Death date for Bridget Stynes

+4 votes
I'm struggling to get a exact date of death for my maternal grandmother, without contacting and upsetting my pre-adoption family. I believe they are unaware of my existence.  I believe she was still alive in 1980, and I have birth and marriage dates confirmed from However a date and place of death have eluded me on all the usual databases. Can anyone suggest where I can look, please?

Thanks Brian.  This is one of a couple of possible options I had already found.  However, the parish, although only 26km away, is different to where the family is based, and the spelling of the name Bridget/Brigid is enough for me to question.
Is there any way to check this on civil records or is it too early for Irish Government records to be available.
