- The Four Courts on fire in Dublin
during the Battle of Dublin.
The building had been taken over by Anti-Treaty forces on 14 April
1922. Bombarded by National Army forces on 28 and 29 June, a huge
explosion of stored munitions on 30 June destroyed the Public Records
Office, and with it a huge swathe of Irish cultural memory. Date: 30

Church of Ireland:
One half of all the C of I registers were destroy
in the fire in the Public Record Office of Ireland in 1922. But many of
the local parishes had copies. The records were deposited in the
Representative Church Body Library by December 2000 and are available
for viewing in the library located at Braemor Park Rathgar, Dublin 14.
The books lists the registers available by parish and dates. If you want
to know about a specific parish, post your request to the list, and I'll
post the dates and registers available (don't forget the county).
Presbyterian: The Public Record Office of North Ireland has the
largest single collection. They are on microfilm and are continually
being update. I also have a list by county and parish and can tell you
the dates and types of records available and the PRONI film number. Send
your request to the list. However, many are still in local custody and I
have a list of the parish and the year of when the records start.
