I'm trying to find information on my great Grandad (MICHAEL O'ROURKE), who according to the info I received from an uncle worked on the Irish railway during the late 19th Century. That's all I know

There are two Michael O'Rourkes in the 1901 census who worked on the railway, one in Limerick and one in Dublin.

If you had any guide on dates that would certainly help!

My Michael lived in Sundrive road Crumlin Dublin
No hits in the 1901/1911 censuses for Kimmage, which is where I think Sundrive Road would be classified. Do you know his dates/years of birth or death?
I'm not exactly sure if Michael is his proper name, i'm just going on what my Dad's oldest brother told me
I know for absolute certain that he worked on the railway & that he won some sort of cash prize. My nan was Margaret O'Rourke & she had a sister Esther (O'REILLY), Annie (Ellis) & Elizabeth (Phelan)
