Roman Catholic Records

Roman Catholic registers are kept in individual parishes and, in most cases, were not deposited in national repositories. This ensured their survival from the Public Record Office fire in 1922 and makes them one of the most comprehensive records available.

The commencement dates for the various parishes in County Sligo are outlined in the following tables.
