Mick inherited the family farm. He and his wife, Maggie, who married late, had no children. I was told that the farm was sold to a relative of Maggie's. According to a Co. Limerick Land Registry document (folio number 1154), it appears that Mick sold the farm in two tranches: 12 acres were purchased by a John Hanrahan in 1949 and the rest of the land was sold to a Patrick Joachim Hennessy on the basis that Mick and Maggie were to have a "life estate", i.e., a right to live in the old family home until their deaths. Apparently no trace of the old Doody farmhouse remains.
