Hi Raine,
Sorry for delay in replying. Internet problems!
It looks like your husband and I are second cousins. Lanigan was my mother's grandfather. I was born and grew up in Wexford and now live about an hour away. My sister is our "expert" on family and relations.
I cannot send any emails at this time as yr email address was blocked by rootschat. It is only possible after we exchange a number of messages, so this is a start.

HI Raine,
Capt. Tom or Lanigan Walsh lived in No.3 William Street, Wexford. His son Joe (a lighthouse keeper) & wife Lizzie and family later lived in No 1.  However, they have all moved from the Street now and N0. 3 was a B&B.  My late Aunt Kitty and her cousin Mary from Africa stayed  there some years ago while Mary was on a visit to Ireland. I think that would have been in the 1980's.   Lanigan was married to Mary Codd, 1st cousin of the mother of well known song writer Thomas Moore. There is a small booklet on the seafaring families of Wexford and a number of the Walsh family are mentioned in it, including my grandfather Pat. However I do not have a copy of it. My late Aunt Kitty,knew and was in touch with members of the family in Africa while she worked on the Cunard Liners that visited there and her daughter has met members of Alice's family while there a few years ago.

Hi Raine,
I forgot to mention in my last email that Lanigan also had a son Willie (William) who lived with his wife Maggie in The Faythe in Wexford Town with their family.  I only knew one Fr. Pat (A P.P. in Bolton, England.) but there were other boys in the family.  Lanigan had daughters also but I did not know them.  My Mother went on holidays as a child to cousins nearby in Swan View.  They may have been the Hogans. I had an uncle Billy a seaman, who was drowned age 21 in Argentia. I have a first cousin Billy and The Irish Olympic Boxing Manager is also another Billy in the family.
I spoke with my cousin Terry in England last week and told her of this website.  She has visited Alice's family in Capetown and still has contact with them.  Another counsin's husband has done a Family Tree which I have.  I will be in touch again.
