The Diocese of Clogher (Church of Ireland) covers all of the county except the town of Clones and the surrounding countryside. There are church records (baptisms, marriages, burials) for Clones going back to the 1600's but I have been unable to find the same sort of record for Clogher.

According to Ryan "Irish Records", all the RC records have been indexed by Monaghan Ancestry and all are avail through the National Library of Ireland and LDS. Clones start with births at 1848. CI exists from 1829. Salt lake (897416) has some births in the range of 1682-1733, 1755-1873, marriages 1682-1704, d 1682-1704 and 1796-1990)
