Recently I became aware that the 1911 Census has been published online at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie. So if you would like to find who was in your house the night of that census, or if you would like to trace your ancestors then this is an interesting place to look. Personally, I have found my own four grandparents and my 7 great grandparents that were still alive then, and some more interesting facts too.
In this census, Millstreet Town is not a district, but is split into two separate DEDs (District Electoral Divisions): Coomlogane and Drishane from the days of the great houses in town. The full list of local DED’s are:
note: the Derragh DED which was in the 1901 census is now gone and is part of the Cullen DED in 1911.
An interesting thing was the inclusion of Coomlagane Street and Riordans Lane in the Coomlogane District, and Bank Lane in the Drishane district, which I can’t find on old maps. Probably renamed in the meantime, but does anyone know where these started and finished? I suspect Coomlagane Street is now the Main Street and the West End, because it includes census details for the Presentation Sisters and also the Justice family (which I assume was the bakery). I wonder if Bank Lane was down by the side of the Bank of Ireland Building, or if it was where bank place is now, though the AIB was not built until 20 years after this census. It would be good if someone could us out please!
