KILKENNY CITY & COUNTY
Locations of Irish CONSTABULARY BARRACKS 1849 - 1850

This page contains extracts from the (Griffiths) 'Primary Valuation of Ireland' listing all the constabulary Barracks located in Kilkenny City & County during the years 1849 - 1850.(The Peace Preservation Act of 1814 had established the force in each barony)
The Griffiths Valuation was an extraordinarily thorough undertaking which listed all landowners & tenants, giving a description of each property, its location in each parish, the acreage & the primary valuation in £ S d. This system of (poor Law) valuations  was established to raise funds to help the post-famine destitute in Ireland.
The constabulary information for the county reveals over fifty police barracks. Many of these barracks were private properties leased from local people & this can be seen from the wide variety of 'immedaite Lessors'  (Below)
As this was some eighteen years before the fenian 'Rising, the force is known as the 'constabulary' or Irish Constabulary.
Following the success in dealing with the 1867 Fenian 'Rising the force was granted the title 'Royal Irish Constabulary'  or RIC..
Note: The constabulary information below is  complete for this period , however new barracks were established at various times up to 1922  in  Kilkenny City & county
The file will be updated when new information is aquired

Baronies explained.
A barony is a historical geographical area: normally a subdivision of a county, although some baronies straddle county boundaries as a result of subsequent reorganisation of local government. The names and boundaries of baronies were defined during the Anglo-Norman and later conquest of Ireland, although in many cases, they correspond to earlier Gaelic territories, and some were subsequently subdivided.
Kilkenny City & county is divided into eleven such baronies - Please see map.
