St Brigid's Girls' Home
The Admission Registers from St Brigid's Girls' Home comprise three volumes. They record information such as: date of admission; name of child; date of birth; address of parents or guardians; parents' names; place of birth; reason for admission; place of baptism; date of discharge; to whom discharged; and remarks. Note that copies of these registers are held by the Catholic Children's Homes Enquiry Service.
Access to information is generally restricted to the person to whom the information relates, or family members. Access to the original records is generally not permitted. Information is extracted from the records by the Archivist and passed on to the enquirer.
