by Luke McInerney

Presented here is a transcription and discussion of a survey of the Barony of Ibrickan in 1615. The document represents the earliest rent-roll detailing the Earl of Thomond’s estate in the barony and lists its chief tenants. The barony consisted of the parishes of Kilmurry Ibrickan, Killard and Kilfarboy. This article was first published in the North Munster Antiquarian Journal vol. 53, 2013, pp. 173-191. Clare County Library is grateful to Luke McInerney for donating this article.
