Have the Records been digitized ?
I can view copies of Irish Parish registers on https://registers.nli.ie/ but I would like to know if they have been entered into a searchable and more legible database. If so, where would the results be viewable?. Are they cross referenced with any of the various existing collections?
I would be happy to help with this effort if it is planned or in the works.
They have been digitized and indexed and searchable on both FindMyPast.com and Ancestry.com. On FindMyPast.com, they are completely free to search, view, and download. Ancestry and FindMyPast shared the work of creating the index, meaning the same index is present on both websites - errors, warts, and all. Corrections to each website are handled separately, meaning as they change, they will no longer be exactly the same
They are currently being indexed anew by FamilySearch. https://www.familysearch.org/indexing/my-indexing
In fact, you will find multiple threads in this Community of folks complaining that Ireland is monopolizing the indexing.1
On FamilySearch you can view all Ireland indexed records here:
The parent page:
shows the indexing projects Aine's image refers to. I am not seeing any image only records listed - so either they are indexed already and searchable (I have seen search results - but I think those do refer to the FindMyPast index) - or they are in process of indexing. Thanks NLI for allowing indexing!0
@Sarah Lanthier Apparently I was not sufficiently clear. No subscription is required to view these records on FindMyPast.com. Simply sign up for a free account, and you can search by name/location, view, and download the full series of records.0
There is a 14 day free trial only, available.0

I paid them $129 two years ago and they won't allow me a free subscription now....0
It is not a subscription. It is a free account. You can even sign in with your old, expired, account and access the Irish parish registers.0
I logged in with an expired account. You can see I have no subscription.
I searched for my 2nd GGF's record, in County Louth:
And viewed his record:0
It won't allow me to look at Prison records. Keeps popping up with options to subscribe to three different levels0
Sorry. Here's a better screenshot.0
Again, you do not need to subscribe. Just sign in with a free - even old expired - account to view the Catholic Parish records.
I never said anything about being able to view prison records.0
