Thank you for your reply on My Heritage and.... if I'm not mistaken... you're my cousin! Your mum is Rita (my dad's sister) and your dad is Brian.
If I am right I'm really pleased to be in contact with you as I haven't seen you for more than 50 years. I hope your mum and dad are OK. I don't get much news from the family in England. I'm in New Zealand as your mum will know.
Thank you for replying. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a connection because we have no Barnabus in our family tree and also (so far) no connection with Ireland. The name SANDS does occur in Ireland and several regions of England also.
