Can anyone advise how to access church records for the parish of Bree, Diocese of Ferns in Wexford, PRE-1816?  

I am attempting to locate a baptism that took place in 1815 for Peter Cogly in order to obtain the names of  his parents.

Online I have checked National Library of Ireland,who have the period 1816 onwards.  I also checked Irish,, familysearch, and findmypast.

My one success has been in The Genealogist which, in fact, indicates they have access to who (I believe) is the correct individual.

Would there be a member with a membership to The Genealogist who would be willing to glean this information for me?  Apparently you would need to have a Diamond account.

Thanks for your help.

    Hello Jeffsfamilies,


    And welcome to IrelandXO.  I did a look up on findmypast website and found the following:   
    Peter was baptised on December 20th 1815 to Mom Anne Fortune and Dad Michael Cogley -  see attached file.
    also there seems to be a second child John who was bapised in 1817.
    There are 2 Cogly families up on Ancestry, but dates look way out for some family members. 

    Good luck with your research
