The National Library of Ireland has officially launched their new web-repository of parish records.

Covering more than a 1,000 parishes throughout the island of Ireland, the registers consist primarily of baptismal and marriage records, also including names of people involved, such as witnesses or godparents.

Eneclann were delighted to have been apart of this very exciting launch along with Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Heather Humphreys.
