Thank you very much for your message. I hope that someone with information makes a connection with you and helps you to find some more information on this family. I?m sorry to hear that you had no luck during your visit.
Have you tried looking on Irish Genealogy website? They have begun to upload church records to their website free of charge. So far only Dublin city, Co. Kerry and Carlow and parts of Cork have been uploaded. Ballyclough records are not uploaded however it may be no harm to do expand your search a bit. I did a quick search already and there were a couple of Thomas Roach?s baptised in the 1700?s. However, without further information I do not know if they are relevant:
