Katherine (Kate) Kavanagh, Ballinacor Wicklow 1895-1956?

Hello All

Does anyone have any information on a Catherine (Kate) Kavanagh from Wiclow. She is my husband's grandmother who married a Thomas (Tom) Ridgeway (and we can find no further information about him at all apart from the fact he is buried in Avoca Old Cemetery). We think her parents were Peter and Jane Ridgeway (nee Kearon(s)?) and her dates were 1895 - 1956. We are pretty sure about her death but not 100% positive about the rest. We have the registration of her and Tom Ridgeway's marriage in Rathdrum in 1933 - which would make her about 38 when she married. Would/could she have been married before as this seems very late? She had three children with Tom:

Jean (Jane on registration) and May (Mary on reg.) - 1936 (twins)

Peter (my father-in-law) - 1939

We have some siblings of Catherine's which we are pretty sure are hers:

Sarah Kavanagh
1878 1954

William Kavanagh

Peter Kavanagh

Michael Kavanagh

Margaret Kavanagh

John Kavanagh

Catherine Kavanagh
1895 1956

Thomas Kavanagh

In 1901/11 censuses this family are living at no. 10/11 Balinacor, Kilbride, Wicklow. Any information anyone has about Catherine, her parents/other ancestors/marriage to Tom would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
