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 Mich(ael) Grace B 1836 +/- 1 yr somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 31 rcds.

For Mary Sullivan B 1844 ditto, I found 197 rcds.

Some of these MAY be for your ancestors - no guarantees. You will need an exact DOB, parent(s) name(s) or placnames to choose which, if any, are 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.
