The Murroe-Boher annual newsletter is at present under compilation. Each year there is a list of Births and Baptisms, Marriages and Deaths in the book. The only way of getting a list of each is from church records. We realise that there are more births, marriages and deaths which will not be recorded in this way or that maybe occurred outside of the parish but merit inclusion and we ask you please to send any details of births, marriages and deaths to if you wish to have them included in the annual list.
