Sligo Workhouse Admission and Discharge Registers 1848-1859

These handwritten registers are from the Sligo Union workhouse, one of three workhouses in County Sligo. Thousands of people were admitted to the workhouse, usually with family members. The workhouses are a looming presence in Irish cultural memory. They were often places of despair. The names of over 3,000 children can be found. The records include a person’s name, age, condition upon entering the workhouse and when they were discharged or died.
