That link isn't working
https://www.johngrenham.com/
There is lots of free information on this site, it's particularly useful for seeing what church records survive and where they can be found.
There is a link on each main parish page on the NLI RC parish registers but all churches are covered.
Sometimes it limits the number of times you can see a free result but you can just come back later to see it again.

Very useful site I'd say I use it almost daily.

There's a board for IRISH RESOURCES (and most Irish boards have there own recourse child boards or sections).
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.
