The Branch was established in July 1996

The Workhouse in Ireland
Peter Higginbotham gave the Irish Branch Conference a talk on Saturday 12th October 2013. He did not have a handout but he has produced some books that he sells illustrating the Workhouse.

If you look at his own website on the Workhouse at www.workhouses.org you can get a feel of how some of your ancestors may possibly have lived whilst resident in them.

On the Home Page, go down the column on the left-hand side, click on Workhouse Locations and then select Irish Poor Law Unions. At this point, you can click on Irish Workhouse History or you can further select a county of Ireland and read about them.

This website is good for Great Britain covering all of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Ireland didn't become partitioned until 1921/2 so the whole of Ireland is covered.
