Roman Catholic Parishes Diocese of Cashel and Emly, Co. Waterford, 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\’

Parishes for which records exist and the county or counties they cover or may cover

Suggestions as to possible names for those abbreviated here:
Rich.=Richard ; Thos. = Thomas ; Jas. = James ; Jn. = John or Jonathan ; Pat./Patk. = Patrick ; Edm. = Edmond or Edmund ; Jermh. = Jeremiah ; Ml. =Michael ; Rob. = Robert ; Nichs. = Nicholas ; Walt. = Walter
