“By reconstructing these records, which collectively comprise millions of historical and genealogical facts, we have the potential to transform the evidence base on which Irish history is written. Because the archival collections date from such an early period of history, the reconstruction effort will allow anyone with an interest in researching their families or localities to engage in deep history, reaching back almost half a millennium earlier than most readily available genealogical resources.”

In Committee on Finance. - Vote No. 32—Office of the Minister for Justice.

 

Wednesday, 20 April 1932

Mr. Lemass: Information on Seán F. Lemass Zoom on Seán F. Lemass This Party stands for the same principles as were enunciated in 1916. The first of these is majority rule, the right of the representatives elected by the people of the country to [218] make laws binding on these people without fear, favour, rent or render, or permission from any other authority on earth. That is what we are standing for. We are going to see that majority rule will operate, and that it will be effective majority rule; in other words, that it will be possible to ascertain exactly what the will of the majority is by giving them every opportunity of expressing it. We have had Deputy Fitzgerald asking do we contemplate some possibility at some time in the future of somebody advocating communism? Of course, we contemplate that. It is open to people to advocate communism, and if they can get a sufficient number of people to elect them in support of a communistic doctrine, to come in here and advocate it. It is no crime to advocate any political policy, and we are not going to make it a crime. We are going to try and make the Dáil representative of every section of opinion in the country. It is by doing that that we can achieve more to secure stability and ordered progress than the late Government did by seventeen Coercion Acts during their ten years in office. Deputy Hogan has expressed the hope that this peace will last. I can assure him that he will get his hope.

Mr. J. Flynn: Information on John Flynn Zoom on John Flynn I have written to the Minister for Justice in connection with the proposed new barracks. Perhaps there has been some misunderstanding on the part of Deputy Corry and myself, but certain advertisements were issued and we took it for granted that new barracks were to be erected in Kerry. Therefore, I did communicate with the Minister for Justice on the question. I understand now that no such scheme will be carried through. There was an item in last year's estimate of £1,500 for each of at least four barracks in Kerry. The Minister at the moment has intimated to me that it will not be discussed now but later. I would like to impress upon him that if at all possible the erection of these barracks in Kerry or in any other county should be deferred, and that the money proposed for them would be far more remuneratively spent by providing employment in other ways than in the erection of barracks or the repair of barracks either.

 

 

 

[227] Opposition Deputies have referred to peace and prosperity. I would point out one real menace to peace in rural portions of the Co. Kerry. Certain members of the detective forces have done terrible things in their time. They have gone so far as to torture innocent men from political motives, and these forces are still retained in Kerry in certain rural districts. I would ask the Minister at least, pending a revision or disbandment of these forces, to remove them from the districts in which they did desperate things against certain sections of the people. I would point out very strongly that it would be a real basis of peace if such elements were removed or if there was an intimation that in the very near future the Minister could accomplish that.

Bullied as a child because he was small for his age, Gino Bartali identified with the underdog. He was first exposed to the growing evil of Fascism through his father, Torello, who was associated with an anti-Fascist labour movement that was trying to gain basic rights for workers who did backbreaking work for minimal pay. When one of that movement’s leaders was murdered by the Fascists, it was a sign that they wouldn’t tolerate opposition.

Anarchy at Listowel Heritage in Tourism Conference, April 2012

The Heritage in Tourism conference in Listowel on 21 April demonstrated yet again the complete anarchy that currently exists in the related fields.

Glossy publications are everywhere – no doubt helped by Wikipedia – and they are supposed to distract and sidetrack the tourist. They cost a mint to produce, and the czars of tourism and heritage and grant organizations support them all with the taxpayers money. And all this is expected to bring tourists to the region and keep them there. It is all a disaster for those of us who address some kind of core curriculum.

And the biggest scandal is that the czars making the decisions are MBA qualified, who don’t know their core curriculum to start with and have the fashionable prejudice of the secular Left against what truly distinguishes Kerry, the Christian centuries. So they favour instead geology, archaeology, botany and lichens and molluscs, producing glossy brochures designed to send folk into bogs or up mountains or wade up to their knees in brine.

