I have found many examples of catholic marriage registers with both parents' names. In some cases, only the mother's first name is given, but others have both first name and surname. See example from Rathmines parish https://registers.nli.ie/registers/v...age/3/mode/1up

Same here !! For the records I have come across I would not even get townland names..just The names of Bride, Groom and sponsors !

Earlier church records often only included the names of the bride and groom and the witnesses but things improved with the arrival of the printed parish marriage register with dedicated spaces for each person involved in the ceremony.

I've been working hard on an article I'm preparing for a journal later this year (deadline end of May!) today and have discovered something potentially huge for my own ancestry.

Of course, no one in my family will care!

That hackneyed phrase "There's always one!" must have been written with us in mind.

Anyone have any idea when the next batch of Wexford records are due on Roots.ie?

Not necessarily off topic but not really worthy of its own thread. Would anyone know exactly where Letter (or Leiter), Co. Kerry is? I know it's outside Caherciveen and Reenard but I can't pinpoint it exactly.

There was also a castle there (south of the Bentee Mountain) up until the 1600s but has since been levelled. I can't pinpoint that either.

There's an entry for it on Townlands.ie.

And it's marked on the Geohive map.

I've edited my post above which originally stated that you can't share links to locations on the GeoHive map.

Ever since Ordnance Survey of Ireland updated to the Geohive map I've been bemoaning the fact that you can't share map locations via hyperlinks in the way you could on the old map viewer.

However, it's actually the simplest thing in the world to do - you just click Share at the top of the drop down menu on the top left of the page and it generates the link for you.

Sometimes it's great to be wrong.
