You will need more than just the name of the county to find them in Ireland. Did they stay in Ireland? If not, where did they die? Married in Ireland? any other clues?

Do you know what religion they were? If married in Ireland... civil registration of Protestant marriages began 1845 but not until 1864 for Catholic ones.
