In three large pdf files, Cashel Workhouse's Indoor Relief Registers from December 1847 to July 1848 can now be downloaded free of charge. As the Local Studies team points out, there were 4,480 individuals admitted to the Workhouse in those seven months – more than the 2016 population of the town.

The Indoor Relief registers join a separate Deaths Registers covering the years 1848, 1849 and 1850.

Also included in the digital Workhouse Records collection are registers for Thurles and Roscrea Workhouses.
