Irish Church Directory 1862 now online

The Representative Church Body Library (http://ireland.anglican.org/about/42) in Dublin has released a digitised edition online of the first ever copy of the Irish Church Directory. From its site:

With the onset of the decade of commemorations, it is appropriate that we should mark the 150th anniversary of the first edition of an auspicious Church of Ireland publication – the Irish Church Directory (now the Church of Ireland Directory) published annually since 1862. For September’s Archive of the Month, the RCB Library has digitized all 192 pages of the very first edition, as published by James Charles, proprietor and publisher of Irish Ecclesiastical Gazette – forerunner of the Church of Ireland Gazette from its premises at 61 Middle Abbey Street Dublin, in 1862.

For further details visit http://ireland.anglican.org/about/128 - the directory itself is available at http://issuu.com/churchofireland/docs/directory_1862?mode=embed&layout=http%3A%2F%2Fskin.issuu.com%2Fv%2Flight%2Flayout.xml&showFlipBtn=true
