I am moving your thread over to our Research forum in the hope that someone can help.

Do you have any certificates for the family, e.g. birth or marriage certificates.
A birth certificate would give you the name of mother and father, as well as mother's maiden name.

Possible birth:
Mary Josephine Healy
Registered Quarter/Year:Apr - Jun 1913
Registration District: Dublin North
Volume:2 Page:477

You probably need to buy the birth cert using this reference at (deleted - see below) but it is a big investment on a gamble. The Irish government seem to have decided to price family researchers out. Those with Scottish ancestors are the luckiest.

That site are quoting €44 for a certificate !!

Go to the official Irish GRO site - http://www.groireland.ie/apply_for_a_cert.htm

They now charge €20 for a full certificate, BUT you can also order a photocopy of the register entry (which contains exactly the same information , it just isn't valid as a legal certificate) for only €4 .

Was just about to say the same about the 44€ certificate!! Another rip off website!

Antony, re the 4€ photocopy of the register entry - is that still available? I thought I read somewhere it was being discontinued.

Ignore that, I see it is still mentioned on the application form!

A fellow genealogist confirmed about a month ago that the photocopies are still available , although I haven't ordered one personally for a while. You do have to order by post/fax though.

There was a lot of moaning/discussion amongst genealogists when they doubled the normal certificate price up to €20. Coincidently they did it just as FMP made the Irish BMDindexes available ....a bit cynical, or an attempt to reduce their huge budget deficit ?
