Shane,
I've found this site - an online ordering facility is this the right one?
http://www.hse.ie/eng/services/Find_a_Service/bdm/Certificates_ie/
it says they accept payment online but I'm sure you said somewhere else that wasn't possible yet?
or did I miss something?

Ah, first problem, a mandatory field for Mothers Birth Name, which if you don't know !!
can't complete the form.  Also need to give an approximate date of birth, not quarter, page volume etc.

I've never used that site, so I dont know any details..

As far as I know there was some differences in ordering - i.e. there was no place to enter the specific reference numbers etc

You might also want to check what type of certs they provide. The research certs usually provided by the GRO for 4 are scans/photocopies of the original registers which can be useful. There are other types of certs - e.g. legal cert, which are transcripts of the originals and may cost a bit more

That site seems to be restricted to where all the details are known, there is no variation for anything else or if you omit any of the required fields if the information is not known.
So back to your original link, but even that form requests details I don't know, e.g.
* items marked must be completed.
Mothers first name and birth surname, and address place of birth or hospital.
There is no space to just complete the volume and page number on the form.
Maybe I'll just write a letter instead.

I think the GRO (Roscommon) is your best bet.. list the references and ask for a research cert.

see : Ordering Certs from GRO Roscommon

(ignore the irrelevant details on the order form - just include the details mentioned earlier)

Might be worth ringing them... number on their web-page : http://www.groireland.ie/

Just phoned ...

really helpful.
for the photocopy it's euro 4.00 if you know the volume, page and quarter.
If you require them to search (ie in my case I have several possible matches for births, 1884, 1885 1886 for Patrick Kehoe ) for each search they do it's an extra 2 euro.
to match with my Patrick father Thomas Kehoe, Shoemaker.
so many thanks
off to write my letter which they suggested would be best.
