Hmmh 11 still living is a bit strange ..
Known children 7 - Ellen 1864, Francis 1866, Catherine 1868, Mary 1870, John 1872, Michael 1878 and Bridget unknown. So the others could have been born before Ellen.
I thought I had them in 1901 but I can't find it. The mother - Bridget is 73 in 1911 so born 1838.

Wow yes that looks like them, but I don't think I had that .. I had the other family at Ballaghbehy Dromtrasna which was the wrong family.
Aren't the ages amazing .. and we have two more daughters .. so that is 9 children now, maybe the other 2 were older .. I wonder if earlier census survived that had Patrick. It is interesting that they are O'Connor on the Census .. but those early births were Connors no wonder we couldn't find them ..

"Census finder" doesn't show any surviving pre-1901 census for Limerick.

I will have to get that marriage Kate as that is sure to be them.
Very sad about those earlier census, so much was destroyed that I am amazed what you have found.
I am thinking that maybe Ellen was older than Mathew and lopped 5 years off her age.
Married 1858 and so prolific with her babies, it is most likely she had 2 before Ellen in 1864.

There is a Hanora O'Connor born 30 April, 1875, Limerick. Parents are Patrick and Bridget.

I would have expected to have seen a son named Patrick in the brood. Off to look.

There is another O'Connor Limerick family at Ballaghbehy (Dromtrasna) Limerick who are red herrings Shona
in 1901 - Patrick 62 farmer, Bridget 60, Timothy 29 Annie 27 John 26 Nora 24 and Bridget 22 - I think maybe Hanora born 1875 is the Nora 24 in 1901?
then in 1911 -John P 37, Margaret 34 (wife) Patrick 4 Bridget 1 with Patrick 72 (retired farmer) Bridget 73.
They were leading me astray for a while lol Julie
