Ennistymon Union Minute Books 1839 - 1850


I wish to congratulate The North Clare Historical Society on its foresight and enterprise in initiating the research into the records of the Poor Law Union of Ennistymon, and to thank the Society's Chairman and Liaison Officer, Mr. William Callinan, for all his help.

I wish to acknowledge Donal Griffin, External Training Manager, Mid-West Region, FÁS; Bill McInerney, our FÁS Advisor; Noel Crowley, Clare County Librarian; and Anthony Edwards of Ennistymon Library.

I would like to thank Veritas, and particularly Fr. Martin Tierney, without whom the publication would not have been possible in this format.

My thanks to Clare County Council for the resources they so generously placed at our disposal, with special thanks to the Ennistymon Library and Council staff, Tessie Hill, Fursa Haran, Brendan Murphy, Marie Hegarty and Anne MacCaw for their patience throughout.

This book is a testament to the dedication and enthusiasm of each of the FÁS trainees, who were a joy to work with:
Mary Brosnan, Bridget Burke, Mary B. Clifford, Rita Doyle, Joseph Garrihy, Noreen Garrihy, Mary Hartigan, Marie Hegarty, Fintan McMahon, Eileen McNamara, Elizabeth Murphy, Hanoria O'Loughlin, Sheena Quinn, Mary Walsh and particularly Gerard Hartigan and Brian Toland.

Maureen Comber,
Project Supervisor.
