Could this possibly be the Baptism of Martin Mulligan?

Found Baptism 10 Nov 1874 Parish: Bohola Diocese: Achonry County: Mayo Father: Martin Mulligan Mother: Mary Gallagher Sponsor Witness 1: Mary McNulty

The Parish is just the other side of Swinford, census points towards a estimated birthdate of 1875/76.

Marriage certificate shows his father as Martin Mulligan

I believe this is the Marriage of his potential parents

His death record gives a birth year estimate of 1874 so the baptismal record and the 1901 census record fit that timeframe. I'd say it's likely. Mother may have been Mary Anne, or it's possible his father remarried after his mother's death and Anne is actually a stepmother.

You are correct. Martin on this census, does fit the time frame and his occupation as Shepherd could possibly be turned into a farmer in 1911.

It is possible that the death source is incorrect, however the baptism link I posted does show 1874 thought the 1911 Census which I'm pretty confident of shows 1876.

This census shows his birthplace as Roscommon instead of Mayo, so that and, although his mother may have used a middle name, throws doubt in my eyes on the census.

In your opinion Deb, do you think that the baptism link I posted, could be the Martin on my tree?
I certainly do, especially given that his father's name is Martin.
