O'DRISCOLL siblings Mary 1906, Edmund 1909, Cornelius 1913 Ireland to Canada

I am looking for descendants of siblings Mary A born 1906, Edmund born 1909 & Cornelius born 1913 O'DRISCOLL all born in Ireland [possibly Dublin or Co Cork].

This is what I know [and most of this has been courtesy of kind respondents to posts on other boards]: They were children of Jeremiah O'DRISCOLL born 1874 in Clonakilty, Co Cork, son of Cornelius a farmer [and perhaps Norry FALVIE] and Julia ALLEN born 1876 in Hanstown, Co Westmeath daughter of Michael ALLEN and Margaret LYNCH. Julia was the sister of my grandmother.

Julia & Jeremiah married in Dublin in 1905. Julia travelled to Canada on the SS Teutonic in June 1913 with these three children, stating she was travelling via CPR to her husband in Ottawa, Ontario, he being a labourer on the railroad.

Julia died in 1930, witnesses to her burial in St Thomas Aquinas, Montreal, Quebec were Jeremiah & Cornelius. In 1935, Cornelius married Theresa TRAGHEIN [or TRAGHEIM or TRAGHERN] daughter of the late George TRAGHEIN & Mary SHERIDAN, in St Patrick's, Montreal witnesses Edmund O'DRISCOLL & Helen TRAGHEIM [sister of the bride].

Julia states her age as 30 in 1913 so is apparently aged 46 on death; however I have her baptism record and she was definitely born in 1876.

Cornelius lived, according to Lovell's 1978 Directory, at 389 Mountain, Montreal. He was a printer when he married.

I do not know the spouses [if any] of Mary A & Edmund.

An Edmund O'DRISCOLL & Mary Elizabeth Hutchinson had a son baptised at St Thomas Aquinas in 1922, sponsors Charles CAULFIELD & Mrs Charles CAULFIELD [sister of the father]. In 1941 there was a death of an Edward O'Driscoll husband of Mary Hutchinson aged 71 and the witnesses to the burial were Edmund O'Driscoll and Cornelius Leo O'Driscoll. I do not know where these fit in - maybe Edward was a brother to Jeremiah - or maybe another O'Driscoll family altogether?

Any help identifying Jeremiah & Julia's descendants would be gratefully received. Many thanks.
