About: The National Library of Ireland holds microfilm copies of over 3500 church registers from parishes in Ireland. The library has now digitised these registers as images which provide records of baptisms and marriages from the majority of Catholic parishes in Ireland and Northern Ireland up to around 1880. The available registers are not searchable by individual’s names. Instead, they are browseable by diocese, parish and date, searchable by parish and it is possible to zoom from a country map to parish level. This blog entry relates to the parish of Tomacork in West Wicklow.

Contents:  These registers cover baptisms and marriages from 1785 to 1888. This date range is indicative only and coverage may be incomplete. Please refer to the NLI site for specific coverage.
