James Maher Tinahely
« on: Tuesday 16 April 19 18:01 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am looking for information please on my Great Grandfather James Maher.
From what i can find he was born in 1891 to James and Mary in Tinahely in Wicklow.
He joined the Army and was stationed in Nenagh where he met my great grandmother Mary Hogan.
They married 16th January 1924 in Youghalarra Church and had 9 children including my grandmother in Newtown just outside Nenagh.
When i looked at James Mahers headstone it said he was born in 1901 which is 10 years after his stated age. His army record also says he was 21 http://census.militaryarchives.ie/pdf/Bushfield_Nenagh_Division_3_Southern_Command_Page_34.pdf
From talking to my mother James had at least 1 brother, Frederick b 1920.
I am trying to get to the bottom of James birth and who his parents are.
From searching around the area there is a James Maher born around 1901 in redbog in Carlow which is not too far from Tinahely I am wondering if i have the incorrect James in my list http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Carlow/Clonmore/Redbog/307940/

regards
Paul

Thank you hallmark,
it looks like the Mahers were actually from Redbog in Carlow rather than Tinahely in Wicklow where I was always let to believe he was from.

He joined the Army and was stationed in Nenagh where he met  great grandmother Mary Hogan.
They married 16th January 1924 in Youghalarra Church and you don't say Who he was son of....so I'm finding one with father Richard and another William as a result!

You need names on Marriage Cert!!
