More petty session records from FMP Ireland

FindmyPast Ireland (www.findmypast.ie) has released a further tranche of 2 million records from its Irish Petty Session records collection. This entry contains the additional records for Limerick, Louth, Mayo, Monaghan, Tipperary, or Wexford.

With this release I've made a few discoveries on my wife's family, including several records of drunkenness in Carrick-on-Suir and one instance in 1899 of her great grandfather being prosecuted for letting a dog out of his house unmuzzled! The Carrick records are available only for the period from 1897-1901 just now, so not sure if more are forthcoming - half of me hopes so, the other half thinks if I've found so many hits in just a four year gap, God only knows what is still to come!

A great collection - further details of the latest releases are at www.findmypast.ie/content/news-even-more-petty-sessions-records
