First of all, can you confirm that all the chidren are deceased (as we are not allowed to post details of living people).

Ballinasloe is a town in Co. Galway. It is also the name of a Poor Law Union/Registration District there.

Are you sure of Andrew's birth year? born 1902 and married 1918 would have meant he was only about 16 years old when married.
Here's the family in 1911 census-
www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Antrim/Falls__Belfast_/Albert_Street/180263
Added- there's a birth registration for Andrew Dowds, son of William in 1901.

The online Irish civil registration index goes up to 1958 for the Republic of Ireland. *'s birth is listed (mother Connell) and it is Ballinasloe registration district.
See www.familysearch.org

Hi aghadowey
                      Yes that is andrews family in albert street and he was married very young. I can not confirm as to weahter the children are deceased or not and that is why i didnt put up all of the childrens names that i have.
                        The names of the children that i have are born in Ballinasloe to an andrew and mary dowds nee mc connell.  It is interesting that billinasloe was a poor law union district and now knowing where it is both andrew and mary have moved about abit before they settled down.
                 Thank you for this information

When I asked if the children were deceased I meant the ones you've listed in the first post.

The births are registered with mother's name as Connell in the index.
