Hi Judith, welcome to our Community! Before 1864, civil registration as we know it wasn’t introduced in Ireland. All of the records were kept in the form of baptismal, marriage and burial records at local parish churches, and what remains has been collected in genealogical centres assigned to their county. If you get in touch with the right genealogical centre they would be more than happy to help you with your research.

Another great source of online information is Family Search, where you can dive in the digital historical records to uncover more about your ancestors. Take a look at the other genealogy threads on our forum as well for more useful information and tips about how to trace your Irish roots. I hope this helps!

Hi Judith,

Start with the Australian records. If you can trace an Australian civil death for John Molloy (b. 1813, emigrated to Australia after 1841) and for Johanna Bradley Molloy (b. 1817, emigrated to Australia after 1841), they should contain the name of one or both of the deceased person's parents. Once you have this, you have enough corroborative evidence to clearly pick out your ancestor from anyone else of the same name, born around the same time.

The time that you're searching predates civil registration.
You didn't indicate what faith your ancestors were, but I'm presuming they were part of the Catholic majority?
All RC parish registers have been placed online, and can be easily accessed remotely.
Dublin City, Carlow, Cork & Kerry are available for free online at www.irishgenealogy.ie
All RC parishes for the entire island of Ireland are available free online at www.findmypast.ie
Or, you can pay a subscription €125 to access all RC parishes for Ireland on www.irishroots.ie 

Your search is very doable. It's possible to trace virtually all Irish families back to teh 1830s and earlier these days.
Good luck,
Fiona.
