Roman Catholic Parishes and Churches of the Dioceses of Armagh, Derry and Down & Connor within the County

Note that the parishes of Arboe, Ballinderry, Cookstown, Lissan, Magherafelt and Moneymore are in the Diocese of Armagh. Coleraine and Portrush on the County Antrim side of the Bann are in the Diocese of Down and Connor. The remainder of the parishes in the county are in the Diocese of Derry. Note also that the parishes shown on this map are not the same as the modern day Roman Catholic parishes in the county. As far as I am bale to ascertain, these were the parishes that were in operation during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Because boundaries between parishes could change from time to time you should not regard the boundaries on the on the map as absolutes. Note that more recent twentieth-century churches have not been included.
