County Focus: Laois

County Laois is historically known as Queen’s County, the county’s name changing in 1922.  Portarlington in the county was a Huguenot settlement.  You can find out more about the French refugees in Portarlington in the Registers of the French Church of Portarlington 1694-1816.

If you’re interested in the Huguenots in Ireland more generally, you might also want to read Smiles’ The Huguenots, their settlements, churches and industries in England and Ireland, Gimlette’s The History of the Huguenot Settlers in Ireland, or one of our other Huguenot titles.

If you’re interested in church history, but not descended from Huguenots, then you might find Carrigan’s History of the Diocese of Ossory is right for you.  The religious history of the parishes in counties Laois and Kilkenny is recorded, as well as extensive extracts and transcripts of original manuscript material, much of which was lost in the destruction of the PRO in 1922.

Laois is also covered by the Leinster sections of a number or directories, namely Slater’s and Pigot’s for 1824, 1846, 1870, 1881 and 1894.
