Mar­riage de­tails

The parish priest some­times recorded the de­tails of the mar­riage of one of his con­gre­ga­tion (in­clud­ing those who em­i­grated) be­side their bap­tismal en­try.

Fam­ily ad­dress

The ad­dress of the fam­ily is some­times recorded at the end of the bap­tismal en­try.

Names of parish priests

The names of the parish priests who con­ducted the bap­tism, D Moloney and M Hare, are recorded af­ter each en­try.


The spon­sors are God­par­ents, of­ten sib­lings or cousins of the par­ents. In this en­try the parish priest has recorded the maiden name of a mar­ried spon­sor, in­di­cat­ing that she was prob­a­bly an aunt of the child.

Fam­ily sur­name

In some reg­is­ters, the parish priest un­der­lined the fam­ily sur­name, mak­ing it eas­ier to search the reg­is­ter for a spe­cific in­di­vid­ual.

Thomas McDon­agh

Here we see the bap­tismal en­try for Thomas McDon­agh, one of the lead­ers of the 1916 Ris­ing, record­ing the fact that he was ex­e­cuted in 1916.
