Limerick Diocesan Priests

c. mid 1830's

extracted by

Paul Keroack


British Parliamentary Papers, a page of which I photocopied when it was being microfilmed some years ago. Not knowing that I was going to share it in the future, I neglected to note date, vol. #, etc., but it was about mid 1830s, in a series of reports on the state of education in Ireland.
At the head of the page (61) is: Commission of Public Instruction, Ireland,
Appendix No. [2]. Roman Catholic Bishop's return of the Roman Catholic
clergy, Roman Catholic Province of Cashel - Roman Catholic Diocese of Limerick.

The library catalog title for the series of volumes is: 

Great Britain.  Parliament. House of Commons. Parliamentary Papers. Education 

and I obtained it from Milbank Memorial Library, Teachers College, Columbia
