Irish school children from the 18th century

Here's a great site - Irish Children in 18th Century Schools and Institutions, located at It's a project from the Digital Humanities Observatory at University College Cork, drawing material from a range of sources and making them available in a searchable database through the site. Predominantly concerned with the Republic of Ireland, the north gets a look in with some coverage for Belfast as well.

Lots to get stuck into, have fun!

My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My Scottish land and church records ebooks are available at, whilst my next Pharos Scottish course, Scottish Research Online, starts Sep 4th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!
