Thank you once again ShaunJ for looking up this. Not my Patrick either. My poor Patrick's mother died shortly after he was born and he lived with relatives. No blood brothers or sisters. His father subsequently remarried and I have all details of this second family. Patrick seemed to have been adrift from the family and I just wanted to piece together his life. Really appreciate your help.

Thank  you Kiltaglassan. Great to have her death details and her address at the time. Way back the Murrays lived in Powerscourt off Mount Street so she probably returned to live with a family member when she was ill.

Thank you ShaunJ. That answers my question. He was not my Patrick Carr who lived in Dún Laoghaire Co. Dublin. Appreciate your help.

I have been tracing my step Grand Uncle Patrick Carr's life.With great help from rootschatters!
I know he was born in Glenageary, Co Dublin in 1875 and died in Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin in 1913. I found him in the 1901 and 1911 Irish census and found details of his marriage to Teresa Murray. Within our extended Carr family someone has just mentioned that they saw a military service detail for a Patrick Carr (may not be our man). It roughly said:
Gender Male
Marital status: Single
Age: 17
Birth Year: abt 1876
Birth Place: St Michan, Dublin, Dublin, Ireland
Enlistment Date: 24 Mar 1893
Enlistment Place: Dublin Ireland
Regiment: 102nd Foot (R. Dublin Fusiliers)
Service Number: 1390.
Now my question is how would I get more details of this man? Maybe an address or where he enlisted that could tie in with my Patrick

In case any other members of the Carr family are tracing Patrick I am delighted that yesterday I got a photograph of his grave at Deansgrange Cemetery North Section J1/50

Thank you Maiden Stone for your reply and tips. I have not found a death for the young Richard McGuirk nor a death for the child's mother Mary McGuirk nee Farrell. Peter (the soldier) has intrigued me since I found his graveyard record and the thought that he had a wife and son further intrigue me.

It is now 2022 and I come back to the elusive missing McGuirk family members!!.
Peter McGuirk 1831 to 1868.
I know he was a soldier. A rootschatter Tara found him in the 1851 census in the East India Co Worley Barracks. He died 4 August 1868. I found a grave in Deansgrange Cemetery for him and he is described as a soldier from the 84th Regiment and is also listed as single.

I was happy enough with this until yesterday going through the Irish Genealogy site I found a birth for a Richard McGuirk 17 October 1865 at Dún Laoghaire, father listed as Peter, soldier, abroad and mother Mary nee Farrell! Could my Peter have married? Would this be his child? Would that child Richard have lived?

Thank you Kiltaglassan for all those births. I'd say like a lot of other McGuirk families they moved a lot (poverty).

Heywood, love the detail from the Census of Ireland 1891. Thank you. I always go off on tangents and couldn't help noticing that Windy Arbour was then called Windy Harbour!
Thank you also for the piece from Hugh Oram's book The Little Book of Dundrum. That probably nails the concrete must have been around the concrete works.

When I should be tracing relations I go wandering off wondering about place names and their relevance!!!
