    The National Library’s holdings constitute the most comprehensive collection of Irish documentary material in the world, and offers an invaluable representation of Ireland’s history and heritage, including the Catholic Parish Registers of baptisms and marriages from the majority of Catholic parishes in Ireland and Northern Ireland up to 1880.
