Ballinrobe Census 1901

Main Street
By Mary Coyne

Main Street, 1901

The 1901 Census of Ireland was carried out on the night of 6th April.

For each person present in the household the census lists name, age, sex, religion, relation to head of household, birthplace, occupation, literacy, martial status and specified illnesses as well as the person’s ability to speak Irish.

Main Street, as per the census appears to include part of Bowgate Street.  Unforunately, the house reference number would appear to be assigned randomly.

HUGH CURLEY (c.1850-1924) married my great grand aunt Sarah J. Malone (c.1857) in 1893. The family ran the drapery shop on Main St. in Ballinrobe at least until 1931. 

Looking for current day connection to their children Patrick J. Curley (c 1897) and Mary A. Curley (c. 1895).

Think Hugh had siblings who married into Greilly (Greely, Grealy) and Kinnane families.

Hugh Curley was related to my G-Mother Rosanne Tully, looking for other Tully's around that period.
