Just because these obits were in the Limerick Chronicle does not mean that all the people mentioned in them were only from Co. Limerick. Many were, but many are there for other reasons. Perhaps someone thought it fitting to pay for an ad in the Chronicle because there were family and/or business ties. There is a search box on the site, and when you type in the names of other counties, the results can be quite rewarding.

PS. This site represents a considerable amount of work, and those responsible deserve to be commended. Where I know more about the individuals, I have included either other information or else a link to my site where their family connections are shown. In time, I will update my own site with all these new specifics.

She was a child of most engaging disposition and manners.

James Bennett, Esq. corner, held an inquest yesterday. The Rev. James Quinn, PP of St. Johns, who was the first person to observe the child in the water, deposed that he was walking on the canal between four and five o'clock on Sunday evening; he looked up towards the second lock, and saw the child in the water; he was a distance from her that time, but heard her cry out, as he believes “Mary;” he immediately ran to the spot, and a man who could not swim went out to savor, but did not succeed; a person coming down the bank at the time had a dog, which jumped into the water; the little girl was than floating above the water, but the dog having put his paws on her, she immediately sunk, and was not raised in the bottom for half an hour afterwards. He did not see anyone near the place when he first observed the child in the water.

Dr. Thwaites, was called on to attend the child in Barrington's hospital, stated that he applied the usual remedies to restore animation but in vain, as life was extinct.

Jackson, Constable (557 Kb), Limerick Chronicle 23rd August 1892.


A great deal of regret has been evoked amongst the city R.I.C. force and many civilian friends of the death of mounted Constable Jackson who has been stationed in Limerick for many years. He had been under medical treatment for some weeks and seemed to be recovering, but last week a relapse set in, and he was conveyed to the County Infirmary, where death took place on Saturday night. Constable Jackson was a very courteous and intelligent official, and a general favorite with all his colleagues and what, perhaps, lends an additional air of sadness to his premature demise is the fact that the order for his promotion came down on the day of his death. He had some 20 years service in the force, a large portion of which as already stated, has been spent in Limerick. The remains were interred yesterday at St. Munchin’s Church, and the funeral was attended about by about 80 men of the Constabulary, walking two deep. They were under command of District Inspector Purdon, and Head Constables M’Brin and Phelan. Several of the general public were also present. The Rev. J.W. Chapman oficiated.
