m. 6 May 1872
Facts and Events
Richard Farrell was baptised on 20th April 1846 at Nenagh in County Tipperary, the son of Michael Farrell and Catherine (or Kate) Mackey. The family later moved to Dublin - Richard's marriage record from 1872 says that his parents were living at 1 Astons Quay in Dublin at the time of his marriage. Richard was married on 6th May 1872, aged about 25, to a Margaret Reid, who was 27. Richard had a brother called John, who would go on to marry Margaret's sister Rosanna three years later.
Richard and Margaret had ten children together between 1873 and 1887.
Both Margaret and Richard probably died between 1887 and 1901 - several of their children appear living together in the 1901 census, but there is no sign of the parents, suggesting that the parents had died and the eldest sister was left looking after her younger siblings. It seems most likely that Richard died in 1889, aged about 42.
