Have you looked for his birth in the indexes? As he was born post 1864, it should have been registered. These are available at the Dublin GRO (in person or Roscommon by post) or on film at your local family history centre. (Church of the latter day saints) http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHC/frameset_fhc.asp for your nearest.

Same for his marriage and death.

Hi Again
Still searching for these two i was hoping i would find them at least on the 1911 census, but not much luck so far.
Are there record's missing sorry if the question has already been asked

Think I found them in 1911 Census in a townland called Ardmore-
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai001849385/
This Ellen O'Connor says she's been married for 7 years and by searcing the civil index for Ellen Foote and William O'Connor separately, then cross-referencing the results comes the marriage details from the index-
Ellen FOOTT married Jan/Mar 1904 Kinsale registration district volume 5 page 287 (same details for a William O'Connor).
With the above you can order the marriage certificate which will give exact place and date of marriage, their occupations, residences at time of marriage, and hopefully fathers' names and occupations.
www.groireland.ie/apply_for_a_cert.htm

Also- birth registration for Ellen FOOTT (same spelling as marriage)- Jan./Mar.1884 Kinsale registration district
