I research the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,800,000 surviving rcds for abt 70% of Irish counties. Rcds are increasingly sparse B4 1840, rare B4 1800. Cos. Donegal and Derry were recently added to the database.
Note 1 - Without a KNOWN county, the chance of an ancestor's rcds NOT being in this database is AT LEAST 30%.
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 Bart(holomew) Hearn M 1853 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland, I found NO rcds within a reasonable range.
For Cat(herine) Galvin it is impossible to find a match since Bart's rcd didn't survive, or hasn't been transcribed.
For Cat(herine) Galvin B 1832 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 18 rcds - too many to summarize here.
For Bartholomew Hearn B 1831 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd, 1831, Co. Tipperary. Father's forename was Michael.
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.
