Parliamentary Papers

The British Government commissioned papers relating to proceedings for the relief of distress and to show the state of the Unions and Workhouses in Ireland from 1845 to 1853. All references to the famine in Clare have been transcribed from these papers, typed into the computer and published on the library webiste as "Reports and Returns Relating to Evictions in the Kilrush Union 1849: Presented to both houses of Parliament by Command of her Majesty, London" . The trainees involved in this project were Karen Liddane, Mary Considine, Mary McNamara, Noelle Longe and Fiona Reddan.
