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 Bri(dget) Doolan B 1823 +/- 4 yrs, Co. Kilkenny, with a father forenamed Thomas, I found 2 rcds: 1824 Johnstown parish, and 1827 Slieverue.
For Thomas Doolan M 1823 +/- 3 yrs in Co. Kilkenny, I found 6 rcds: 1819, 1822, 1823, 1824 and 2-1825.
For Ellen Burns M ???? in Co. Kilkenny, I found NO rcds within a relevant range. They may have married elsewhere.
For Thomas Doolan B 1800 +/- 4 yrs in Co. Kilkenny with the father's forename unknown, I found 3 rcds: 1798 St. Canice's parish, 1801 Muckalee, and 1803 Muckalee.
Suggest you search AUS passenger rcds and RC parish registers for evidence of their events. This will help you better define her DOB, DOM, and parent's info.
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.
