Inagh and the Public Works

The Report from the Select Committee on Captain Wynne's Letter of 1847 gives lists and revised lists of people on works schemes. Inagh, along with Kilnamona, is documented. More information on the Public Works Scheme can be found on the Kilnamona Public Works Page.

Fr. Thomas Quinn was asked to prepare a list of the needy in Inagh, so they could be given employment on the public works. He delegated this task to people in the parish he considered trustworthy as he could not go through every townland. Col. Synge brought up the case of John Devitt, who had nine in his family and who possessed no stock and land, being refused employment. Fr. Quinn was criticised by Captain Wynne at this point, as a man called Leahy, a relation of the well off Neylon family, was receiving relief.

The document is useful from a genealogical viewpoint as it gives lists of names of people from Inagh and Kilnamona. I have transcribed each name exactly as it was originally printed. Alternative spellings of names may be guessed at. The Revised List for Kilnamona is also available.
