Digitised Workhouse Records

  • The admission and discharge registers of the Rathdrum and Shillelagh workhouses date from famine times. and some of the headings under which information was recorded include:

    Number
    Name of pauper
    Single/Married/Widow/er
    Child of
    Trade/Calling
    Disabled and nature of disability
    Observations on condition upon admission
    Date admitted or when born in the workhouse
    Date of death or discharge
    These are perhaps our most poignant records, illustrating the suffering of the poor in the lists of names of those admitted to this institution, not only in famine times but throughout the 19th and early 20th century.

    Digitised collection:

    Rathdrum Workhouse, 1842-1914
