This is a great book, organised by county, covering all of Ireland both North and South. The introduction gives a brief description of types of records available and where they can be located. Each county is further divided by parish giving details of the sources available. There are also included very useful maps showing the various counties and their parishes. All in all a brilliant book and a must for anyone doing Irish research. I wouldn't be without it.

If you have Irish ancestors and are tracing your family tree, I consider ithis book an essential addition to your genealogy library. The book doesn't have the actual church records, but does tell you the earliest date records began BMD for each church in Ireland. It also informs you where the records are being held and the microfilm reference for the Public Records Office in Belfast or the in the case of the 26 Counties of the Irish Republic the microfilm reference for the Irish National Archives. It also contains useful maps and a list of parishes for all 32 counties. Great book, highly recommended.
