I search the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 11,500,000 surviving rcds for abt 60% of Irish counties. ALL Irish rcds B4 1840 are sparse.
For Peter Healy ca 1830s, I found 2 M rcds in 1828, nothing in the 1830s. For Catherine Gallagher, I found 0 M rcds for 1828.
For Peter Healy B 1808 +/- 4 yrs, I found 0 B rcds.
For Catherine Gallagher ditto, I found 1 B rcd for a name variant.
For William Healy B 1806 +/- 4 yrs, I found 0 B rcds.
At this early date, few parishes were keeping rcds. Notes for the "sources" state some parish rcds are "kept at the center." Eventually these may be added to the database.
Since your post didn't state whether your info was for Bs or Ms, I didn't search further. Will leave this to you.
Suggest you google the Foundation's name, register, opt to be notified as counties are added, and browse (free).
