Another example from Galway: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Galway/Templetogher/Cartron_West/1382466/ Dan Reilly, a male school boy, was described by his grandparents as their "niece". In 1911, the form was clearly poorly edited before it was collected, so that the 48-yea...

Another example: John Clancy was described as his maternal grandmother Bridget Cunningham's nephew in 1911 at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Killard/Killard/365208/ They were in separate households in the same townland in 1901: John: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/page...

The general policy was to microfilm only pre-1880 church records. So for an 1886 baptism in most Clare parishes, you will have to either consult the original register in the parish or pay Clare Heritage & Genealogy Centre a large sum for whatever extract it made when allowed to borrow the origin...

Here's another example from County Mayo: Anne McCann was described as a niece in her grandmother's household in 1901: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Mayo/Swineford/Lagcurragh/1601152/ Only her uncle is left in the household in 1911: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/...

An unusual example from Mayo, where the granddaughters are described as "Niece" but their brother as "Grand Son":

Thanks, Sharon. Triocha (literally "thirties") and tuatha (literally "lands") were old administrative divisions, long pre-dating the division of Ireland into counties. There is an explanation at http://www.forgottenbooks.com/readbook_text/The_Gaelic_State_in_the_Past_Future_or_th...

I was surprised to learn recently of this work and of its distinguished author, a native of the townland of Lacken in Kilmihil parish: Author Ó hÓgain, Séan. Title Conntae an Chláir a triocha agus a tuatha. Imprint Baile Átha Cliath : Oifig an tSoláthair, (1938). The book is widely available in the ...

It was mentioned by Philip Fogarty of NUIG in his lecture to Kilrush & District Historical Society on Tuesday 29 September 2015 that a special census of the Gaeltacht was taken in August 1925. Many genealogists seem to be unaware of this potential source. The best details of this census that I c...

Caherfeenick is in Doonbeg DED even though it is in a different parish. In fact, one cannot get from one end of Doonbeg/Killard parish to the other without either going through Caherfeenick or wading across the Scivileen River! The little that I have on the Brews of Doonmore is at http://pwaldron.in...

Perhaps it is more than coincidence that Newtown House in Doonbeg appears to have fallen into ruin at about the time that Newtown House in Newtown East was built or named! There is a similar situation in Kilrush - when the Vandeleurs' Kilrush House burned in the 1890s, the Glynns claimed the name fo...
