Confirmation.  ;)

A transcript of the Ballinasloe RC parish record of the marriage between Martin Walsh and Bridget O'Connor on 9 October 1886 identifies both parents for bride and groom, namely:
- Patrick and Mary (Gorman) Walsh;
- Robert and Hannah (Duggan) O'Connor.

A transcript of the St. Peter's Athlone RC parish record of the marriage between Patrick Hogan and Anne O'Connor on 28 January 1897 identifies both parents for bride and groom, namely:
- Daniel and Mary (Gately) Hogan;
- Robert and Honor (Doogan) O'Connor.

There is a death in Athlone 1886 - Robert Connor, married, labourer.
Unfortunately the informant is from the Workhouse.
Robert is described as a labourer on some records.

May be just coincidence though.

They also had daughter Mary in Thurles, Jan 1877
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1877/03022/2107557.pdf

Does it say that the informant was Ellen O'Connor, present at birth, Quarry St?

There is a death registration in Thurles in 1877 of a Hannah O'Connor.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FR1F-X4W

Age is only 34. Mention it because there were not so many with the Connor name in Thurles in the indexes.
Irish Genealogy says death was in Q1, but of course no image (hopefully be one soon!)

Agree Jon, it says Quarry St and the informant is Ellen O'Connor.

It may actually have been called The Quarry back in 1877.

Thank you, KG.
Well I think then Ellen may well be another child of Robert and Hannah, and a very young informant!
I am also worried that mother Hannah is that 1877 Thurles death :(

Annie, 16, in the 1891 census in England could be the sister we have previously looked for and born Hannah in 1874. Though we know she married in Ireland in 1897.
