I don't have the name or address of the church you need, but I'll tell you
of my experience in getting permission to search records. My husband's
ancestors were from Co. Limerick. I got the email address for the Bishop's
office, wrote a short note, received a quick reply from them, sent by email
the info they needed (just our full name and address), and within 7 days I
received a letter of permission from the Bishop to search any and all
records in Co. Limerick. Don't hesitate to write when you get the address,
they seem to be most willing to help.
