Shrule (Ballymahon) Parish Records

(Pic from the RCB Library Website)

Our St. Catherine’s Church in Ballymahon has been highlighted in the RCB Library’s Library’s Archive  of the Month!

The parish is the parish of Shrule and is referred to as Parish “Number 1” due to the early deposition of the records.  There is a fascinating account at <RCB Library Record of the Month> of what these records reveal – a fascinating read.
