(Most online Irish RC register records stop at 1880/1.)

The database holds more than 23 million records, and continues to grow. In the last two years alone, one million have been added from Counties Limerick, Clare, Sligo, Kerry, Wicklow, Westmeath, Kilkenny, Monaghan, Armagh, Cork, Laois and Offaly, plus East Galway, South Tipperary, South Dublin and North Mayo.
