I have done a lot of research in Ireland and had no problems with the
Catholic parishes I requested marriage and baptism records from. The catholic
church is suffering from a shortage of priest and the priest they have in some
cases have to cover two parishes which does not leave them a lot of time. I do
not feel it is a catholic against protestant thing. As for the heritage
centers I have also obtained information from them. The cost of course depends
on how much research has to be done. We need to remember that these are not
volunteer centers.
