What were the dates of the 1901 and 1911 Irish Censuses (Censi?)

I read somewhere that the 1901 census was 31st March, so I'm guessing the 1911 one was similar.
Most roots researched back to the early/mid 1800s:
Mitchelstown, Co.Cork: CORBETT (pre1935), SWEENEY  (pre1935), CUSACK? (pre1894), KEYS? (pre1894)
Mallow, Co.Cork: BROWNE (1895-1935)
Caher, Co.Tipp: BROWNE (pre1895), PURTELL(pre1895)
Cashel, Co.Tipp: FANNING (pre1886)
Llanelly, Carms: GRIFFITHS (pre1934), REYNOLDS (pre1901), WILLIAMS (pre1934)
Ton Pentre, Glams: LEWIS (pre1901)

Thanks both - my eyesight (or brain) must be playing up because I looked at that help page and didn't spot it !

Actually I didn't see that page, I was looking here http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/about/index.html. I hadn't spotted the 'Help' link right at the bottom of the page. Stupid place to put it in my view!

Censuses (Censi?)

Since you ask, the correct plural of census is censuses  :D

JenB is quite right, of course.
It was fourth declension in Latin, with plural censūs (i.e. a long U sound).

Incidentally, the 1961 census was held a week earlier in the RoI than in NI.  We had to fill in a form while on holiday in Glencolumbkille and again on getting back to Co. Antrim.
Can we assume an equal number of people were moving in the other direction and so escaped the net altogether?
Bagwell of Kilmore & Lisronagh, Co. Tipperary;  Beatty from Enniskillen;  Brown from Preston, Lancs.;  Burke of Ballydugan, Co. Galway;  Casement in the IoM and Co. Antrim;  Davison of Knockboy, Broughshane;  Frobisher;  Guillemard;  Harrison in Co. Antrim and Dublin;  Jones around Burton Pedwardine, Lincs.;  Lindesay of Loughry;  Newcomen of Camlagh, Co. Roscommon;  Shield;  Watson from Kidderminster;  Wilkinson from Leeds