There were lots of pious aspirations, but they ignored the guiding imperative, which is paper and procedures and all the roadblocks put in place by officials to justify their fat-cat jobs; the real genius of officialdom, including the offices of the czars, is to foil initiative and play at being ceos. Some of the participants tried to wring blood from a stone. Example: the B&Bs of Dingle – those outside the town – are making no money; what can we do? nothing, it’s all down to the drink driving laws.

Even if you solved the problem of heritage illiteracy among the heritage elite, or demoted some of them to subsidiary positions where they belong, there would still be the problem of clutter. The clutter arises from grants i.e. free money; politicians and community groups become involved because of grants, and the effect of this is that the fat-cat ceos get the opportunity to play God by turning applications into a game of management. I can tell you for one that none of them ever phones a writer, or hangs out with anybody but a politician or the leader of a community group.

 

 

The Lock Estate

by Kay O' Leary

 

The Lock Estate

A Growing Debt

The Lock(e) Estate which was bought by the Hurlys in 1857 (and included Lyreacrompane) had financial problems dating back many years. On the 21st of April 1825 part of the lands of Fenit (Within) were mortgaged by William Lock Snr of Norbury Park in Surrey and William Lock Jnr to secure repayment to a George Watson Smith for thesum of £2,000 and interest.

On the 28th of February 1827 a similar sum plus interest was secured. On the 15th of January, 1828 £1,500 was repaid by William Lock Jnr to George Smith. On the same date the Locks secured a £9,500 loan from Smith. Sixteen days later the agreement was amended to include Elizabeth Catherine Locke, wife of William Snr and Frederica Augusta Lock, his mother. At this stage the Locks owed £12,000 to William Smith. Provision of £700 yearly was made for Elizabeth Catherine Lock if she should survive her husband and the security was Fenit House and Estate.

In December 1829, William Lock Jnr married Selina …… and he died on the 15th of September 1832 leaving a daughter, Amelia Selina Lock and his wife Selina. One wonders what he was up to when he passed away because exactly nine months later!!! Selene gave birth to a daughter, Augusta Selina Elizabeth Lock (who subsequently became the Duchess De St Arpino). William Lock’s first daughter, Amelia, died January 1834 aged two.

William Lock Snr (landlord of lands including Lyreacrompane) died on the 15th December, 1847, at Lee in the County of Kent, his wife, Elizabeth Catherine, having died in May of the previous year. The will of William Lock Snr. referred to his estates in Kerry and made a specific provision of £20 yearly for their life to Mary Jaccaz then residing in Paris and who had been in his service for many years and the same to Louisa M…. who was then in his service. It gave a legacy of £500 apiece to his granddaughters, Frederica Elizabeth Blake and Elizabeth Blake.

The main beneficiary was his daughter whom he referred to as Elizabeth Lady Wallscourt and he had appointed his brother, Rev George Lock and three others as executors. In a codicil dated the first of September 1847. William Lock did direct that “all such household goods and furniture, linen, china, jewels, paintings, pictures, sculpture and books” should go to his daughter, Elizabeth.

In October 1849, at the age of 16, Augusta Selina Elizabeth Lock (referred to in the above will) married the Right Honourable Ernest Fitzroy Neville Fane (commonly called Lord Burghersh). Ernest (probably an old man when he married the teenage Augusta) died on 22nd of January 1857 leaving Augusta Selena a widow with no issue.

Augusta Selena was now known as Lady Burghersh and in Griffiths Valuations of 1852 she is listed as the landlord of almost 2,000 acres of land in the Lyreacrompane district.

It would appear that the Locks administrated their estates as absentee Landlords.

Lyreacrompane Tenants in the Lock Estate 1820s.

