    If John is a brother, I think he must be younger again, and not seen in the records thanks to the 100 year rule.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] It seems as though Sallypark was a little community located near the railway station that seems to have been demolished at some stage. The 25" OS map shows a street with houses on both sides & an RIC barracks, but the location now seems to only be the R448 Road & some industrial buildings. Maybe someone with a better knowledge of Waterford history can tell us about what happened to this community.

    Searching the 1911 census for Townland/street "Newrath Road" finds 373 people, and I count 80 railway workers (there is also an RIC barracks at #66). Browse here.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley I sorted that list by age & it was a very young community - Approx 100 under 11s, another 100 between about 11 & 24, the next 100 sorted by age bring you up to age 42 and only about 30 or 35 in the over 60 age group.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/bernardhealy] Daniel Jr. died of TB aged 34, so born in 1918? I don't see a birth record. Here he is getting married to Catherine Mary Morrissey in 1943, just 3 years before this picture - so the children in front are not his. He was also a railway worker, a CIE ticket inspector.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ There is a sister Esther as well, married to Jack Furlong. I can’t find her birth or marriage record. Maybe the family lived in Britain for a while.
