My great grandfather, Michael G. Martin, was born in Enniscorthy, County Wexford in about 1832. His father's name was John and his mother's name was Bridget Goff.
The family arrived in Ontario, Canada in about 1845 and later settled in Saginaw, Michigan USA.
Is the name of the person you are looking for Martin Lacey or Lacey Martin? I just took a chance that his surname was Martin. I am probably wrong, so please excuse me if that is the case.
