A daughter of Maggie and her husband, Denis, entered the convent, becoming Sr. Mary of Perpetual Help but I do not know which one. She lived in Birmingham, England.

Marriage Notes:

According to church records Denis and Maggie were related. The script is difficult to decipher but it appears they were related "in tertio et quarto gradu". This would make them second cousins once removed, probably through Margaret's mother, Ellen Collins.

They had the following children.

Margaret WALSH died. Margaret married Maurice LYONS.

They had the following children.

  F i Hanora LYONS was born on 26 Oct 1912. She died on 3 Dec 2001.

Denis MCENERY [Parents] was born about 5 Jan 1840 in Tubbertureen, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 7 Jan 1840 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 10 Jun 1891 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Denis married Mary MORAN on 2 Mar 1867 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Denis died of spinal sclerosis aged 51. After his death the occupier of his land as listed in Griffiths Valuation was changed to "reps. of Denis McEnery" in the revision book of 1893, and in 1900 the farm was formally divided into three parts. Mary Hudson, the widow of Denis's brother Michael, occupied 140 acres, with the represenatatives of Denis holding 173 acres, along with the remaining 372 acres of bog. Then, in 1901, Mary Moran, Denis's widow, became the occupier of all three parcels of land. However, it appears that Michael's widow and her family continued to live on their own farm.

Mary MORAN [Parents] was born about 1839 in probably Kealod, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died in probably 17 March 1916 in probably Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Mary married Denis MCENERY on 2 Mar 1867 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Mary is listed as Mary D. McEnery in several documents. It is likely that the D stands for Denis, her husband, to distinguish her from another Mary McEnery in the same townland, i.e., Denis's brother Michael's wife, who appears to have been known as Mary M. McEnery, with the M presumably standing for her husband.

A copy of a death certificate has been located for a Mary MacEnery of Toberatooreen (alternative spelling of Tubbertureen) who died of gastroenteritis on 7 March 1916 aged 75, the informant being her son Denis. The only Mary McEnerys of a similar age living in Tubbertureen at that time - that we know of - with a son named Denis, were Mary Moran above and Mary Hudson, wife of Mary Moran's husband's brother Michael. It is thought that this death certificate relates to Mary Moran rather than Mary Hudson, only because Mary McEnery (née Moran) had been removed from official property valuation records in 1918.

Witnesses to the marriage were Patrick Moran and John Stack.

They had the following children.

  M i John MCENERY was born about 21 Apr 1868. He died on 2 Apr 1955.

Thomas MCENERY was born about 17 Feb 1873 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 19 Feb 1873 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 20 Oct 1888 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Going by dates of baptism on the Irish Genealogy website, James appears to have been born just eight months after the birth of his brother Con, which is unlikely.
