I have a PATRICK O'DONNELL born in August 1879 in Kilmovee, County Mayo who married ELLEN GRAY in Holy Cross RC Church, St Helens, Lancashire in September 1909.
I have been unable to find them on the 1911 Census around the area of St Helens.
I have found some children to O'DONNELL-GRAY namely Nora born in Sept Qtr 1911, Winifred born March Qtr 1917 & Agnes born June Qtr 1919 and they were all registered in Prescot, Lancashire.
I would be pleased if someone could find PATRICK & ELLEN in the 1911 Census.
I have searched on O'Donnell, McDonnell & McDonald.

Thank you very much for finding Ellen O'Donnell with her mother Ellen Gray. I have found them on Ancestry now.
I had found that Patrick O'Donnell with Margaret Gray but wasn't sure if that was him as I knew he had married Ellen.
That does look like him-he was born in County Mayo.
I don't know why Ellen & Patrick are living separately but it looks like them.
I found Ellen with her mother and sister Mary in 1901. They are living in Salisbury Street, St Helens and her mother is an Inn Keeper.
Thanks again
Pat Berry

Patrick could have been lodging seperately during the week just to find work whilst Ellen stayed with her mother

Good Luck Kay
