Mary Hughes

I could really do with some help
I am looking for grandma Mary Hughes born circa 1884 according to marriage cert
I have a birth cert 1884 Dublin south which gives an address has 121 Cork St Dublin(although according to her eldest and only surviving child she was born Northern Ireland):confused:
We get the birth date from her wedding cert dated 1908 @ Islington and the place of birth from her death cert
Her father was Michael Hughes (according to her wedding cert a labourer) and if we are to believe the birth cert that we do have her mother was Catherine

1/I cannot find her on the Dublin census etc(not any of them)
2/nor can I find her on any census in u.k
3/at her marriage she gave an address of 1 carville st finsbury park islington but this was her husbands family address (and talking with the church and in a look up with their papers etc it was noted that Mary was not a resident of the parish)(so therfore had to give that address to be able to marry in that parish:confused:
Assuming that she may have come from Ireland to marry I looked at the 1901 census ..no luck
So turning to the uk census is the only thing that I can think of
so please can I ask for help in looking at the 1891/1901
Thankyou I know that it`s a long post to read
