Chris strikes gold in his search for Irish family

Chris Smith is continuing his quest to find his Irish ancestors and he’s struck a pot of luck.

Last year, Chris told his mother he’d be coming to Ireland to trace the roots of his highly regarded great-grandfather Kyran.

True to his word, Chris is in Kilkenny to discover his roots.

“We came across four baptism records.”

Marie reveals why Kyran would have left his homeland for Australia and gives Chris the piece of news he’s been waiting for.
