Clare County Library adds RC marriage transcriptions

Clare County Library has uploaded 1,500 transcriptions of marriage registers from six Roman Catholic parishes to the Genealogy section of its website.

In each parish case, the records can be viewed in chronological order, in alphabetical order of the brides' surnames and in alphabetical order of the grooms' surnames. In all but one parish, the transcriptions span the mid-1800s to the early 1880s. They are free to view.

The parishes are:
  • Lisdoonvarna Parish, 1860-1882
  • Kilmacduane (Cooraclare) Parish, 1853-1867
  • Killone Parish (Clarecastle and Ballyea), 1854-1882
  • Killard Parish, 1867-1881
  • Tubber (Kilkeedy) Parish 1871-1881
  • Kilfiddane Parish 1869-1880
You can view the transcriptions here.

The Kilfiddane parish records were donated by Kevin Murphy. All the others are the work of volunteer Sheila Duddy.

The transcriptions were made from images of the registers held on the National Library of Ireland's website,
