I may, or may not, have got this wrong - RDL Asylum = Dublin  :-\ :-\
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

If it is Dublin- http://www.workhouses.org.uk/DublinNorth/ (scroll down page to see Records)

The records are very unlikely to be online and since less than 100 years old may be difficult to obtain- maybe not impossible but might need a special application. First place to check is National Archives catalogue.
