25% discount on a 1-year subscription is offering a 25% discount on a 12-month subscription to its database.
The site is by far the best database for transcribed Irish church records of all the most genealogically relevant denominations.

Its collection not only provides extensive geographical coverage across the island, its 'time-spread' is wider, too, with the records of many congregations spanning comfortably into the 20th century. For example, it holds its own transcriptions of Roman Catholic baptisms and marriages and links to the National Library of Ireland's images of the registers to the full extent of that image collection (c1880).

Unlike other databases, however, most of the RootsIreland transcriptions continue for another 20, 30, or even 40 years past the NLI cut-off.

In addition to its huge holding of church records, RootsIreland offers civil records transcriptions in 19 of the historical counties of Ireland, plus significant collections of census subsctitutes and graveyard inscriptions.

The database currently contains more than 42million records, and updates regularly with records transcribed by its network of 34 genealogy centres. Already this year, these centres have added more than 40,000 new records from counties Laois, Offaly, East Galway and Waterford. By taking a subscription with RootsIreland, you help these centres to continue to provide a high-standard genealogy service.

The special offer runs until 11:59pm Irish time on 25 March. Details.

RootsIreland holds online records for all areas of the island of Ireland except South West Cork, County Kerry and Dublin City.
