Catholic Parish Registers at the National Library of Ireland

Here is a unique resource for those with Irish ancestry.

On the landing page you can use the search bar to enter the name of a parish, or you can use the map by scrolling down the page a bit. Click on county you are interested in and it will expand to she Dioceses. Click on a Diocese to get further information and then click on the Diocese name in the popup box. You will be taken to view-able microfilm of the register(s).

There are a variety of controls to play with. You cannot search by name, but you can narrow your search by selecting the type of event (eg baptism) you are interested in, the year, and the month. There is a download and print capability.
