Ireland's leading genealogical magazine has praised Limerick City Council's decision to become the first local authority to put its burial records online. And 'Ireland's Genealogical Gazette' believes it will help bring more tourists into the city.

Burial records for the City's largest cemetery, Mount Saint Lawrence, dating back to 1855 are accessible on the internet free of charge.
