V. Attic
  The attic appears to have being untouched since surveyed in 1988. Almost all shelves are crammed, giving circa 80 cubic feet of records, with additional c.35 cubic feet loose on the floor. While many documents are indiscriminately piled on to shelves, some do appear to have a discernible order, which should be retained during transfer. Many documents, particularly those on floor, show signs of water damage.
  Sample contents of shelves and floor: [Note, particularly with regard to pre-twentieth century material, documents in the attic appear to have the same origin as those which comprise the Jackson Collection. The will of Frances Jackson, leaving the Collection to the people of Carlow, predates much of the material now comprising the Collection]
