Clare Library adds more Kilmurry Ibrickan baptisms

Last month I announced that transcriptions from the 1839 Roman Catholic baptism parish registers for Kilmurry Ibrickan had been added to the free-to-view genealogy pages of County Clare Library website (see May blogpost).

Well, Derry-based transcriber Marie Crowley has been hard at work! Transcriptions for an additional six years of baptisms – for 1840 to 1845 inclusive – have now been added to the site, making a total of 2,357 records of people born just prior to the Famine. You can access them here.

As far as I'm aware, these records are not available online anywhere else.

If you haven't already done so, you should read the May blogpost as it contains useful information about the way the priest(s) in this parish recorded baptisms.

UPDATE, 24 June
: And another year of register entries (1846) has been added today, recording another 379 baptisms.
