The 19th century records are available on this website in a searchable format. The parish records from 1831 to the end of 1864 are recorded in a ledger which is essentially an accounts sysem for the parish as baptisms , marriages and certificates issued were subject to a fee.

Some years (1847..1854) have no records at all , most likely due to the famine . People were too destitute to be in a position to pay for church services . Shrule is incredibly lucky to have parish records of Marriages , Baptisms and other church related miscellania going back to the parish Church’s foundation in 1831 .
