Roman Catholic Diocese of Derry, 1846

This pages differs from my 1836 R.C. parish listing in a number of ways. I have not tried to list the counties that the closest post town is found in and I have not tried to compare this listing either with the 1836 listing or the 1931 listing.

I have however, included extra information on the Diocese as found in the 1846 Roman Catholic Directory on convents and nunneries or academies if mentioned – or, as it is put in the directory – ‘The State of Religion’

Diocese of Derry

In 1836 there were 36 parishes in this Diocese, and in 1931 there were 38. In 1931 this Diocese covered the whole of County Londonderry, part of Donegal and a large part of County Tyrone.
