The records burned up for Tursillagh

I have just received a letter from the parish clerk,
Thomas Dowling, at Ballymacelligott Catholic Parish.
There are no church records for my family there. My Thomas
and Ellen Griffin immigrated in 1845 to Syracuse, New York. Records in Ballymacelligot don’t begin until 1868. Thomas and Ellen married and
lived in Tursillagh during the first year of their marriage,
and I have assumed that one or both of them
were probably born in Tursillage.

I will check in Tralee Parish next. I understand that
part of Tursillage lies within that parish.

Thomas Dowling, has suggested that there may be
some records at St. Columbanus Hospital in Killarney.
Has anybody else tried that?
