Cloncha parish registers Co Donegal baptisms 1669-1783

According to the PRO Ireland the date of the earliest Parish register for the parish of Cloncha in Donegal, as given in the Report of the Deputy-Keeper of the Public records is 1824.

The following register(s) for Cloncha Church of Ireland were destroyed in the fire of 1922 namely baptisms 1825-1876, marriages 1823-1844 and burials 1829-1877.

There was, however, an earlier register and transcripts were made of baptisms 1669-1783 by Dr Robert S Young that were published in Volume 5 of the Journal for the Association of the memorials of the Dead, Ireland (1903).

These appear to have been selected entries transcribed by Dr Young but are valuable nonetheless:
