Dunboyne News Cuttings 1824-1878

Sources for the study of nineteenth century Clare

Compiled by the Honourable Theobald Fitz-Walter Butler, Lord Dunboyne.

“Newspaper scraps relating to the County of Clare.”

Earliest entry:
Dublin Evening Post, 3 January 1824

Last entry:
The Evening Mail, 31 December 1878

224 microfiche pages of seven panels x seven columns each, with 49 pages per microfiche, the entirety running to almost 11,000 pages.

These newspaper extracts on County Clare from 1824 to 1878 cover a wide range of activity and chronology in the county. Coverage increases after the Famine, and the years from the 1860s are more detailed and comprehensive with the increasing role of State agencies in administering local government, the poor law, education, policing and prisons, the administration of justice and public health. Church matters are given extensive coverage as are the railways and the various borough and parliamentary elections. The annual listings of births, marriages and deaths are useful sources for those whose names appeared in the contemporary newspapers.
