 and Mary passed away in 2005 after spending a number of years in a nursing home.

Mary's mother and father were William and Helena Finn; they lived in Ballinrobe, County Mayo.

Any help can your readers can give me would be great regarding her background and family and much appreciated.
