Bad news from re Monaghan

The civil registration index wasn't the only thing to disappear from over the last couple of months.

So did the following notice, which had been sitting in the news section of the site for a good two years:

'Roman Catholic records of Baptism, Marriage and Burial for County Monaghan (Diocese of Clogher) including images of the records will be added to the Church records already available on this website in the near future. Further information will be posted closer to the actual launch date, apologies for the delay in the addition of these records to the website.'

The notice has been removed and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has confirmed to Irish Genealogy News that the records will not be joining the site's database. No explanation is available. It's just a case of 'it ain't gonna happen'. And that's official.
