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).
For Mary O'Loughlin B 1830 +/- 4 yrs in Co. Sligo with the father forenamed Mich(ael), I found 5 B rcds: 1831, 3-1832, and 1833.
For Michael O'Loughlin (+variants) in Co. Sligo, I found 1 M in 1832, Sligo parish.
For Mary Royan (+variants) in Co. Sligo, I found 0 M rcds in Sligo parish.
The M rcds are a NO MATCH. M rcds in Sligo parish don't start until 1831. The B rcd for Mary O'Loughlin MAY be in those identified above. A view of the detailed rcds SHOULD show BOTH parent names. This fact will validate/invalidate a rcd.
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.
