Hi Anne - many thanks for your post to-day. It was a great surprise. I guess we are related.
I was in Ireland recently and managed to get the marriage cert of my great grandfather, James Doolan born c. 1848 who married Annie Kate Dowling on 29 April 1885. He died before 1922.
As far as I can tell James's brother was Daniel Doolan (born ? died ?, your great grandfather ?)and he married Elizabeth White and they had the 14 children you detailed in your post.
On the marriage cert James's father was Owen Doolan, Farmer who was deceased at the date of the wedding of James.
If you don't mind can you please confirm and/or add any interesting facts to the family.
Incidentally my grandfather was also a Daniel Doolan born on 11 Oct 1886 and died 13 July 1918. He had two brothers and a sister. They were Eugene, James and Mona. My grandfather Daniel married Winifred Mary Crawley on 29th August 1910.
