Inquiry about Thomas Higgins - Convict transported in 1833

Hi, my name is Ross Higgins from New South Wales Australia, I am trying to gather further information on my great X 3 grandfather Thomas Higgins who was transported as a convict in 1833 from Dublin aged 14 on the ship Royal Admiral. I have little information of his background except that he must have been born 1819 and that according to records there was only one Thomas Higgins born in that year in Kilarney Kerry which is a long way from Dublin. I am not overly confident that this is the Thomas Higgins I am looking for but I have nothing else to go on. Court records ?. Shipping records do not show his origins except "a native of Dublin". Any clues or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Please contact me at  ailros AT bigpond.net.au,

HIGGINS Transported from
Ireland to Australia 

The National Archives of Ireland
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/cgi-bin/naisearch01 

Transportation Records Database
System of Transportation
Following the American War of Independence, a new
destination was sought for the transportation of
convicts from Britain and Ireland 'beyond the seas'.
On 13 May 1787, the first fleet bound for Sydney Cove
with a complement of convicts, sailed from Portsmouth
in England. Its arrival on 26 January 1788 marks the
foundation of the colony of New South Wales. The first
ship to sail directly from Ireland carrying convicts
under sentence of transportation was the Queen, which
arrived in Port Jackson on 26 September 1791. 

Transportation from Ireland to Australia effectively
came to an end in 1853. The last ship to carry
convicts directly from Ireland to Australia was the
Phoebe Dunbar, which sailed from Kingstown (now Dun
Laoghaire) near Dublin and arrived in Western
Australia on 30 August 1853. During the 62 years of
transportation from Ireland to Australia, some 30,000
men and 9,000 women were sent as convicts to Australia
for a minimum period of seven years - many more
followed their loved ones as free settlers to a new
life in the colony. 
The sentence of transportation was abolished in July
1857 under an Act of that year, but the Act allowed
for convicts sentenced to penal servitude to be sent
'beyond the seas'. By this means, transportation
continued from England until 1868. As far as is known,
nobody convicted of a crime committed in Ireland was
transported to Australia between 1853 and 1868,
although no doubt some persons of Irish birth or
origin who were convicted of crimes committed in
England were among those transported to Australia.
However in 1868 sixty three Irish Fenians who had been
convicted in Ireland but imprisoned in England were
transported from England. They arrived in Western
Australia on 9 January 1868 on board the Hougoumont,
the last convict transport ship to sail from England
to Australia.
