Transcriber/Donator: Sheila Duddy
Transcriber Notes:

Transcriber has translated (from Latin) the first names of the parents and sponsors, but has left the first names of the children in Latin so that locating the original entry is not made more difficult. An unusual feature of these baptisms is that sometimes the name of the priest performing the baptism is given first, so extra care is needed when checking the original.

Transcriber found it impossible to distinguish between Regan and Ryan. It is important to take this into account when researching either of those names. There are other mistakes as well.

Seven baptisms had been entered by mistake in the register of marriages 1840 - 1864. Three of those baptisms had been entered also in the register of baptisms, but 4 had not. Transcriber has inserted those 4 baptisms in the Baptism transcription 1840-1864 - they are in red - dates are 24/2/1845 and 17/2/1850 (three entries).

These baptisms can be checked against the civil records of births: (look under Ennis), but transcriber has not done that.
