Bridget Fulham and Robert Bates of Donabate County Dublin

Looking for information about and seeking descendants of Bridget Fulham (1858-) daughter of James Fulham and second wife Bridget Monks Fulham of Portrane, Co Dublin. She married Robert Bates, son of Henry of Donabate, 3 May 1892. They remained in Donabate. In 1911, Bridget can be found living at 21 North Ballalease as a Lodging House Keeper. She has no husband listed. She had at least 3 children: Anna, Henry, and Brigid. Brigid died young, but the other 2 children may have removed to Dublin.
Also interested in the following siblings of Bridget:
Elizabeth Fulham (1866-1935) who emigrated to Boston and was married to John Gilsenan (1860-1910) also of County Dublin, town of Rush. They had 3 daughters Catherine, Mary and Eleanor(who was known as Sister Mary Linus) and one son John Aloysius Gilsenan who married Sarah Crimlisk in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Also searching for Elizabeth's siblings including:
Catherine (1856-) who married Joseph Purcell in Dublin 1892 had one child Kathleen Purcell (1894-)who is found living with her uncle Joseph Fulham in 'the Burrow' in 1901 and 1911.
James (1860-)
Mary Anne (1862-)
Margaret (1864-)
Patrick (1868-) married Mary McCann in 1892, lived in Dublin. Had at least 5 children: Bridget, Mary, James, Christopher and Elizabeth (who may have been a nun called Sr. Mary Mellitus who removed to Rhode Island where she died of cancer in 1963. She is mentioned as a cousin in one of the Gilsenan sisters' obituary)
Johanna (1871-) never married. Lived with brother
Joseph (1873-1950) remained in the Burrow. Married 'Lizzie'. Had at least 2 daughters Bridget Mary(1907-1965) and Roseanna or Rosealeen (1910-1977) It is possible that Bridget married a James Kavanaugh, but this is not confirmed. Roseanna never married.
John Norris Fulham born in 1839 to James Fulham and first wife Eleanor Norris Fulham in Portrane (aka The Burrow), Donabate Parish, County Dublin. Married to Ellen Leonard of Rush, County Dublin daughter of Nicholas Leonard and Bridget Flynn Leonard. Emigrated to Boston, Massachusetts in 1864. Had many children there.
Would also be very interested to speak with anyone who can trace their line to Donabate or Portrane regardless of their direct connection to those mentioned above.
Thank you!
