Hello fastore,

You are seeking Delaney relatives who may have lived in Dublin. If they moved to Armagh in 1917 some of them should have been in the 1911 census.

Here is the listing for Delaneys living in Dublin in 1911, there are over 700 but if you have some names you may locate.

I don't know anything about Hanover Quay.

Hanover Quay is on the south side of the River Liffey close to Sir John Roberson's Quay.
If you contact the Department of the Marine they may have some information on the ship. You could also check The National Archives in England if he was in he Royal Navy.

"Hanover docks" is in the city of Germany but it looks like you mean Hanover Quay.
This from the Dublin Daily Express 27 Nov 1891 . .

Gosh Micheal. Well found. That article gives a lot of information. It is very sad also.
