Thanks Liam. but I've already got that info.

That's Michael's grandparents in the Thoms and Street directory.

My Grandfather, James was born at his Grandparent's home too!

Hi' Teresa,
I couldn't find any reference either to Michael apart from the baptism, however I did find this, which may be of interest to you.

1862 Street index for Dublin
16, Bolton Street, Thomas Pollard [ Stucco Plasterer ]

1894 Thoms Directory
17, Bolton Street, M. Pollard, haberdashery & Chandler.
18, Bolton Street, Mrs Pollard,

* 1901 census should read stucco plasterer *

MICHAEL PATRICK POLLARD born 8th May 1888 in Dublin City was one of my grandfather's siblings, yet I can't find out what happened to him.

The 1911 Dublin census states his parents Joseph & Margaret Pollard had 13 children born living but only 9 alive.

I know that 3 died before 1911 and 9 married as I have all the appropriate certificates.

I cannot pin Michael Patrick Pollard down on the 1901 or 1911 Ireland Census.

A sister and 2 other brothers emigrated to the USA at different times, and died there, but I can't find Michael Patrick Pollard in the USA..

My Grandfather came over to England and settled in London, and the rest of his siblings died in Ireland.

I have searched Trees on here and Ancestry, with no luck!
