Carlow IGP completes transcription of estate papers

The Rentals and Rent Accounts for the Bunbury-Rathdonnell estate at Lisnavagh, Rathvilly, County Carlow, have been transcribed and made available free on the Carlow Ireland Genealogy Projects website.

Dating from the late 18th century to the 19th century, the accounts and accompanying documents (receipts and some correspondence) include places such as Rathmore, Tobinstown, Ballyoliver, Phrumplestown, The Moat and Rathvilly.

The transcriptions are the work of Treacy Breen & Bob Joyce, who deserve a big round of applause; this is a mighty extensive piece of work, well executed.
