—I am researching the history of St Patrick’s Benevolent RegisteredAssociation, which was based in Henry Street, Kilrush, Co. Clare, inthe late 1800s.

Boyle,proprietor of the Kilrush Gazette, who lived at 58 John Street;secretary, John R. MacNamara, who may have been a magistrate fromEnnistymon; medical officer, Dr J.F. Counihan, Francis Street.
