Have you tried as it is the only one line church records for Kerry.

Different places, if husband's parish different from wife she moved to his parish. Babies were usually delivered at home at the wife's mother's house. If different Parish's could explain the different place names, after 1864 birth were registered not just church records and that the Poor Law Union/civil Registration District was used

Castlegregory was a townland and a village in the Parish of Killiney, PLU/District of Dingle.

Griffith Valuation: done in Kerry 1853:

There were 24 Timothy Griffin's (popular name there) but
not in the Parish of Killiney. There were 17 Griffin's in the Parish: Thomas, Patrick x 5, Daniel, Jeremiah, Catherine (possibly a widow as properties rarely in women's names) & John. Look to the names that Timothy and Elizabeth called their children.

Callaghan, Just checked the Poor Law Union of Dingle to reduce the number of possibles:

There are a John and Michael in the Parish of Killiney as well as the Griffin's. I would look to these as the possible father's names for Elizabeth. There are other names but they are not in Killiney. Denis, Johanne, Patrick, Eugene, John, Michael & Mary.

Lots of Jeremiah's if born after 1864.....

Lots of both Jeremiah and Andrews in the Prison records!!

Not going to try for Mary & Margaret.

Catherine Griffin born 10 Feb 1871, Castlegregory #273
correct parents

You can apply to the General Registry Office in Dublin and
obtain a copy of a birth registered after 1864. I believe they will do a bit of a search for you as well, read the
website information.

There are Griffin's in the Kerry telephone book in the Dingle area. The online telephone book froze while I was using it so couldn't check the Callaghan.

other resources: (1823-1837) (1901/1911)

other resources: + Kerry United Kingdom+Ireland+Kerry
not just census, sometimes parish records

good luck.
