County Focus

MayoDid your family come from Mayo? We have a range of directories for Connaught, including Mayo, such as Pigot’s and Slater’s in which you could find your ancestor, and, of course, they’re a great resource for discovering occupations! The Agricultural Labourer part 4 contains socio-economic information about labourers in County Mayo at the end of the 19th century, while if your ancestors emigrated from Mayo at the end of that century you might find Mr Tuke’s Fund for Assisted Emigration of use. For western Mayo we also have Memorials of the Dead, which contains over 8,000 names and over 3,000 memorials up to 1901 alongside other useful information such as addresses and maps.
You can view the full range of Mayo titles at the Eneclann shop.

Best wishes, The Eneclann Team
