James Walsh's Family

Here is a list of the Walsh family evicted from the cottage in Belcarra in 1886. The Images are of life-sized cutouts in the cottage produced by local artist Bridie Geraghty.

James Walsh (son of John Walsh) married his second cousin Margaret Devaney of Kilnageer (daughter of Michael Devaney) on 2 March 1864 in Belcarra RC Church (witnesses: Edmund Walsh and Mary Stanton) and had the children listed below:

  • Mary Walsh. born 20 February 1865. baptised 26 February 1865 (sponsors: William Fadian and Bridget Gannon).

  • John Walsh. baptised 29 July 1866 (sponsors: Martin Staunton and Bridget Fadian).

  • Anne Walsh. born 19 December 1874

  • Honor Walsh. baptised 11 September 1881 (sponsors: John Groorke and Catherine Groorke). This child must have died in infancy although no death record was located.

  • Bridget "Delia" Walsh. baptised 11 June 1884 (sponsors: William Fadian and Mary Walsh).
