Reading a Parish Register 1841

The photograph below is one that I took of a Co. Cork Parish Baptismal register. The  entries are from 1841.

This register is in good condition and is relatively easy to read. If you aren't accustomed to Irish names, you might find it a bit difficult.

It's worth trying to transcribe the records for yourself to give you some practice. Images that will be coming on line soon may not be so clear.
