1911 Census Return Forms for Millstreet – online

An example of a local Census Return Form from 1911
The 1911 Census Return for the O’Riordan family who lived at the corner of Mill Lane and Main Street, Millstreet

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:

Caherbarnagh, Coomlogane, Drishane, Kilcorney, CrinalooRathcool,
Keale, Cullen, Skagh (Derinagree), Knocknagree, Rosnalee

note: the Derragh DED which was in the 1901 census is now gone and is part of the Cullen DED in 1911.

Court not returning to Carnegie Hall

The newly revamped Carnegie Hall
The newly revamped Carnegie Hall

In a sign of the world we live in, it seems that the court services have no plans to return to the newly refurbished Carnegie Hall where it has sat for the last 100 years. It had planned to return after refurbishment work which continued over the last year was complete, but it now seems that that is not the case, as they blamed the “current economic climate”. Unfortunately that seems to be excuse that most are using these days, because it is too easy to get away with.
