Transcriber Notes:

Detailed Research Editions of these Registers by Jeff Fitzsimmons are available on Clare Library’s Clare Past Forum at

The priests were not consistent with the how they spelt Residence, Surnames or Names. Furthermore there are ample samples where the priests weren't consistent even on the same record, e.g. names/places spelt on the left columns weren't reflected as on the right. This transcription attempted to capture what the priests historically recorded, however, there is an alternative supplied when searches were tested and it was obviously the same families with variations, e.g. the left is transcribed as per the original as it appears (alternative spelling in brackets) MORIFOY (MURPHY).
The Priests’ numbering system throughout the Killaloe Registers were not written by the original priests who authored them, the primary evidence is that the hand-writing is not the same and the numbering system occurred many decades after the events. Based upon notations on the front/back of the registers, there is some transcriptions from Fr. John McInerney. Fr. McInerney served in Killaloe from 1900-06 and, during this time, he had Registers re-bound at Limerick. It is likely that Fr. McInerney was the candidate who undertook the task to number the registers.
