How to cite this source for census in Ireland

I am finally tackling some Irish profiles (my husband's relatives) and found a helpful census.  
However I have no idea how to properly cite this source.  Can anyone give me guidance?  
I will paste the page link in here but not sure it will work.   It's a census page on the website:  census.nationalarchives.ie

Thanks.

You can see my citation example for that website on this profile:

McCorry-1 .

Click the subheading link for NationalArchives.ie to go directly to the citation.

If you plan to cite the transcription page (I only linked to the image), just add a section for it. You may also want to add a section for date accessed (lazy me!wink).

edit: Here's the link to the transcription page:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Galway/Portumna/New_Street/1396745/ .

I do some copy and paste (C&P) then some formating to make it look good.

Here is an example Charles Devlin

Before I do the C&P on the census list, I click on the show all informarion. It will scroll off the right side of the page but you can C&P all of it.

I just do a simple inline citation - you can see it here.

Just a simple ref tag 1901 Irish (Ireland Census), the link to the census, then close out the ref tag.

I keep it in the notes of my browser so I can just copy and paste it when needed.
