There is great excitement all over the place about the parish records that have been displayed on our website. Records of births, marriages and deaths can now be sourced back as far as the mid 1800s  and will attract worldwide interest.


Further to that, details from the famous Cork Butter Market are also on line, giving an account of all the people who sold butter there from as far back as 1884. Again this record will open up widespread interest.
