Hi Jim,

Mary O'Flaherty died in Ballyvanane on 11 Feb 1905 from TB. The informant to the Registrar was "Sarah Reynolds, Nurse of Deceased". Sarah Reynolds was a daughter of Hugh Reynolds and Bridget O'Flaherty.

I've discovered that Bridget and Mary's sister, Ellen O'Flaherty (also a school teacher like Bridget Reynolds)died in the Oughterard Workhouse on 1 April 1905. Cause of death was stated to be "cancer of breast (operation)and cancer of stomach, certified". The informant to the registrar was Isadore Darcy, of Oughterard Workhouse. Her sister Kate O'Flaherty (also a school teacher) married Patrick Connor, son of Thady and Kate Connor of Roscahill on 1 Jan 1885. Although Thady and his wife are recorded in the 1901 Census I can't find Patrick and Kate in the Census.

I believe the Margaret Flaherty who married Rodger Lee was another sister of Bridget, Ellen, Mary and Kate O'Flaherty. Her father's name was given as "Michael Flaherty, Farmer" on her marriage cert and her son Robert Lee (1881-19 Aug 1957)and his wife Julia Lee (1881-20 Jan 1957) named three of their daughters, Margaret Mary, Kate and Ellen which names reflect the names of their grandmother's siblings.

Best wishes.
