Limerick Diocesan Archives

The fourteenth-century Black Book of Limerick, a unique link with the medieval church, formed the basis of a reconstituted archive for the diocese of Limerick in the early nineteenth century.

Genealogy: Parish Registers & Research Guide

Baptismal and marriage registers are held in individual parishes and not in a central repository. For conservation and data protection reasons, direct access to the registers is reserved to parish personnel. While parish staff make every effort to facilitate researchers, they are unable to prioritise queries. Access extends to entries up to and including 1910.
