Civil registration of births was required starting 1864, so Ryan's birth should have been recorded. You can search at irishgenealogy.ie.

The tree you shared shows John Ryan was born in Belfast. I went on the site that Patricia cited for the years 1870-1880 and there were 982 John Ryan baptismal records registered in Ireland in that time period. However, only 2 of the 982 were in the Belfast registration district.
See the third record on this link https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_return... for a John Ryan born in Belfast on January 28 1876. Possible lead.
