Tipperary Studies adds Borrisokane workhouse registers

Tipperary Studies, the local history department of Tipperary Libraries, has new additions to its digital archives: Admission registers for Borrisokane Workhouse.

They date from 1894 to 1923.

One of the striking differences in admissions from this period compared with those from earlier decades is the number of tradesmen using the workhouse for overnight stays while travelling for work.

The registers are now available to view/download in pdf format free of charge in the Tipperary Studies' Digital Archive collection.
