The numbers on the 1901 census for Leeson Park Avenue are enumerators references, not street numbers, so the family may not have actually moved.. Leeson Park Avenue and Westmoreland Park are both in Ranelagh and at that time would probably have been in the RC parish of Rathmines. The other RC parish that's close to Leeson Park Ave. would be Donnybrook in Co. Dublin

Possible match for son Thomas shows in the records Rathmines parish on the free IrishGenealogy website, with address as Chelmsford lane, also in Ranelagh and very close to the other locations. see google map :

Year for the baptism is 1888 so quite close to the ages given, parents first names are John and Anne and Anne maiden surname is Walshe. See :

also a baptism to the same parents in 1885 for a son Michael, also with a Chelmsford lane address - see :

The Christian names and surnames, particularly Murphy, are very common, so there could be other potential matches, but the location for these is very close to the addresses mentioned, so I think worth considering..
