Parish records do not all contain the same information – some list only the names of those directly involved in the event – some list the townlands or addresses of these people – some marriage records will list the names of the parents of those being married and the towland that they came from – while, then there are parish records that list only the names of the people inivolved in the event giving no indcation as to where they lived.

Where anything is known as to the state of the film – i.e. whether the script is eay to read, the ink faded, the entries clearly defined, then this information is listd on these pages – it will be added to as time goes by. Some indication is also give as to the information contained on the film, however, this can only be taken to refer to the time frame that the extracts cover as different Priests changed the format of their entries.

Please note, that while it may be very exciting to discovre that records exist for the parish you are interested in, continuously from the mid-1700’s to 1880 – do not place too much emphasis on that fact, records that are so old tend to be in bad condition, sometimes so faded as to be illegible. Unfortunately, the same, unfortunately can also be said for some records that were created in the mid-1800’s.

Note: Abbeyleix, Co. Laois parish records are possibly of interest to Kilkenny people. The civil parish of Abbeyleix takes in parts of Co. Kilkenny as well as Co. Laois.

There would seem to be some marriage records amongst the early (first set of) baptismal records – very few though.

The townland names are given in these records, civil parishes covered include Fertagh and Erke – Erke is a civil parish that spreads from County Kilkenny through County Laois (Queen’s) and the records for the townlands in Queen’s are found in those of Johnstown Co. Kilkenny.

For the most part, the first section of these records, Baptisms 1814-1845 are lovely to work with, relatively easily readable, very faded in spots, but not too many. There is only one entry for 1814 though

Misc. possible marriage Records found to date. I’m assuming/thinking that these are marriage entries because no childs’ name is given:SS= Sponsors – a term normally used for baptismal entries. These may actually be baptismal entries for couples who converted to Catholicism, though if that’s the case, it’s doubtful that the maiden name of the woman would be given?

1815: Feb. 7th. Johnstown. Thos. Slattery & Cath. Cond?on. SS : Denis Gorman & Betty Bergin

1815: March 10th : Glashare. Jno Conner & Mary Kavanagh. SS : Jno Mihan & Bridget Bergin

1818: Rapatrick (Rathpatrick). Michl. Maher & Margaret Kelly. SS : Michl. Quinlan & Mary Maher

The earlier marriage entries in this register cover Carrigeen and Mooncoin, whilst for the section from 1816 on there is a note at the front of the register

Parish Register of Rathkyran & Mooncoin

Commencing Feb 10th 1816

Being the year which the Rev. Nicholas Carroll was removed from Ballyragget to that of Rathkyran.

It may be that this was later called the parish register of Carrigeen and Mooncoin as listed in Grenham’s ‘Tracing your Irish Ancestor’s’, however, the first set of baptismal entries cover Rathkyran according to the note on the first page. Grenham gives the wrong film reference for this set of parish registers.

My comment on this film

Children’s names in columns on side of page. Town-land named

Difficult to read the main entries and pages have not been filmed in order. Months are mixed up and some pages have been filmed twice.
