The source at this link is someone else's tree and not a vital record document from a municipality, county/shire, or country.  Try to find a formal document that indicates he was from Ireland.

I found a birth and baptism record in Shropshire, England, for this man.

Are you "sure" you need Ireland?  For this man, I found 3 records  in England (see below), which I believe more accurately indicate his lineage in England.  [[Connections with Ireland may still be valid, perhaps through a wife or farther back in generations.]]

1)  Moses Wray, born Sep 12, 1698.  Baptised two days later (Sep 14, 1698) in Southill,Bedford,England.  His parents were Moses Wray and Ann(e).  See

http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=FS1EnglandBirthsandChristenings&h=868523&indiv=try

Source:  England, Select Births and Christenings, 1538-1975; listed in an INDEX. The original image is not available.

2)  Same source (index) has a baptism record of Moses Wray (Jr), son of Moses Wray and Mary  baptised 30 August 1725 in Shropshire, England (Shropshire: Wroxeter, Hodnet, Weston under Red Castle - Parish Registers, Lichfield Diocese).  See http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=epr_Shropshire&h=532180&indiv=try

3)  Same source (index) has a marriage record for his parents' names as Moses Wray and Anne Eason, married on 14 Jul 1690 at Southill, Bedford, England.  (It names the groom's parents as Andrew Rey and Ann.)  See   http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=FS1EnglandMarriages&h=22436762&indiv=try
