And I didn't see him in the indexes at ancestry or findmypast. Rootsireland is said to be better than both of them, anyway.

Ancestry and Find my Past have indexes to some Catholic records. I have looked but canít see Arthur, sadly.
If you donít have indexes, you just have to go through - can be difficult.

There are these:

Thomas b December quarter 1847 Liverpool (canít see a baptism)

Henry b 1852 Liverpool
Terence b 1854 Liverpool

So Arthur born 1850 +/- 1 year?

Kilcoo parish records seem to have a gap between 1840s and 1851 - see page here

It might be that they are out of order or missing altogether

Added - I just tried searching for (any) 1850 baptisms but none show.

I looked through both, for th period 1847 to 1852, without success.

I saw no gaps in the Kilcoo baptism register. However, the regular and quite readable handwriting suggests to me that this is a later copy of the original register. No Arthur Fegan found, alas.

If you donít have indexes, you just have to go through - can be difficult.

The Catholic Registers and Index are a Free collection on Findmypast. Full access without a sub, just have to register & logon.

Findmypast & Ancestry jointly did the transcriptions from the NLI microfilm so transcriptions are in theory the same though the search interfaces can generate different variants. RootsIreland are from the actual parish registers with locally done transcription so in general are more accurate.
