Daniel Lyons born Galway 1884
« on: Tuesday 15 August 17 22:38 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace family of my Great Uncle Daniel Lyons who married  Mary Meara,  born Tipperary. At one time after marriage they were living in County Kerry but around 1960 were living at 15, Main Street, Templemore, Tipperary.   Daniel was one of ten children born to Michael Lyons and Eliza Farrell, my Grandmother  Mary Ellen Lyons, being Daniel's eldest sister.

Daniel would have been around  76 years of age in 1960.  I do not know if he had children but am hoping so.  Daniel was apparently my Grandmother's favourite brother and I would like to be in touch with family if there or at least find out when he died and any other information regarding the family.

Any assistance that could be given would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

There appears to be at least two children, not all registration districts have mother's maiden name on the index so there could be more.
As they could be living, search here https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1408347?collectionNameFilter=false

Thank  you so much for the information on above.  All refers and particularly
Of interest the  information on two children born. When Daniel and Mary first married they were in County Kerry, do not know for how long but given the dates of birth for the two found in Templemore I wonder if they had earlier children in Kerry before moving to Tipperary.
I have a family photograph and I think the one unidentified person on it might be Daniel. Perhaps a step closer to finding out!

Many thanks indeed for your assistance,  much appreciated.
