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 parish, 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).

I had to assume the date range you listed was for a marriage.

For Bri(dget) Kelleher M 1831-1839 in Co. Cork, I found 5 rcds.

For Mich(ael) Murphy M ditto, I found 13 rcds.

Will leave it to you to screen these at the parish level to see if there is an exact match. If so, the match is likely to be for your ancestors.

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.
