Does anyone know if here are census returns for that time or what church's would have been on the go at that time, it's very hard as i don't know his parents names but they might have stayed down there, any help would be gratefully appreciated x

Statutory birth registration only began in Ireland in 1864 so you won’t get a birth certificate for Michael. You may be able to find his baptism, but to do that you would need at least one of his parents names.

What looks to be Michael Reilly’s marriage to Bridget Donohoe was registered in Dublin South 1875 Volume 12, page 616. If you order a copy of that certificate it should give you Michael’s father’s name and occupation which may help locate his baptism and family in Wexford.

This may be your family in the 1901 census:

Also James & Norah:

James Reilly’s marriage to Norah Malone was registered in Dublin S July – Sept 1898 Volume 2, page 635.
