Yes, every ten years beginning in 1821. However, the only ones which survived deliberate destruction by the Brits, or the Four Courts Fire of 1922 are the ones for 1901 and 1911.

For John Grimes B 1842 +/- 4 yrs, Co. Louth, with the father's forename unknown, I found 3 rcds: 1838 Drogheda, 1838 Louth, and 1840 Darver RC parishes. Father's respective forenames were ?, Tho(mas), and Jas.

For John Grimes M 1862 +/- 3 yrs, Co. Louth, I found 1 rcd, 1860, Dundalk RC parish.

For Mary Clark M ditto, I found NO matching rcd. This infers they married elsewhere in Ireland, or in America.
