Findmypast announces indexed Irish Catholic records coming

RootsTech, just ended, was the occasion for Findmypast to announce the imminent release of 10 million Irish Catholic parish records.
The March release will cover over 200 years of history, from 1671-1900, over 1,000 parishes transcribed from 3,500 baptism and marriage registers from the National Library of Ireland (NLI).
This is a transcript for images placed online my the NLI last July.
As mentioned in my post at that time the quality of the originals leaves much to be desired. There are missing and illegible pages so even though they are Catholic records don't expect miracles.
