Hi I'm looking for any info on Peter Eagar and Mary Magee, marriage was 23rd Feb 1841 in Rathdrum area, Wicklow

I'd love to know of other children born to them?

Mary Eagar died September 1897 and Peter Eagar died March 1896, both in I think Ballinaderry? Would like to know where they are burred?

Their daughter Mary married Peter O'Neill (from Wexford) in Dublin at the start of 1884 (my Gt Grandparents)

Peter O'Neill died June 1927 in Dublin at 20 Inchicore Road, and his wife Mary died December 1940 also at the same address, Both are buried in Glendalough, Wicklow,  Would anyone know why??? 

I have seen the name Eagar change while searching like to Eagars, Egar, Eager, Eagers, Eger 

All replies and help very much welcome, as I'm trying to help my daughter out with her family search project here in Dublin and her cousin in the USA
