It may be worth checking to see if you if you can locate further US cert details (e.g. marriage), as these these often include addition family details (parents, place of birth etc) that will help narrow down the correct records in Ireland.

See the topic Introduction to Irish Records for details on searching the BMD index, ordering certs etc

There are a few possible matches in the Sligo area around the right time - e.g.

 Name: Thomas Doud
 Registration District: Sligo
 Event Type: BIRTHS
 Year: 1866
 Volume : 7 / Page : 336

The registration district covers the town of Sligo and some of the surrounding areas.

According to the late Edward MacLysaght one of the greatest authorities on Irish names, a branch of the Sligo O'Dowds settled in Kerry where they adopted the name Doody.

Good luck.

My great-grandfather was TP O'Dowd. I too am looking for his parents names and his actual birth place as there is some question if he was born in Sligo or in Cty Kerry.  If you have more information please let me know - thank you

Did he marry? if so, does his marriage certificate give any indication of parents' names? what about death certificate?
