I'm searching for a Thomas Bannon born Ireland possibly in Co. Kildare or Dublin circa 1880's - 1890's. His father (parents names unknown) was a gardener who travelled around big estates in Kildare, Dublin & Meath. He was a head gardener. Thomas's known siblings are John (a freelance gardener) born in Co. Dublin, who lived in Drogheda, Co. Louth; Joseph, born in Harbourstown Estate, Co. Meath, who lived in Milestown, Co. Louth (he was a head gardener for the Milestown Estate); Andrew who lived in England, he was in the RAF; Annie Murray, Maria (Mollie) Murphy , born in Co. Kildare, both lived in Drogheda; Clare Neade who live in Williamstown, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath & another unnamed sister married name thought to be Hammond who lived in Balbriggan, Co. Dublin.
Apparently, Thomas could speak several languages & worked in the GPO in London, England. He was also in WW1 & had several medals which were given to his daughter when he died, contact was broken with the family then. Does anyone know of this man or his descendents? I'm willing to share information on the family tree.

Also looking for Thomas's brother Andrew "Pat" Bannon's descendents.
Thanks
