With other than the names to go on these are the only Duggan's in Ballinasloe Town..1901..(With the names you mention I think they may be yours..) Think the Kieghrey is more than likely "Keeley"

Duggan Margaret(34) charwoman/married
Martin(15) printer-
Anne Keely(28) boarder/married/charwoman

Thank's for your help, everyone with your posts.

I have checked all the 1901 and 191 censuses and irish parish records online.

Next step is a trip to the mormon centre to see if I can get hold of an irish civil registration of BMD index.

Thank you!
