The christian name is not given but in most cases should be ascertainable by checking the on lne 1910 census:
The Census of 1851 was taken under the superintendence of the Registrar-General of Marriages, Mr. William Donnelly, assisted by Dr. (afterwards Sir) William Wilde. The chief features of that enumeration were the School Census and the Report on the Status of Disease, which, in addition to treating of the number of people suffering from sickness, dealt with the deaf and dumb, the blind, the lunatic and idiotic, and the lame and decrepit. An interesting Table of Cosmical Phenomena, Epizootics, Famines and Pestilences in Ireland, from the earliest records published, was also compiled by the Assistant Commissioner, aided by the eminent Irish scholars, Dr. O’Donovan and Mr. Eugene O’Curry, MRIA. The Agricultural Statistics (first commenced in 1847) for 1851 and 1852 were collected by the Commissioners, who also published detailed statistics of emigration.”
