Directories are a useful source, particularly for those researching gentlemen, merchants or traders.  Shearman’s Directory of Waterford, Kilkenny & the southeast 1839 is one of the earliest local directories published in Ireland and covers Co.

Country-wide directories provide you with great insight into Clare in the early nineteenth century: you can order the Munster section of Pigot’s Commercial Directory of Ireland (1824) or the Munster, Cork & Limerick Sections of Slater’s Commercial Directory of Ireland, 1846.  Other directories include Henry & Coughlan’s General Directory of Cork & Munster, 1867 and the Munster, Cork and Limerick sections of Slater’s Royal National Directory of Ireland 1870, Slater’s Commercial Directory of Ireland, 1881, Slater’s Royal National Directory of Ireland 1894.

The Agricultural Labourer: Ireland: Part 2 (1893) covers Cashel Poor Law Union  and Part 3 (also 1893) covers Roscrea. Both publications cover PLUs in other counties too – see CD descriptions for more information.  They include information on every aspect of labourer’s lives from their wages, diet and accommodation through to their condition, age and size of families, making it a fascinating source.
