You are on the hairy edge of finding records. Civil Registration in Ireland
began in 1864. In the early years
many were not registered because of ignorance of the law. Family History
Library http://www.familysearch.org has the civil indexes for BMD in
Ireland from 1864 to 1922 for all Ireland and to 1958 for the Republic of
Ireland. (I'm not sure of Northern Ireland after 1922). At the page shown
select search records pulldown list and click on record search pilot.
Otherwise contact Public Record Office of Northern Ireland
