Welcome to Leinster - Ireland East

Leinster is one of the Provinces of Ireland. It lies in the east of Ireland and comprises the counties of Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wexford and Wicklow. The population of Leinster is 2,501,208 according to the 2006 census, making it the most populous province in the country. The traditional flag of Leinster features a golden harp on a green background.

This page is being used at the moment ONLY for posting messages on the Leinster Message Board for people who know that there ancestors are (or were) based in Leinster, but do not know what county or parish they came from. If you know what county or parish your ancestors came from, please JOIN that parish and post your message on their message board - you'll get a quicker and more informed response that way.

The more information that you have about your ancestors, the better the response you should receive. Try to post as much information as possible:

  • names
  • dates
  • places
  • if they were married (and to whom)
  • children's names
  • descendants' names
  • any thing else you can think of

When your query has gathered enough information for you to decide what county your ancestors came from, we can then more your query to that county's message board (and eventually to the message board of the parish from which your ancestors came).

This will be an exciting journey for (and us).
