Welcome to RootsChat
What information are you looking for?
I can see her birth https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1906/01737/1686491.pdf
and siblings
This is the family in 1911

It sounds like you need to work back from your mother rather than forward from Bridget if I'm following you correctly.

The 1911 appears to show, below the paper fold, 11 children born & 8 still living?

I was hoping to get a reply from any relatives and hoping some-one would have a photo of Bridget,

That's possible, it does happen here sometimes, just be sure to update this site if you change your email address as it has been known to take years for a relation to show up.

Good Luck.
