[Torrens List] Torrens in co. Clare, Ireland

Does anyone know about these Torrenses? In 1911 John Alexander Torrens, b. co. Antrim, was living in the household of his uncle Alexander Knox, also b. Antrim, in Ennis, Clare. The uncle was a grocer and publican, and his business apparently survives in Ennis as Knox's, a popular bar and restaurant over a whole building. John A. Torrens may be the father of Desmond Torrens, from Ennis, 'Des' who was a very well-known character, an Irish rugby international in the 1930s, and also a notable golfer; he got to the finals of the South of Ireland championship in the late 1930s.