A record of the Tithes Aplotments for 1820s shows the following were tenants in the Lyeracrompane area at that time. The Tithes were a Church of Ireland charge on tenants based on the amount of land they held and were a source of major discontent for the Catholic peasantry. Later in the century the Tithes were reduced to 25% and transferred as a charge on to the Landlord. However, many landlords passed on this extra cost to the tenancy by way of rent increases. This added to the general discontent of the time. In the 1880s there were about 20 evictions in Lyreacrompane.

Lyreacrompane

Darby Dillane, Thomas Connor, Daniel Connor, Patrick Connell, W O.Halloran.

These tenants held a total of 443 acres, 1 rood and 16 perches. The tithes charge on these tenants totalled £4 6s 3d. Also mentioned as being in Lyreacrompane at that time were Patrick Dillane and Owen (?) Connell.

Carrigcannon

John O’Halloran, John Heffernan, John Costello, Robert Stack

These Tenants held a total of 719 acres and the Tithes charge was £3 17s 6d.

Clahaneagleragh

Michael Enright, Pat Buckley, John Walsh

Those tenants held a total of 252 acres, 2 roods and 31 perches.

Glenalema

Maurice McElligott, Thomas McElligott.

These tenants held a total of 114 acres.

Lock Estate Tenants in 1852

According to Griffiths Valuation 1852 the tenants in the Lyreacrompane area at the time of the sale of the Lock Estate to the Hurlys were all were tenants of Lady Burghersh.

Lyreacrompane

Patrick and Edmond Dillane (381 acres), Thomas and Mathias Connor and Edmund Molyneaux (417 acres), Eugene and Patrick Connell & William Kirby (159 acres). The following were sub-tenants of Patrick Dillane; Michael Buckley, Mary Stack and Richard Gregory. John Quill was a sub tenant of Thomas Connor, Mathias Connor & Edmund Molyneaux.

Carrigcannon

Thomas Halloran (716 acres), Patrick Stack (223 acres). Anne Connell and John Sheehy were sub- tenants of Tom Halloran and Michael Doran was a sub-tenant of Patrick Stack.

Glashananoon

Timothy Cronin and Maurice Enright (138 acres), Michael Shanahan (121 acres). Edward Enright was a sub-tenant of Tim Cronin and Maurice Enright.

Gortaclohane

Mathew Kennelly, Mary Dillane, Jer Dillane, Patrick Dillane Snr (116 acres), Jer, James and John Gallivan (179 acres), Patrick and Maurice Shanahan and Maurice and Patrick Kelly (100 acres), John and Thomas Dillane (185 acres total) Thomas Cahill, Catherine Dillane and Patrick Dillane Jnr were sub-tenants of Matt Kennelly and Margaret Dillane was a sub-tenant of John and Thomas Dillane. (The record shows that there was a graveyard in Gortaclohane in 1852 measuring 33 perches).

Knocknaglough

Thomas and Michael Quill (193 acre sub-tenant of Thomas Connor)

John Hurly, of Fenit House, bought the Locke Estate in 1857.

New Hibernia Review 10.1 (2006) 139-146 _________________________________________________________________ [Access article in PDF] Edward F. Barrett (1869-1936), Abbey Playwright Sheila Phelan National University Of Ireland, Galway The extraordinary creative activity of Dublin's Abbey Theatre in the opening decades of the last century was the work not only of notable figures of literary and theatrical stature but, also of lesser figures who contributed in minor ways as their lives intersected for perhaps a year or two with the visionary project of Yeats and Lady Gregory. Edward F. Barrett, an accountant, wrote plays in his spare time, one of which was produced at the Abbey Theatre in 1918. His story is essentially that of an amateur who, in different circumstance, may have flourished as a playwright. Barrett was born on St. Valentine's Day, 1869. His mother was a Fitzmaurice from Listowel and his father was a publican. When Edward was a young boy, his father sold his pub and moved the family out to Newtown Sandes, a small village in the townland of Coolleen in North Kerry. As he grew up Barrett was interested in books and literature. After leaving school he trained as an accountant. He also taught for a time at St. Michael's College in Listowel. Dublin was an attractive prospect for an ambitious young man, and he soon obtained a position as business manager with Messrs. Smith and Sons, Silversmiths, of Wicklow Street. Although his move to Dublin was permanent, Barrett retained strong ties to Kerry and in 1898, at the age of twenty-nine, he married Nora Hunt, whose family farm at Knockanure was also in the townland of Coolleen. It was, by all accounts, a happy marriage. Nora and Eddie had one daughter, Maura, born in Dublin on October 15, 1906. Eddie Barrett grew up in North Kerry during a time of considerable political and social agitation. Farmers there suffered much...

