List of Workhouses

A visitor to the blog has given this website to provide useful information.

When you go to the site use the navigation menu on the left.  Click “Poor Laws” – “Poor Law Unions” – “Ireland” – “Workhouse Locations” in that order

http://users.ox.ac.uk/~peter/workhouse/

On the left hand side of this page is a full list of Irish Poor Law Unions. Click each union and it will open to a list of workhouses.

Don’t have street addresses though, but full description of each.

This looks like just what you need.
I fully agree with this initiative, very healing all round and will bring tourist dollars to Ireland which really needs them !
I need to see Gort Workhouse.
