I think that John 19 in the census is the person who became the Excise officer and William is his brother.
Depends on what even approx DOB Livestorymaker has for John.

He died before 5 March 1964, there is a death on the 2 March, occupation just says retired so not 100% sure it is him but age is 72 so born about 1892 which would work out with the 19 year old in 1911

I can't thank you all enough...you really cracked the code for me on this. I wonder how far back I can go with these guys now. I know a bit about Kathleen's father, Richard J. O'Brien and his lineage, but John's family with that common name is really really hard.

Do you agree that his father is John?
Where did you get his father as William?
No point researching the incorrect family.

If they are the correct family
1901
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/Ardskeagh/Ballyhay/1118984/
Their ages are younger than 10 years because people increased their age in 1911 in the hope of getting a Old Age Pension which was introduced in 1909
In 1911 both parents are down as born Limerick in 1901 only Johanna but they live close to the border with Limerick.
John's birth 1891
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1891/02383/1889336.pdf
Johanna's name is Burke
Marriage 1872 Limerick
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1872/11302/8146803.pdf
John Cooleens near Ballyhae, Johanna Athlacca which is in Limerick. This is where they were living not necessarily where they were born.
