Ancestors from Feakle, Co Clare?

An interesting and unusual resource has been added to the ever-growing collection of Clare County Library: Prisoners in Irish Jails from Feakle, 1866-1923.

The data is provided 'on page', and is easy to scan through to look for names. In date order, it lists all prisoners who recorded Feakle as their place of residence, no matter which prison they were held in.

The material, which is free to view here, has been donated to Clare County Library by Tom McDowell.
