Ned Kelly and County Down

Ancestry Ireland had an interesting Article on their website about Ned Kelly.I did not know that the Kelly Family came from Banbridge. He was a notorious bush ranger in Australia. Take a look here.


  1. This quote from the Adelaide Advertiser in 1909 is confusing, as the Australian Dictionary of Biography says Ned Kelly's mother Ellen Kelly (nee Quinn) was from Antrim ( and that she and Ned's father, 'Red' Kelly, met in Australia. Red Kelly may have been born in Banbridge.

  2. Maybe they did not meet in Australia for the first time. Antrim is not far from Bambridge which is in County Down
