Great response to new website, 'Catholic Parish Registers at the NLI'

The website, 'Catholic Parish Registers at the NLI', was launched at a special event in the library on 8 July, by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, TD and Heather Humphreys, TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

There has been an exceptionally high volume of traffic to the website since its launch, with 185,053 unique users in the first week the site was available.  Users were from 156 different countries worldwide. The user figures for the top countries are; Ireland (53.09%), United States (21.27%), United Kingdom (14.36%), Australia (4.69%), Canada (2.78%) and New Zealand (0.88%), with smaller figures from 150 other countries.

This demonstrates the huge interest in the website from people in Ireland and the Irish diaspora around the world.
