I have always believed that the 1901 and 1911 are the only censuses available for Ireland but have just discovered that Ancestry have one for Armagh for 1851. It gives far more info than usual. The marriage year is given for couples and all children are listed, including those that have died (with year and cause of death) and those living away from home.

There is also a 1841/1851 extract for Ireland that also gives maiden names. This is extracted from Pension Records.
