A new free website with Irish Church Records online

A free website now exists which is putting church records online. Dublin and parts of Kerry are now on the site. We have tried it and found it very useful.

The following is a recent posting on the site:-

In the first phase of the project, church records for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kerry are available as are a subset of the Church of Ireland parishes in Kerry. The remainder of the extant Church of Ireland records for Kerry will be made available in due course. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Kerry includes parishes in western and north-western areas of County Cork.
The church records for a subset of the Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland parishes in Dublin City are also available. Work is progressing on the completion of the Dublin City records.
The release of further records for online access will proceed on a phased basis. Please refer to the “update of progress” section in this website for news of upcoming releases.
