About the John V. O'Connor Collection

'This collection is comprised of the papers of the O’Connor and O’Neill families. The papers were retained and collected by Sean O’Connor in the course of his work on constructing the O’Connor family tree as well as writing his memoir Growing Up So High (2013). Sean O’Connor was born in 1938 at 15 Francis street, Dublin. He attended school at St. Francis’ street Christian Brothers School, and went on to qualify as a chartered Engineer (1971), a Fellow of the Institute of Structural Engineers (1973). Sean also became a member of the Irish Bar (1985), after qualifying as a Barrister-at-Law. Despite Sean O’Connor being so called on his birth certificate, he is also known as John Oliver and works professionally under the name John Vincent. He is known as Sean by his family, therefore is that name that is used throughout this collection. The collection contains all the documents of the O’Connor and O’Neill families accumulated by Sean.
