The postings below are updated once a week or so, with the addition of new entries. Genealogy interested readers should also have a look at the main website, particularly the articles page, where copies of articles and links to others are maintained. Lots of family names mentioned there.

Genealogically minded tourists who visit Dublin will surely find themselves in the Dublin Tourism Centre. This is in the former church St Andrews. Or, the descecrated church St Andrews, whichever way you want to look at it. Whatever about that, genealogists will be interested to know that the carpark around the church is actually a graveyard, now tarmacked in for the convenience of tourism officials. The rubble of old gravestones lies beneath the blacktop. Beneath this and beneath the parked cars there are many graves of Dubliners, and there is now a listing of these available. Not from Dublin Tourism or indeed any official Dublin sources (probably due to embarassment at the vandalism) but from this here website. The unpublished (hardcopy) listing has been compiled from many obscure sources and this is the only place it is available. Contact Morrigan Books for further info.
