B Swanzy's Succession list for the Diocese of Dromore, first published in 1932. In addition, lists are given for the succession of clergy in the Chapters of Down and Dromore Cathedrals as well as clergy from the diocese who served on the Chapters of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin and Saint Anne's Cathedral Belfast. The book also contains a brief history of every parish in the diocese, quoting, as far as possible, dedications, dates of consecration and architect, together with the evolution of the parochial district. There is a contemporary photograph of every church and in many cases, illustrations of previous churches which no longer exist or photographs of nearby ruins of previous churches. It will be an indispensable reference volume to ecclesiastical historians, genealogists and students of architectural history, as well as to anyone contemplating writing a parish history.Read more
