Also, could this be the father?!

William Ferris 66 Years 22 December 1878 24 December 1878 City Cemetery - Public Ground View details

I don't know if this is the father, Ferris is a common enough name here.
There no site that has complete BMD's for Ireland

site you can search for free, but to view the full record you have to pay [has the same information as ancestryireland but you can narrow your search by district/parish

Thank you again for all of your help so far!

Peter, I've given you the names of site that you can search yourself, its more fun doing your own research.

No I agree Maura but I am just producing little results and I find it quite difficult. But thank you. Your help is greatly appreciated.
