Subscribers to Clare Papal Army, 1860

In 1860 over 1200 volunteers from Ireland travelled to Italy to fight for the Papal States in the Papal Wars. An appeal was made throughout Ireland for funds to support the volunteers. Twenty three Catholic parishes from Clare published lists of subscribers in newspapers of the day. Members of Clare Roots Society have undertaken to transcribe the names of these subscribers, resulting in this database of over 4000 names. Clare County Library is grateful to Clare Roots Society for donating this material.
