Fanlobbus Parish Genealogy

The records listed below are kept in the parish.  Unfortunately, a lot of our pre-1860s records were deposited in the Public Records Office in Dublin’s Four Courts for safe keeping sometime prior to its destruction in 1922 and were destroyed in the fire. 

If you wish to enquire about our records not yet available on our website, please email us your query at giving as much information as possible.  The records are available to be viewed in person by prior arrangement. The Church of Ireland has set a standard search fee of €20 per hour.
