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 county, 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 Kate Fitzgibbon B 1841 (exact), Bulgaden, Limerick, with a father forenamed James, I found 1 rcd.
Possible siblings to Kate are Bridget 1855, Ellen 1850, John 1846, Maria 1858, Margaret 1864, and Pat(rick) 1844.
For James Fitzgibbon M 1841 (exact), Bulgaden, Limerick, I found 1 rcd.
For Mar(ia) Sullivan M ditto, I found ditto. These rcds are HIGHLY likely to be for your ancestors. A view of the M rcds SHOULD show their parents' names and other info. If it exists, this info will help you identify their B rcds.
For James Fitzgibbon B 1826, Co. Limerick, with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd in Shanagolden parish. The father's forename was Daniel.
For Mar(ia)Sullivan B ditto, I found ditto. The father's forename was Patrick. A view of James and Maria's detailed B rcds SHOULD show their parent's names and other info.
For William Quain M 1867 +/- 4 yrs in Co. Limerick, I found 2 rcds: 1865 Limerick and 1869 Clare. There are NO M rcds for this name in 1867 anywhere in the Ireland in this database.
For William Quain B 1839 (exact) in Co. Limerick with the father forenamed William, I found 1 rcd in Croom parish.
For William Quain B 1811 (exact), Fedamore, Co. Limerick, with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd. The father's forename was Pat(rick).
For Ellen Fitzgerald B 1823 (exact) somewhere in Limerick with the father's forename unknown, I found 2 rcds. The parishes were Pallasgrean & Templebredon, and Rathkeale. The father's forenames were William and Patrick respectively.
