Yes, I saw that but perhaps he was the brother of William and Elizabeth?
Do you have a likely year of birth for Mathew?

Do you have his fatherís name from his marriage?

There is a photo of his memorial stone via Family Search which shows his death 1942 aged 73 yrs

This leads to a possible birth here -William Mahody - residence Loughill

And this baptism - Ballinalee