To the honorable the knights Cittizens & Burgesses in the Comons house of Parliament assembled in the kingdome of England

The severall vndernamed dispoiled & distressed Ladyes & Gentlewomen now resideing within the Citty of Dublin, & others in the kingdome of Ireland/

In humble manner represent theire miserable Condition

Sheweing, that of your suppliants some have by gods great mercy & goodnes with the great hazard of their Lives & the vtter Losse of theire whole estates, escaped the fury of the Irish rebells, whose vnparalled cruelty exercised on such as fell within theire power doth sufficiently appeare

Some of them although resident in & about the Citty of Dublin yett had their estates lying further off in the countrie possessed by the rebells

The whole Livelyhood also of others consisting in certaine somes of money being the legacies Left vnto them by theire deceased parents, all being either in the hands of such as now are in actuall rebellion or of such others as were by the rebells slaine or wholly stripped out of all, and therefore disenabled to answere the necessityes of your suppliants

By all which your peticioners are destitute of all meanes of releife and now readie to perish, some of them being reduced to such extremities that the selling away of theire ordinary attire, & necessary wearing apparell at great vndervalues is the greatest part of their present supply./.

And whereas of your peticioners many are of honorable condition & others of the better ranke of gentlewomen, whereby they are vncapeable of the ordinary provision already by your charitable & pious care designed for the other poore of the inferiour sort, and therein your suppliants Left destitute, & Laid open to apparant ruine if not taken into your consideration

May it therefore please your honors among others your Acts of charity to comiserate the most distressed condition of your peticioners in thinking on such wayes & meanes for theire present sustenance & subsistence as in your wisdomes shalbee thought fitting./

That by adding hereof to your other great workes of pietie, you may also add vnto your List & oblige to bee in the nomber of your daily votaryes, vs whose names are here subscribed

Reason to pay poor

August. 15. 1642

Reasons why the Committee for contribucion to the distressed Subiects of Ireland doe thinke fitt to order that the summes of money contained in the proposicions presented by Doctor Jones should be ordered to be payd unto them according to the sayd proposicions, though there be not present money to satisfye the same.

1.That there be willbe forthwith a great confluence of poore Ministers & other poore out of Ireland, that will come ouer; which the ordering of this money to be payd then when it cometh in, though it be not presently payd the , will prevent; as the sayd Doctor Jones is certainly informed from the Master of the Rolles there, Ser Sergeant Maior Riues, Sergeant Maior to the Lo: Lambert & o t from the Commissioners for the Ministers & divers other persons of good credit; as appeareth by their seuerall lettres.

2.In that confluence of Irish into the this Kingdome, there willbe an inevitable danger of their bringing ouer the infection of the plague pestilent fever with them, as hath bene allready done in some parts of Devon.

3.When this money is so ordered to be disposed of, it will stopp the ordering of it to be disposed any other way;

4.When it is once knowen in Ireland, that this money will is so ordered here vpon that report, the poore Ministers & other poore will there get releife vpon by loanes & advancement vpon that hope in confidence of repayment from hence vpon that order.

5.If those Ministers for want of this order should come out of Ireland, there would be great want of their service there, for both for their preaching of the Gospell generally throughout the whole Kingdome, & particularly to the armye.

6. That by reason of their extreme povertie both in clothes & all manner of sustenance, they are willbe in danger & allready threatned to be forthwith turned out of their dwellings & lodgings; whereas the n notice of such an order, would giue them credit, till money come.
