Alexander, it seems most Burkes were in the Civil Parish of Clones. Do you have the correct spelling for the Townland? (It would help, yes.)

There was one Burke family with a gap in birthdates (not that you can hang your hat on it), so here's their family line:

Father: Thomas Burke b. c. 1792
Married: Elizabeth Young at Guardhill, Killeevan Civil Parish, Clones Union, Co Monaghan
Children (found):
_ William Burke b 1814 Boughill, Barony Dartee, Clones Union, Co Monaghan / d before 1900 / Buried: Drumsaul, _ , Clones Union, Co Monaghan / Married: Sarah Longmoore
_ Thomas Burke b c. 1820
_ Robert Burke b c. 1822
[Here's the gap]
_ George Burke b c. 1827
_ Daniel and Joseph Burke b c. 1828
_ Mary ELizabeth Burke b c. 1829 / d before 1900

Then there's another line:
Father: Alexander Burke / Mo: Rachel Lewis
_ James Burke b c. 1838 _, Monaghan / m. 1864 Feb 11 Aghabog, _, Monaghan to Prudence Simons

There are also BURK's and given the challenge of spelling names correctly (seldom met with consistency), one is left with perusing alternative spellings. The BURK's are also numerous in Clones Civil Parish.

Hope something here helps.
