Reports and Returns Relating to Evictions
in the Kilrush Union (1847-1849)

Extract of a Report from the Vice-Guardians - January 22, 1849

"Evictions and throwing down houses continue to be carried on to large extents, and the quarter sessions now going on, shows that a large number of ejectments are in process; and we know that within a fortnight upwards of 800 beings have been evicted from their homes. We cannot, therefore, make any calculation that may come near the amount, but are of opinion that at least 2000 persons will be added in some parts of the intermediate season, and that about the same number will be off the list in the months of April to June; they increase from that to October."
