An 87-year-old former milk man from Newry has been proven to have fathered over 1,109 illegitimate children after DNA tests were carried out over several years.
The investigation that has gathered thousands of DNA samples and testimonies over a 15-year period ultimately proves the man is the father to literally thousands of illegitimate children in the region.
He told us:
“Contraception wasn’t very popular in those days. I have nothing to be ashamed of. The 60s were the good old days and I did a great Elvis impression which played out real good with the ladies.
