if that couple match up with your Murphy family, then there's another baptism - this time a girl named Sophia in 1883. Address is Leinster Road, which is in Rathmines, and even closer to the parish church.

see : http://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/details...

Godparents are a John and Mary Walsh - maybe relations of Anne ?

Sophia/Sophie is not a common firstname, and there's just one likely civil birth registration in the correct district and year for her :

Name : Sophia Murphy
Event Type : Birth
Registration Quarter and Year : Jan - Mar 1883
Registration District : Dublin South
Volume : 2 / Page 664

unfortunately it seems she died soon after birth, as there's registration the same quarter for her :

Name : Sophia Murphy
Event Type : Death
Registration Quarter and Year : Jan - Mar 1883
Registration District : Dublin South
Age : 0 (i.e. less than one year)
Volume 2 / Page 628

A research cert for the birth from the GRO should show father's occupation, which might help prove, or rule out, a connection to this couple...
