Cloyne, Cashel and Emly Roman Catholic Church Records

The National Library recently released for viewing microfilm copies of historic parish registers for the Diocese of Cloyne and those of Cashel and Emly. Access to the records was closed in 1992 after the Archbishop of Cashel and Emly, Dr Clifford claimed copyright. Since then the National Library has taken legal advice and data from the records could only be obtained by paying for a search at the Diocese's Heritage Centre.

The National Library's collection of microfilms covers the surviving pre 1881 baptismal and marriage records of almost all Catholic parishes throughout Ireland.
