For a full list of workhouses of Ireland see book by John O’Connor, The Workhouses of Ireland – the fate of Ireland’s Poor – contains a full list of all workhouses and date built, cost of building etc. Excellent book for anyone with an interest in this area.
I too fully support that these buildings should be national monuments and preserved. Some of them are in quite good condition e.g Dromore West Workhouse, Co. Sligo and Portumna Worhouse, Co. Galway (still in State ownership, I believe)
