When writing to the Parish Priests, please remember to enclose an Self Addressed Envelope (sae) and International Reply Coupons (IRC). Be patient and a small donation helps speed things up! Donations should be around the £20 mark.
It's quite common not to get a reply from a Parish Priest or else to be waiting months for one. Most Irish parishes are undermanned nowadays as a consequence of the drop in vocations so Parish Priests just don't have the time to reply to us. In order to reply in the first place, they would have to go down into some musty cellar, search through some dusty old books, peer at damp-spotted, decaying pages and finally translate what they get from Latin into English.
The alternative is, in the case of most of the Diocese of Cloyne, is to pay the Mallow Heritage Centre for a search of their computerised records. Otherwise, you will have to go to the National Archives in Dublin, which has filmed the records, or else commission a genealogist in Dublin to search them on your behalf.
