In the Republic of Ireland, indexes to all registered births are held by General Register Office Ireland (see for info). But they have no online ordering or search service available.  
Baptismal Certificates are issued by the parish priest of the church where one was baptised.  
For family trees, photocopies of birth certificates from the GRO are what you need, giving parents names and place of birth.  
If you are not able to get to the GRO office in Dublin, there are many good research agents with online ordering service available. See for details. Agents can then do the manual searching for you.
