Riggs / Grimes or Graem from IRELAND

I am actually looking for Riggs who were born in IRELAND.
Armagh, Ireland.
The children were James, Warren, Samuel, William, Alexander, John, Margaret and Mary.
The parents were Agnes Grimes/Graem or Graham or maybe something else?? and Alexander Riggs, said to be of Scotland. NOT Virgina USA.

The child Mary Riggs married her cousin James Hill, in IRELAND. They moved their family to Ontario Canada, the Rockwood, Guelph area.
I believe Margaret Riggs and her husband? (and children?) moved to Canada at the same time, so the RIGGS were STILL in IRELAND in 1829.

I am looking for ACTUAL information on this family and I am not trying to sound harsh but I have come across a lot of bogus information on my own family tree and people who add my family in because they just thought the information was correct.
Looking for REAL information on the correct people and I would be very grateful for any REAL information that can be had.
I thank any, in advance, who has actual information that may be helpful
Thank you!!!!
