Irish Catholic Directory and Almanac

Catholic mothers always hoped one of her many sons would become a priest. If you can't find your Irish ancestor's son, try the Catholic Directory and Almanac. 

The Irish Catholic Directory and Almanac has lists of clergy, lists of Catholic Peerage...lords, knights, members of parliament, etc., names and dates of holy days and also stats on population and immigration.

The Alphabetical List of Clergy has names from not only Ireland, but Australia, Canada, USA and other countries.

Here is a site that contains the abbreviations used in the almanacs.

There is a section on each college with names of professors and officials, etc, and a list of priests ordained within the year, listed by college.

It also has an obituary section..

Another publication that may be of interest, is the book of Memorials of Catholic Irish Martyrs
