This looks promising
http://www.countywicklowheritage.org/category/genealogy
will try an email tomorrow to see if they can suggest any avenues to find a possible missing page.
Thanks again

Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.

I feel like Alice, as this is getting curiouser and curiouser

Elizabeth declared on the 1911 census that she'd had 9 children, 4 of whom were still living. I have found birth register entries for 9 with matching details for parents.

Thanks to Sinann sharing the knowledge about firkling in the other forms than the missing household return, I looked at Form N, the enumerator's abstract.
That says there were 4 males -likely to be Dad, Patrick, and the three boys listed in 1911 - Michael, Edward and Patrick and 3 females - likely to be Mum, Elizabeth and Ellen listed on the 1911 plus one other not yet identified,  possibly one of the three known girls born to this family who had died by 1911.

I am still looking for deaths for Female born Feb 1884, Marianne/Mary Ann born Dec 1884 and Catherine/Kate born August 1890 (not 1892 as I posted in error earlier, sorry)

So I searched for Walsh deaths in Shillelagh 1901 -1911

and came up with Katie, died 22 April 1903, at Drummin,  informant Patrick Walsh, father, Tradesman, present at death, Drummin.

looked good for being the child born in 1890 till I saw that this child was aged 1 year and 6 months when she died!
Can't find a matching birth registration 1901-1903 to match the parent'snames/district I'd expect it to be registered in.

???
he he, I wish I'd just gone to bed!

Though I have sent emails to both the Wicklow Heritage Organisation and the National Archives of Ireland (who I think hold the originals of the census returns) asking if they can advise how I request to have this checked. May not get a result, but Granda always told me that shy bairns get nowt and its always worth asking :-)

There is a site called RootsIreland (subscription) that have transcriptions of the Tomacork/Carnew parish records up to 1900.
Wouldn't help with Kate but should get you the name of Unknown.
As you know you can't ask for a look up for a subscription site but they do a 24 hour for €10.
If the requests for the census don't work out it might be worth considering.

I believe I have found Marianne/Mary Anne’s death registration, by a roundabout route, but it feels right.

23rd May 1908 Wicklow People
a report on the Ballinglen Cycling and Athletic Sports Races - not usually my first port of call for a death notice but I looked anyway :-)

“At the last meeting all business was postponed as a mark of respect and sympathy with Mr Edward Walsh, a member of the committee, on the death of his sister Miss Marianne Walsh, in connection with which a vote of condolence was proposed by Michael Byrne, and seconded by John Doyle, and passed in silence.”

Nothing in the Shillelagh District but in Enniscorthy (where her Mum came from) there is a death register entry 14th May 1908, for a MaryAnne Walsh, aged 23, shop assistant. Informant was Nicholas Haughton (Haughton was her Mum’s maiden name), present at the death, Residence, St John.

Thanks Sinann, I do have a sub (for a month) to that site and have used it a lot. I may be missing something obvious but why Tomacork/Carnew parish? Their home parish seems to have been Killaveney/Annacurra ?

It is Kilaveney, not Killaveney which is in Tyrone.

Makes a big difference if you Google "Kenny Kilaveney"  and "Kenny Killaveney"

Prior to 1911, yes  (though that death registration for a Katie in 1903 is really puzzling)

According to the info on the 1911 census, these two died before 1911.

Female born Feb 1884
Catherine/Kate born August 1890
