I have John King born 24th Nov 1906  to Parents Kate Kelly & John Patrick King.
No father listed on birth certificate (illegitimate), mother is Catherine King-

Mother Kate King died July 1907 Reg District Rathdrum.
That Kate King is wife of labourer so not mother of above John King-

Tks Agadowey.  I was given a slip of paper today with the info I had posted which proves to be incorrect from the aspect of father being John King & mother Kate King (nee Kelly) no wonder I couldnt find a marriage.
John King b.1906 ended up in an industrial school in Greenmount Cork.  The info I received from his 2 elderly daughters who knew nothing of his early beginnings & understandably would like to know.
Is there any way of sourcing information regarding his Mother Catherine King?
In 1911 I found a John King age 4 & Kathleen King age 5 Boarders in a house b.dublin city Living in House 4 Irishtown Lower Straffan Kildare obviously fostered out. thank you

You said "Son John b.1906 is in Dominican Convent Kilpoole Parish East Wicklow Urban obviously an Orphan1911 census" then "In 1911 I found a John King age 4 & Kathleen King age 5 Boarders in a house b.dublin city Living in House 4 Irishtown Lower Straffan Kildare obviously fostered out."

www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Kildare/Straffan/Irishtown__Lower/539563
I can't see a John King in Wicklow age 5 but there is one 8 years old

Seems as though you are just trying to connect any John King the right age  :-\

Correct aghadowey was looking in vain in light of your previous info and saw afterwards the John King in Dominican convent was born S America. So I dont know how John arrived from somewhere in Dublin area to Cork.?

The Rathdrum Registers might help finding Kate King who died in 1907 but John King, son of Catherine King, was born in RATHDOWN, Co. Dublin-
