I searched the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 11,500,000 surviving rcds for abt 60% of Irish counties. Rcds B4 1840 are sparse.
The surnames you cited are not always interchangeable, but can denote separate lines. The IFHF has a Standard Surname Index. Using this I find:
Crilly 342 B, 157 M _ _ B Name Rose 6
Crilley 8 B, 3 M _ _ _ B Name Rose 0
Crowley 171 B, 75 M _ _ B Name Rose 6
Google the Foundation's name to lead you to this database.
