The John Kelly in the Army Attestation Papers contained in the Fold 3 Records on Ancestry - mentioned in my previous post, shows an enlistment date of 28 May 1902 and an age of 18.

Although this John's birth place is shown as St Thomas, Dublin. So the age fits with the baptism record found by Sinann -- but the 'parish' doesn't.

Hence that soldier's record may not be him.

 Unfortunately - as I said I don't have access to Fold 3 so I cannot see any more information from that record.
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

They may not be the same type of parish.
St Andrew's is the RC parish (I couldn't see the baptisim on the NLI site last night so not sure how trustworthy that record is)
St.Thomas maybe a Civil parish.
Cuffe St appears to be in St.Patrick's Ward although it's at a point where a few areas meet.

This is where it gets really cloudy. the Irish 1911 census reflects his birth in 1891.
The 1901 census might be an enumerator error.
He's listed as 18 & a scholar.
He's not going to be at school at that age.
