This is not something I would normally do, repost almost a whole newsletter, however I thought this would be of interest to quite a number of my readers.
Philippa doesn't only write about the The Great Parchment Book Project, rather she has lots of items of interest to all researching in Ireland.

CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY AND CLARE LIBRARY PRESENT
PAPAL ARMY SUBSCRIPTION LISTS PART II
In a recent post, I told of the project involving Clare Roots Society and Clare Library in compiling and transcribing the lists of those who paid subscriptions to support the Papal Army..
you can read that initial post here
This article from the Clare Champion will give you more detail.
Over time, I will post various other articles to do with the Papal Army that portray the opinions of others around the world. They will also enlighten you as to the futility of what was happening, despite the dedication of so many.
This project could not have happened without the skilled assistance of so many volunteer transcribers, who offered their services yet again, the moment they were asked.
The subscription list can be found
along with the names of all involved in this project
Thank you all,
your contribution to family history
is very much appreciated.
