Bundoran in Donegal is listed as the closest post town for some of the
parishes of Kilmore Diocese in 1836, and while these parishes are not listed
as covering parts of Co. Donegal, the possibility remains that records for
people who may have listed Donegal as their home county may be found in the
parish records of Kilmore ROman Catholic Diocese.

Kilmore Diocese covers the counties of Cavan, Leitrim and Fermanagh.

To see a listing of parishes, priests, closest post town and county that the
closest post town was in during 1836, plus some comparison of parish names
