Denis junior died in 1880 but his father Denis senior died in 1855 so before civil registration. His death was reported in an Irish national newspaper -Freeman's Journal  under the name of Mister D O'Brien which would indicate a person of some importance.

The 1882 death was the grandson.
O'Brien, Horan, Neary (Co. Roscommon, Co Clare, Shropshire and Wrexham)
Dolan, McGovern, McGrail (Co. Cavan, Co. Leitrim and Worcester USA)

Trying to find the source, Irish Microfilms Ltd, the person in Ancestry got the name incorrect.
Ancestry has this

I'm not getting anywhere with Irish Microforms Ltd
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

There is simply no basis for the "Esquire MD" addition to 15,500+ entries on Ancestry.
 - Pure invention?
 - Fantasy?
 - Incompetence?

Whatever the reason, OP has wasted time on this, as it eliminates the supposed link between two Denis O'Briens.

It must have come from somewhere.

It can come from a fevered imagination. It can come from incompetence. Ancestry is littered with inaccuracies: dreadful, error ridden indicies, family trees which should win awards for inventive fiction.
So no, it did not have to come from anywhere meaningful.
