Hi' Adriene,
What a pity that you didn't post this earlier in the week, as I was in Cork City twice this week and I could have checked it out at the Registry Office when I was there, for you

John is on the 1901 census aged 13, yet on the 1911 census he's 21and described as an apprentice Blacksmith and still living with William and Margaret,and single. as you've probably seen.
I'll have a look and see what I can find in the morning,if anything.


Edit, Just seen your other post
