I would agree with Ballitore.
Another excellent townlands database is the work of the late John Broderick a.k.a. 'seanruad'. Very handy when you can only clearly identify a short series of letters, or a string at the beginning or end.

There's also a 1908 one with an address in Bishop Street who died in the Workhouse.

She is in Glasnevin. Listed as a widow of a fish dealer, Michael Byrne 54 Aungier Street was informant and made arrangements for the burial. PM me if you want the record.

**edit 54 Aungier Street is Fanagan's Funeral Directors today, so Michael Byrne may have been a funeral director.

**another edit. 54 Aungier Street was Fanagan's in 1912.

I think she is the entry at the top of this page (I know the age is way out).
Here is Mary Nugent in 1911:
Mary Nugent's child Kathleen's birth was reported by Catherine Moore

I know it's years on, but I just realised I did not thank the people who helped. I am much obliged.
Thank you.

There may be a next of kin (often their mother) listed in the military record.

I think it says 'Mortus' (maybe 'mortui'?) which means they are dead, or at least the father was - I'm not 100% if it also meant the mother was also dead.
