Hi Liz, Thank you so much for going to the trouble of providing me with so much valuable information. I certainly have enough to trace him! The Patrick Foley you mentioned, actually I have his death cert. He died 15th April 1887 aged 80. Although he is recorded as married, his death was witnesses by a Mary Dunleavy.There were no Foleys there in 1901.
I'll let you know what I find about your John Droney - it may be a week or so. I'm working on other Droney treads at the moment.
Kind Regards, Oliver
