They lived in a fine house,
(or "Shamrock Ville"),
North Circular Rd, Limerick,
from at least 1938 [son's death]
to Lola's death 1980.
Think Niall then lived there to 1986.
He is listed as solicitor, 86 O'Connell Street, Limerick (his father's office/residence), in [Thom's] at least 1945 to 1961.
Article about his sister says he was president of Law Society of Ireland.
In 1970s he worked in family firm, P.S. Connolly solicitors, Limerick.
P.S. Connolly merged with other solicitors in 1978 to create Connolly, Sellors, Geraghty solicitors, 6/7 Glentworth St, Limerick (two adjoining Georgian buildings).
Heather Miller recalls that in Niall's house there was a statue of Kaiser Wilhelm, said to have belonged to St John Gaffney, a gift to him from the Kaiser.
