25% discounts on subscriptions

RootsIreland, the online database of the Irish Family History Foundation, which manages a network of 34 heritage centres across the island, is offering a 25% saving on its 6-month and 12-month subscriptions.

The database holds Ireland's largest set of online Roman Catholic church records, many of them from registers running until at least 1900, as well as Protestant, Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist and other smaller denominations.

In addition, it holds civil records, census records and substitutes, headstone inscriptions and miscellaneous localised record sets. In total, it offers access to 23 million records, and it is continually growing.

In 2020 alone, more than 500,000 records were uploaded, with new records being added from counties Limerick, Clare, Sligo, Kerry, Wicklow, Westmeath, Kilkenny, South Dublin, Armagh, North Mayo and Cork.

The database is organised by county. To see what records each county collection holds (they can differ significantly), use this handy Online Sources widget.

To take advantage of this generous offer, which will run until 11:59pm on Wednesday 31 March, see the subscription page.
