Catholic Parish Registers in the National Library of Ireland now online at registers.nli.ie
http://registers.nli.ie. The registers contain records of baptisms and marriages from the majority of Catholic parishes in Ireland and Northern Ireland up to 1880. These registers are considered to be the single most important source for family history researchers prior to the 1901 census. The registers may be searched by parish and are not indexed. Transcriptions of some Clare parish registers may be seen on Clare County Library's website at http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/genealogy/don_tran/bmd/index_bmd.htm.
