The Maher & O'Brien Brien Familes

Postby alamo11 » Sun Jun 19, 2011 10:32 am

Hi Thank you for the responses requesting information about the Maher Family who lived in Dove Road Orrell Park in the 1930's to 1960's.
If anyone knows about thee O'Brien Family from Viola Street Bootle from 1943 to 1970. I am asking again as there may be some of the "new" people on this site that may have some knowledge of these families?
I would be very grateful, I have had some responses but I would like to ask if anyone knows about Andy & Ruby Maher from Connolly Avenue in the 1940 until they both passed away. Their family were Andy (now deceased) Linda and John I think there was another member of the family? I did have contact with Linda however when my computer crashed last year I lost all my information including contact on this site. Please feel free to send me anything you may know a can remember. Kindest regards Maureen O'Brien (now Prescott) mprescott1@optusnet.com.au Thanks again if you can help.

Vera, I went to school with Micheal Maher who lived in 46 or 48 Wood Ave., he was quite a rebel, he was in my class in Saint Monicas, a few years ago I did some work on the windows at 46 or48 Wood Avenue, for one of Mick's relatives, I think she was his sister, I was asking about him, and the lady said he lived up near the Black Bull somewhere, also just across the road from 46, lived another schoolmate John Fealy, do you know if they are still alive as I would like to make contact with them.
Kindest regards, Bill Tomo..

Maher & O'Brien families

Postby Myra » Wed Apr 17, 2013 6:54 am

Hi Vera if you remember my sister Sylvia & I lived in 27 Wood ave. I think it's Christine Maher who now lives in wood avenue. I was Joan Mahers friend & Syl was Sheila friend. John Feeley still lives in 29 Wood ave as he took over the house after his parents passed away. Joan & I used to work part time for her eldest brother In the Spenso Bar on Stanley Road just past Stanley Hospital . Was his name Peter ?

Vera,
I dont know your two brothers but their names ring a bell, specially Stephen,
But Mick Maher is a St., Monicas legend, a one off, a rebel,

I remember at the time the early Dracula films with Bella Lugosi were very popular, and Mick being quite tall with jet black hair decided to be Bella's biggest fan, remember those Gaberdine Macks that we all wore at the time, well Mick used to wear his like a Vampires cloak and he would go around the school yard with his cloak covering half of his face, and legend has it that when we all posed for the school Photograph Mick was on it with his cloak covering half his face just like Bella Lugosi in the dracula film.. The senior teacher Mr., Musker allways tried to belittle Mick
but it was just like water off a ducks back, they tried to break our spirit but they could'nt, they never could especially Mick Maher's.
Regards, Bill Tomo..

Hi I am reading about many Maher people however I need to know the relationship. The name of all the sons from Joey and Mary O'Keefe was Michael one of them and has passed away?
Whom is Christine Maher?
Vera are you Vera PRICE ? Aunty Mary nee Maher Price that lived in Virginia St? Married to a Paul Jones? If not do you know where I could find Vera I hear she is still alive but where she lives seems to be a mystery? I hear she is very private!!
Thank you for listening to me as you will understand this like a HUGE jigsaw and I have not completed the outer Edge yet Ha !

Hi Nikki
Just started to read through the reply's and found your response.
I have contact now with Terry MAHER and his wife Gene in Canada!
So things have not stopped ha !
Also his daughter Nicola in Canada.
The Price family seemed to have all passed away except for Vera Price but I do not have any contact with her or where she lives all I know is that she still lives in the Bootle area, If I could find out where she is living then that would be a huge stepping stone and help me to complete most of the "missing links" .
Thanking you in advance for any help at all that you genies out there have done for so many grateful others.
Maureen Sydney Australia I can give you my email should you require it.

Hello Maureen back and still looking for information especially THE MAHER families as previously in past years through here. Thanks for all who have been so kind in responding.
I have been onto Face Book however that is not as user friendly as this site! I have seen my 4th and 5th cousins names on there but still have not been able to get their back ground e.g. Who were their..... grandparents / parents/ uncles or aunts cousins as well?

I am still hoping to win Lotto so I can come home (Liverpool will always be in my heart and soul) get every one to come along to a pre-arranged meeting place e.g. Church Hall, Hotel, Pub with a big garden or meeting Rooms access. So ALL the generations from Ninny and Gags can meet and find out all their Ancestry especially knowing that the majority of them ALL live within the Liverpool Metropolitan Area and have never met or knew they existed !!
So if there are any of you out there that are or know a Maher ask them to drop me line so I can start to collate the HUGE I mean Massive FAMILY TREE Ha!

Thanking you all in advance.

Kindest Regards and Sincere best wishes.
Maureen Prescott nee O"Brien (William ) nee Peggy (Maher) Ninny and Gags daughter from Viola Street Bootle.

Hi Jackie!
My husband called me and asked if I have a cousin called Jackie? I said not to my knowledge.........however.............the Maher family that I came from started in Dove Road Orrell Park near the Carlton Cinema. So I scrutinised your response Ha ! ha! my Granddad was John and my grandmother Dolly we all called them Ninny and Gags. They had twelve children the surviving ones were (from memory) Thomas (Tommy) Mary (Price) Andrew (Andy) Winifred (Winnie Kenny) Anne (Ann Collict) Joseph (Joey) Margaret (Peggy O'Brien My Mother) Kathleen (Morris) Teresa (Married 3 times?) the other three were still birth /deceased. So as you can see there is no connection here. However my Grandfather's brothers was and Andrew Maher who lived off Strand Road Oregon St ? or maybe the next one down. They had a (big) fallout and never ever spoke after that. Maybe this could be your Maher back ground? Hope this helps Good Luck with your searching. We left Liverpool in 1964 going to N.Z. and across to Australia eight years later. Kindest Regards and sincere best wishes Maureen (nee O'Brien married Allen Prescott.

Hi Lynda I was at Pat and Harry's house in Fernhill Road. many years ago now. I was on holiday from Australia. You may remember me from that time. Harry your dad's mother was there as well I think from memory she was living there I think she may have been on holiday from NZ?
Maureen Prescott nee O'Brien daughter of Peggy O'Brien nee Maher my dad was Bill O'Brien and they lived in Viola Street number 57!
I am in contact with quite a few of the Maher 's in Liverpool and in Canada Joe and Gene and also Sheila and Terry Maher's I have contact with them on Face Book. I also have their emails should you want to contact one of them. I am still hoping to win Lotto and I will be back home like a shot. Ha !
I am hoping that you still are on the Bootle Times site I have been very lazy but getting myself back on track ha !
If you can contact Vera I am at a loss to all the Price Families have no information on them at all? If you would be so kind as to see if she remembers ANYTHING at all I can try to put it together. I am happy to give you a copy once I have collated all the information.
If and WHEN I get back to Liverpool my dream will be to get ALL of the families together in one HUGE room and see what we can all do in getting the MAHER DYNESTY from Ninny and Gags and lots of photo's. I am actually "speaking to" my 4/5/6 cousins at present.
Looking forward and trusting and praying that you are still on this website, kindest regards and hugs from Maureen Prescott your (Pat your mum was my first cousin so that makes you my second cousin.) I heard that your sister lived next door to my Ninny's old place in 3 Dove Road? I heard cannot remember when but she passed away a while ago now? Mo xxx
