CONFIRMATION LISTS IN IRELAND; IGP UPDATES

     Confirmation lists, both Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland,  in Ireland are difficult to locate (as they can be in the USA and other countries, also). Many confirmation lists are kept at the diocesan, rather than the parish, level. I suspect the reason for this is because confirmation is a sacrament given by a bishop or his representative. Some local parishes or parochial schools have kept informal lists of confirmandi. I have only found a few myself while searching Irish church records, and even then, the lists were rather random and only for a few years.
     So, I was very excited to see that the volunteers at the Ireland Genealogy Projects have posted confirmation lists found in County Fermanagh. See the IGP updates below:
