Ireland (and Scotland, Wales, and for that matter, most of the English counties, are a complete mystery to me:D ) but I'd start at

Presumably you know his wife's name from the birth certificate of one of the children. Have you found Mary and the children on the 1891 and 1901 census? Also what reference do you have for Michael in the 1881 census? I can only find one likely Michael who's a private in the army, living in Portland, and absolutely no sign of him in the 1891 or 1901 census.
