lucy mcNamara journal

I have come across some pages(3) of Lucy McNamara's journal posted online. One refers to my gt gt grandfather Martin Taaffe of Ruan and says he was married to a relative of, hers McMahon. I had not known he was married twice but his first wife was McNamara, his second Molony. I can see some of the people she refers to (Casey) as sponsors at Martin Taaffes and Bridget McNamara children (Martin and Mary) 's baptisms late 1840s. I would love to see a full copy of this journal if anyone knows how to acess it. I have obviously asked the ancestry users, the one who replied it. He asked me if I knew someone from Ruan to ask (he named them but I dont want to put their name up) I dont know them. suggestions welcome
I had known I was related to Kellys from that area and another journal comment tied it down for me Ann Molony, my gt gt grandmother Mary Molony's sister was married to Arthur Kelly. They have Frost descendants. Kieran O'Donnell td is a descendant (thanks Paddy Waldron for this one).
