More updates to Co. Clare Library's Local Studies site

County Clare Library's Local Studies Department has updated its excellent website with the following:

The 1916 Rising in Clare newspapers – This online archive presents a number of transcribed extracts from three of County Clare's historical newspapers: The Saturday Record, The Clare Champion and The Clare Journal & Ennis Advertiser. The chosen extracts report the events and aftermath of Easter Week and include editorials written from a local perspective.

The transcription and compilation team at the Library included Maureen Comber, Anthony Edwards, Jackie Dermody and Mona O'Connor.

RC Marriage Records for Kilmurry Ibrickan Parish, 1839-1857 – Marie Crowley of Derry is continuing her project to transcribe the marriage register of the Roman Catholic parish of Kilmurry Ibrickan. The latest tranche of transcription sees the available records span from 1839 to 1857 (with gap from August 1852 to September 1855).

The transcriptions are being made from the National Library of Ireland's online images and are presented in three formats: in chronological order, by the surname of the groom, and by the surname of the bride.
