Still deaths from influenza in November 1919 in Annascaul

I'm browsing the records but what struck me about these 8 deaths is that 3 are from influenza, an entire year after the Spanish flu epidemic began.

There are influenza deaths from 1918 on this page though

The Spanish flu epidemic continued into 1919 but influenza as an illness continues to this day so deaths would not be uncommon
