Reviews

Irish Church Records continues to be the best guide available on the subject. It should be in all Irish collections.

FGS Forum

This is a book that Irish researchers have been wanting for a long time... a must for any serious Irish researcher. Easy to use and an excellent index.'

'This book is a must resource for anyone researching Irish roots or studying the establishment of various religious denominations in Ireland"

Connecticut Nutmegger

Flyleaf Press is to be congratulated on bringing a book of this quality to the genealogical market.

Colorado Genealogist

..In all, this is a needed guide to the still not fully accessible archives of ireland's religious institutions. ....Ryan's volume is a very welcome addition to the growing literature available on Irish historical source materials.
