Irish Catholic registers to be digitised

The National Library of Ireland has reopened itself to the possibility of digitising its Roman Catholic parish register holdings, albeit through a method that may now involve a payment system to access. Today's Irish Times is reporting that the institution is seeking a partner to realise the project, with the possibility that this may be a commercial firm such as Brightsolid or Ancestry.
