Wow !  I'm overwhelmed with replies - thanks very much - but links from yourself and hallmark send me to the Irish Genealogy site which shows me a blank screen and asks me to solve a captcha (whatever that may be)
It's security to ensure you're a genuine person and not a "bot" or something harmful. Sometimes, if I 've been on that site for a while, I'm asked to do another test to show it's still me who's using the site.

I am curious to know how most of the Farrell children ended up in an orphanage in Sligo (Banada Convent near Tubbercurry)
It would appear that Grandad,  James Farrell and Grandmother,  Catherine must have both died within a very few years of the 1911 Census and within a short while of each other
I am aware that that period of Irish history was one torn by conflict and I did wonder if the events are related?

If the death I found for a James Farrell, cooper, in 1931 is correct one then perhaps it was only the mother who died when the children were young. In that case James was probably unable to look after such a large family on young ones and the family were split up.
Would be nice to find death for Catherine Farrell to fill in more of the family story. Perhaps she died away from home.
Do you know when children went to Banada Convent and their names? I'm wondering if perhaps some died young and/or were taken in by relatives or friends.

Another child, Agnes, born 13 June 1914 so Catherine was still alive up until that point.

Possibly twin daughters, Nora and Minnie, born 6 Dec.1911 (father Farrell, mother Brennan, Swinford district) but correct image doesn't seem to be attached  :-\

Baby Minnie died at one day old https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1911/05379/4500774.pdf

If Delia (10 in 1911) was Bridget - Delia often used for the name Bridget- there is a possible marriage in 1926 to Martin Groarke

This is probably not Nora's death, living Carrowkeel, Bohola.

1911 shows John and Bridget Farrell in Carrowkeel. They have a daughter, ‘Onnie’ born 1913 who may be Nora  :-\

Once again I am overwhelmed at the time and effort of the various posters helping me in this  endeavour
At this point then, we have twelve children, and to the best of my knowledge,  many of the young girls ended up in Banada convent (Abbey) in Co. Sligo (not a very nice place to be by all accounts - and certainly according to my mother!)
Of the family that I know  -  Uncles Tom and Pat and my mother  Mary and Auntie Mag (Margaret and possibly Nora) came to live in Bradford.
Annie (Anna Maria) and Agnes went to live in Leeds.  Agnes was the youngest and survived until just a few years ago (and remained single all her life) Annie returned to Tourlestrane (Banada) and married the local cobbler (Jim Fleming) quite  late in life.   I used to go down and visit her at weekends when I was working in Derry
I gather the Sisters of Mercy (the Order that looked after the children) have retained the records for Banada and that will be my next stop
My best wishes to all those that have proven so unstinting in their help
