On Friday 4th May, Revd Canon Professor Patrick Comerford visited the Royal Irish Academy to deliver the May Expert Workshop on Church records.
In a lively, erudite talk, Revd Patrick discussed how we can use Catholic and Anglican parish records as a source for family and social history.
Using personal anecdotes and case studies, he showed us how to use the records.
The audiences’ warm response to Revd Patrick was a mark of a truly stimulating talk.
For those who were not able to make it, we have made the talk available as a podcast.
Revd Canon Professor Patrick Comerford is Priest-in-Charge of the Rathkeale Group of Parishes and Precentor of Saint Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick.
