The search for the Whelans / Phelans in Kilkenny

Another interesting record from the 1901 census of Kilkenny, is this one with a Lawrence Phelan aged 34, exactly the right age to be the man on the Mass card whom I am speculating was John Whelan's brother or cousin. Kilmacar is towards the north of the county so a long way from piltown unfortunately though it is still worth considering the possibility of a relationship.
