Monaghan parish records: hope springs eternal

The rumblings and mumblings, not to mention the grumblings, continue with regards to the Roman Catholic bmds for Co Monaghan (Diocese of Clogher) so long promised for the free government-sponsored IrishGenealogy database.

I am reliably informed that these are not languishing, forgotten, in some civil servant's 'pending' tray. Work to prepare them for upload is on-going and the team believe they are not far off completion. There's even talk of announcing a date, for heaven's sake.

'Not long now', seems to be the message.

(Can't help feeling we've been here before, so I'll believe it when I see it.)
