Question:

I am trying to obtain birth certificate for grandmother born in Ireland in 1910, is there a specific registry that I should try?

Answer:

There is a registry which issues birth certificates in Ireland. There are actually two, one in Belfast (for Northern Ireland counties post 1922 births) and one in the Republic. You can now request birth certificates online at www.certificates.ie for a fee of 20 Euros.
