Notes from Terry Curran:

William Shannon and his wife Anne McEvoy (above) are my Great Great Grandparents.
William was born 1836. died 16 Nov 1926 and Anne was born 1939 and died in 1909
apart from the two girls listed, Ann and Teresa, there were 5 more:
William Shannon c.1920's
Bridget b. 14th March1864
Bridget b. 25th March 1867
Ellen b. 17th July 1871
Elizabeth b. 10th July 1874
William b. 3rd Oct 1875

 

There is a possibly another son called John, but I am still trying to confirm that. Found him while searching for your Great Uncle John Brennan in the WWI papers. 
These Shannon lived and worked in Grange as farmers. Even today, the family still have a farm in the area and work with Grange Athletic Football Club - Bennekerry, Carlow.
 
I descend via William Shannon born 1875 and his wife Mary Neill via their Daughter Anne Shannon who married John Curran see number  Curran Family notes (33 Bridewell lane). John in turn was from Little Barrack Street and his parents and family are mentioned on that page.
