New look for IrishGenealogy

www.irishgenealogy.ie, the state-funded database holding a range of church records for Carlow, Cork, Dublin and Kerry, has a new image this afternoon.

In addition to a few general tweeks in page layout, there's now a rolling banner of other major repositories and state/church-funded institutions running along the bottom.

The most recent update to the database occurred over the weekend (see last Sunday's post) but has received its official stamp of approval from Jimmy Deenihan, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, at a launch event this afternoon. (For some reason, this update is dated 31 August on the website. Edit: has been corrected.)

Sadly, there's no mention of the RC records for Monaghan (Diocese of Clogher), which keep being promised but never materialise in the database.
