I saw this on Irish Central – Irish birth, marriage and death certificates now available online for free: https://www.irishcentral.com/roots/genealogy/irish-geneaology-resource-free.
A plethora of Irish genealogy records has been made available online thanks to a joint initiative from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.
A wealth of historical registers of marriages, births, and deaths are available to view for free on the website Irish Genealogy and covers births from 1864 to 1918, deaths from 1878 to 1968, and marriages from 1864 to 1943.
The new additions include deaths in 1967 and 1968, births in 1917 and 1918, and marriages from 1864 to 1869 and 1942 to 1943, meaning that those looking to delve into their family’s history online can now go deeper than ever before.
The death certificate of Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh, who died in 1967, is now freely accessible to the public through the extensive records, as is the death certificate of novelist Walter Macken who also passed away in 1967.
