This looks like your family in the 1901 census:
And in 1911:
Note that the 1911 census tells you they had 6 children of which 5 were still alive then.
Here’s Peter’s probate abstract. The will itself should be in PRONI in paper format. It will likely mention his children, and if any daughters were married it may give their married names, which can help tracing forward.
Probate of the Will of Peter Duffy late of 3 Newington Avenue Belfast R.I.C. Pensioner who died 25 September 1916 granted at Belfast to Mary Duffy the Widow.

trying for descendants

Peter and Mary’ s children were
1. CASSIE Duffy [ Cassie = Casandra, Cassandra, Cassondra]
 I think she’s alive in 1911, could she have married[/font]
1910   Henry  DUFFY   Cassie  DUFFY   Londonderry   
1910   Francis  XXXXX   Cassie  DUFFY   Londonderry   
1911   William  XXXXXX   Cassie  DUFFY   Castlederg   Tyrone   
the latter is possibly connected as her birth was Co Tyrone

2.  MAY Duffy   b~1882-3 Roman Catholic Co Tyrone   aBrokers Clerk 1911   Single   -
no mention of her in

3. Maggie Duffy   b~1887-8   Roman Catholic   Co Tyrone   Clerk, to Wholesale Whiskey Merchant in 1911 Single
in there are no marriages for a Maggie, but if she  married as Margaret there are:-   
Duffy   Margaret J   1915   her father Peter   Antrim   
DUFFY   MARGARET JOSEPHINE   1915   her father PETER   Antrim   
neither show name of spouse a possible partial clue  clue is emerald ancestors website
 where she marries a Thomas XXXX, however on that website are also
1914   Francis John  XXXXXX m   Margaret Ann  DUFFY   Belfast   Antrim
1915   William John  Emmerald   Margaret  DUFFY   Belfast   Antrim

you should try for all three
