28 July 1906 - John the musician was in the prisoners' book in Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire) charged with 'tendering a base half crown'. He was acquitted on 1st August 1906.

On 29 September 1913, he appears again in the register, listed as John Clarke or McCormack, musician, this time in the Bridewell station and charged with abandoning his children. He was cautioned on 1st October 1913.

DMP prisoners books: and

Catherine and the children appear in the workhouse records quite a lot, sometimes when John would be in prison. Looks like the family didn't have it easy.

Find My Past have the Dublin workhouse records. The workhouse was for those in need, but also as a cheap hospital for the poor.

It's not searchable, but once you get the man's service number you can browse the images to find him.

You should try Dublin City Council for old photos. They may even have copies of architectural drawings from when the flats were built.
