Driscoll/Power births - all in Cardiff

John 1885
Catherine 1887
James 1889

I can’t see a birth for James but there are possible deaths for the other two children soon after birth.

It would be best to get the marriage certificate to check his occupation and father on that.
I presume Ellen is your ancestor? Driscoll and Power are not uncommon names. Do you have her in 1911?

In 1901 there are two other grandchildren with Bridget Power. Have you checked those children? John O’Hara, 5 yrs and Bridget O’ Hara 3 yrs b Waterford.
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Waterford/Portlaw/Carrick_Road/1768438/

I looked and found these births:
John O’Hara 1896 Dungarvan

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1896/02158/1818274.pdf

Bridget O’Hara 1898 Waterford
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1898/02070/1790773.pdf

Both these children have parents Patrick (a Barber) and Mary Power.
Again not uncommon names though.

I can’t find these parents in 1901 nor them and the children in 1911.

Added - sorry I didn’t see the post from Tracey - I just saw it now.
