Have you tried a Search like this on

https://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/

this Search gets you Baptism, Marriage and Burial results for Nicholson from 1820 to 1864
Area - CORK & ROSS (RC)   for example

one can adjust Years etc

you must solve Captcha to prove you're not a Robot then use initials to sign in..... all Free, not Reg required!!

Have you tried the actual Parish Registers as not all Parishes are on that site?

https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0040  St. Finbarr's  or click on one of the other Parishes on the map thereon
