I research the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,000,000 surviving rcds for abt 65% of Irish counties. Rcds are increasingly sparse B4 1840, rare B4 1800.
Note 1 - Without a KNOWN county, the chance of an ancestor's rcds NOT being in this database is AT LEAST 35%.
Note 2 - Only 1/2 of Co. Cork's rcds are in this database.
Note 3 - The RC church kept control over most parish rcds from Tipperary (north). These are ONLY available thru the Tipperary Family History Research center at a substantial fee (regardless of outcome).
For Joseph Walker B ????, Co. Antrim, with the father's forename unknown, the earliest B rcd is for 1833.
The four townlands you named are all in Co. Cork (west). Rcds for this region aren't in the database yet. Suggest you wait until they are. This may be a long wait; be patient. Meanwhile try to find some more precise DOB, parent(s) name(s), etc.
Google the Foundation's name to lead you to this database. Register, opt to be notified as rcds are added and browse. Pls post your search results to my genforum msg.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
