This guide introduces researchers to the archives of the Valuation Office, first set up under an Act of 1826 with the purpose of establishing a systematic valuation of property for taxation purposes. The Valuation Office was one of the great administrative enterprises of 19th-century Ireland and, with modifications, it carries out the same functions almost 200 years later. This is an invaluable source of information about properties, providing a continuous record of the names of owners and tenants, as well as data on the property. This guide provides an overview of the archives of the Valuation Office, which are held between the Valuation Office and the National Archives.

In the history of Norman monasteries founded in Ireland, the Benedictine priory of Fore stands apart. While many foundations were independent entities and others were cells or priories of English foundations, Fore was a cell of the French monastery of St. Taurin , Evreux, in Normandy. As such, it was one of only two alien priories in Ireland in medieval times - the other was in Ards, Co. Down. While the kings of England were still dukes of Normandy, the priory was considered their own property. As conflict between England and France grew, the priory came to be seen as alien property and, by the 14th century, was considered 'French,' resulting in its seizure by the English crown. By the early 15th century, the priory had become the property of the local gentry of the region. This books charts the rise and fall of the priory and the surrounding area of Fore in the medieval period. All history is local and yet history is not all local. The story of the priory at Fore is not just the story of what happened locally, but also of how far distant events, such as the Great Western Schism and the Hundred Years War, impinged into the very recesses of medieval Ireland.

The articles presented in this edited book illustrate the broad diversity of Internet-based studies in an Irish context, as well as the interdisciplinary which distinguishes much of its outputs. From digital humanities in the strictest sense - through the creation and use of digital objects and resources to a close examination of digital texts, from ethical issues to societal issues - through the lenses of gender or nationality, from empirical research to practitioners reports, the chapters are a snapshot of Internet research in Ireland. The contributors to this book come from many third-level institutions on the island, thus illustrating a geographical space linked to digital spaces.

The Irish landscape is dotted with thousands of medieval buildings, most of them in ruins. They are an invaluable resource, individually and collectively, for making sense of medieval Ireland and its people, provided one knows how to read the evidence of their architecture. This book helps the reader make full use of that evidence. It presents a comprehensive and fully referenced account of the cultures of medieval architectural endeavor in Ireland, and it describes and explains in detail the types of medieval building that survive. The book is replete with photographs, plans, and elevation drawings.

This work will be essential reading for social and political historians of nineteenth-century Ireland. It is the first academic study to explore the meanings of poverty, destitution and respectability in post-famine Ireland through the institution of the poor law, and is an original in content and interpretation. Previous works have focussed either on the relief system or on political developments. This book analyses poor law administration from a social and a political perspective. There is currently renewed interest in the English poor law of 1834, on which the Irish poor law was modelled. This book will provide historians of poverty and welfare, with an important comparative dimension
