Are you saying that someone visiting the National Library will now be
able to search these records? What if you cannot get to Ireland how
does this help you? Are these records that previously were not
available to The Tipperary Heritage Center in Tipperary Town? Can we
now request records from either the Library or the Center that they
didn't have access to before?
I have paid for and received records from the Heritage Center in Ireland
but they were unable t locate some of the records I needed. I am hoping
this is an addition to their library of records.

I'm passing along this latest bulletin which should be great news for a
number of people.

'National Library has re-opened Roman Catholic parish registers for
Cashel & Emly, Cloyne and Kerry'
The National Library of Ireland has finally re-opened public access
to the microfilms of the parish registers of the 'closed' dioceses of
Cloyne, Kerry & Cashel & Emly. For the past 16 years there has been
no public access at all to the microfilms of the registers from the
diocese of Cashel & Emly and only limited access to those for Kerry
and Cloyne. The issue of access to the microfilms for these dioceses
has been a hot issue for many years now and is one that CIGO has
raised previously with the Library. The `re-opening' of these
microfilms after all these years is terrific news for those who are
searching for Catholic ancestors in County Kerry and parts of
Counties Tipperary, Limerick and Cork.
