A History Foundation that has a database online for almost all Ireland's county genealogy offices has birth, marriages and deaths for N. Tipperary. It is a not for profit but
fee paying website.
Possibly the reason you ae unable to find the records you want is that the Church of Ireland record for Modreeney
do not start until 1846, marriages 1845-1911 and deaths
1827-1911. These would be locally sourced.
Church of Ireland or Anglo/Irish were present in most counties from top to bottom in Ireland starting in about 1600+ and Cromwell's assault on Ireland, plantations of
Protestant farmers and also the British strategy of
wanting more Protestants in Ireland. The dominant church even in the 1800's was mostly the Church of Ireland and RC Churches and Chapels taking second place.
Church of Ireland parish registers are kept for most of Ireland's parishes if they had survived, wars, fires,and
poor conservation. You can email the CofI Representative
Library in Dublin to see if those registers are in their custody. Latest date would be 1899 after which the registers are kept in local custody.
You could try the Tithe's earlier than Griffith's Valuations and date from 1820-30's through Ireland.
These are available in bits and pieces on line but the records were at the PRONI, Belfast and National Archives, Dublin, these come with property descriptions, landlords, neighbours etc. and look similar to the pages of the Griffith Valuation. Ancestry.com now has the Tithe records in their Irish records. I'm not sure if you can go further back than that in official records as nearly all the census from 1841 on were destroyed in the 1911 Four Courts Fire.
The records you seek before 1864 are Parish records.
