Kevin Battle, originally William Sheehy, was born in a Mother & Baby home in Roscrea in Tipperary but was taken from his mother when he was two to be adopted by a family in New York.

Since then he has tried to trace down his mother, but to no avail.

Last year, however, the 59-year-old discovered the whereabouts of a distant relative living in Portland in Maine by taking an online DNA test his wife bought him for Christmas.

Kevin told the Irish Sun: "My wife bought me a DNA test kit for Christmas. I had looked into it before but I was under the impression that all it was going to do was tell you your ancestry -- which I already knew. I was born in Ireland."

I was married when I met my biological mother , but my wife left a few years later . Even now? I am nearly 60 . What harm would it do? She died in 2011, and last year I located my birth mother through Google.

Thanks to rapid advances in technology, the average person can now use DNA testing to trace his or her own family history. I just scraped the inside of both cheeks for 60 seconds and placed the swabs into separate vials that contained a unique identification number.

“So I set it aside and a couple of weeks went by and my wife asked if I ever did the test so I did it and sent it away.

When the results came back he discovered that his DNA matched with a woman by the name of Lisa Hay, who was also a Sheehy.

He reached out to her and found that he had five half brothers and sisters living in Wales.

Though he also found out that his mother died several years ago, he was thrilled to reconnect with his family and didn't waste a moment to go and visit them.

"“I flew into Heathrow, my brother Tony drove the four hours to London from Wales to pick me up. We drove the four hours back in the car just talking and I spent a week with him and his wife.

“I got to meet my other brother Bernard, and my sister Tina. And another night I got to spend with my sister Tonya. The only one I wasn’t able to meet was my youngest sister Bridie, as she lives in Dubai.” 

Kevin had been a harbourmaster in Portland in Maine and travelled to Ireland before​ in the 80s​ in an attempt to locate his roots.

However, his efforts were cut short by an error contained in the records system, which gave him false information regarding his mother.

This set him back almost three decades in his quest to uncover the true whereabouts of his ​family line.​
