Hi Judith:

I research the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,000,000 surviving rcds for abt 65% of Irish counties. Rcds are increasingly sparse B4 1840, rare B4 1800.

Note 1 - Without a KNOWN county, the chance of an ancestor's rcds NOT being in this database is AT LEAST 35%.

Note 2 - Only 1/2 of Co. Cork's rcds are in this database.

Note 3 - The RC church kept control over most parish rcds from Tipperary (north). These are ONLY available thru the Tipperary Family History Research center at a substantial fee (regardless of outcome).

For the surname Rooney, there are 12,112 B rcds dating from abt 1742, and 6,332 M rcds dating from 1734. For the B rcds, the frequency distribution is as follows:
Antrim 647
Armagh 552
Cavan_ 192
Cork__ 67
Down__ 1,989
Fermanagh465
Galway___669
Kildare__844
Kilkenny__74
Leitrim2,827
Limerick__49
Longford_155
Louth____790
Mayo_____396
Meath____569
Roscommon163
Sligo____461
Tipperary_62
Tyrone___276
Westmeath458
Wicklow__253

Google the Foundation's name to lead you to this database. Register, opt to be notified as rcds are added and browse. Pls post your search results to my genforum msg.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
