Think this is Richard and Ellen's marriage but if it is there is yet another spelling of her surname
Richard Flaherty and Ellen Hashey 1897

Sinann you have had much better success then me at finding my family, I'm 99% sure the Flaherty family on these records are my grandmother 's . I'm going to search using the links some more. Thank you

Patrick is proving more problematic
His family may not have been using the O of O'Shea at the time of the 1911 Census.
I know you said he was born 1900 (that could be a bit out could it?) but he may not have originally been from Carrick on Suir. There is a Shea family at the address he gives on the marriage, they may be relations.

Yes thanks Sinann, I can't find a birth certificate for him, my father passed away last year but my mother is pretty sure he was born November 1900. I've managed to get info on his brother James from the forum but nowhere near as thorough as your links.

I think I found my Grandfather on the census, a boy Patrick Shea named as step son to the fitzgeralds of 1 Kerwans Lane, Carrick on Suir. He did have a brother James which leads me to believe his mother re-married.

I was looking at him but wasn't sure as he doesn't say father deceased on marriage, of course it only says that if the question was asked.
I didn't know he had a brother James at the time of course.
Worth looking at some more.

Yes all very interesting and presently searching the church records to find Elizabeth fitzgeralds marriage certificate  ( to Shea or Fitzgerald). Again thanks for your help and what a superb website.

I may just be clutching at straws but it all seems to fit. The fact she isnt a widow may be a show stopper. I'm new at this and can't thank you enough for your help.
