South West Cork records added to RootsIreland.ie

RootsIreland.ie has announced the addition of 61,505 Roman Catholic baptism and marriage records from South-West County Cork have been uploaded to its database.

While the parishes concerned are in County Cork, they are in the diocese of Kerry, so the records have been added to Mallow Heritage Centre's Cork North East database. (Okay, the geography's a bit confusing if you don't know the area, but the important thing is these records are now available to search.)

The parishes and breakdown of records in this welcome update are as follows:
  • Adrigole (baptisms, 1830-1910; marriages, 1831-1910)
  • Allihies (baptisms, 1822-1913; marriages, 1823-1872)
  • Ballydesmond (baptisms, 1888-1915; marriages, 1889-1915)
  • Boherbue (baptisms, 1864-1904; marriages, 1863-1910)
  • Castletownbere (baptisms, 1820-1908; marriages, 1817-1915)
  • Eyeries (baptisms, 1860-1915; marriages, 1823-1910)
  • Millstreet (baptisms, 1854-1903; marriages, 1855-1903)
