Not that I know of… he was in both world wars, lost his leg when he was older but still turned out in the pubs in the wheelchair

Are you sure you had no relatives in Haydock?
Old Mrs Kinaie had redish hair, only a small lady, would've been born in the late 1800's. She lived in number 248 Clipsley Lane, Haydock. Had two sons, Tommy and Jackie. The name Mick cropped up too.
Kinane would, of course, been her husband's family name. Just a thought!

I’m not too sure, I’ve only got as far back as my great grandfather Mick Kinane (birth 1900) and my great grandmother Ethel Kinane (birth 1906)
I think there will be some connection with the name Kinane being so rare
