  1. Thanks for the pictures, Kathleen.

    I need to take a look at the library collection. Coincidentally I have ancestors from both Roscrea and Templemore.

    My ancestor John D’Arcy was in the army in Templemore – probably at the barracks.

    1. I’m not sure but it may be possible through the National Library of Ireland in Dublin.
      They do have what is called a Reprograhic Services section: http://www.nli.ie/en/copying-services.aspx where you can get prints.
      Whether you can get prints of photos in the Lawrence Collection I don’t know. Let me know if you are successful.

  2. Hi never knew there was a barracks in roscrea it may have solved why my GGgrandfather was born there in 1822-3 richard ellis he joined the 57ft at enniscorty as young man served in india was serg in the 21ft in the crimea serg major 3ft. All his sons were soldiers. Maybe his father was a soldier and mother a local girl will do some more research. roscrea looks a nice place now but i wonder what it was like then. we cant find any birth rec or parents. army rec. show place of birth. steve hunt.

    1. Hi Steve,
      Have you looked in Rootsireland for North Tipperary? They say they are adding more records all the time.

  3. Thank you I really enjoyed, reading about your ancestors in Kilmore, Monegeetta hotel as I lived there, my relatives owned the Duck holes hotel on the Sunbury-Romsey Road which is old but (still standing ) photos in HeraldSun a few weeks ago.
