Back in May 2014, you may have seen this request for information re Papal Army Subscription information...


Since that time, Clare Roots Society, in conjunction with the Clare Library, have worked with our very enthusiastic group of volunteer transcribers to bring together what promises to be a very useful addition to our research resources... a list of many in Co Clare who subscribed to the funds needed for the support of the Papal Army.

You can find the list here...


 You will also be able to read the background of the project and the names of all involved. 

The launch of Clare Papal Army Project took place at the Manse Local Studies Centre, and was presented by Bishop Kieran yesterday, 18th November, 2014. I will add photos when they become available.

Just another great addition to the free resources we are fortunate enough to have in Co Clare.

The following article from TROVE will give you some background to what the Papal Army was all about.
