Townlands of the Poor Law Union of Mallow

Administrative Divisions
The main administrative divisions that exist in Ireland are: County, Barony, Civil Parish, Townland, Poor Law Union, Dispensary District, Superintendent Registrar's District, Registrar's District, Diocese, and Parish.

County
The county is the principal unit of local Government. There are twenty-six counties in the Republic of Ireland and six counties in Northern Ireland. Most document collections are organised on a county basis. All of Mallow is in the East Riding of County Cork.

Barony
A Barony is an important county subdivision. It is thought to be a Norman division although it's precise origin is unknown. There are generally between seven and ten baronies per county although Cork has twenty and Louth has only four. A barony can occupy parts of two counties in which case it is referred to as a half barony. There are 331 baronies in Ireland.

Civil Parish
There are 2508 Civil Parishes in Ireland. They were originally ecclesiastical divisions and they often break both county and barony boundaries. They became important civil divisions in their own right.

Diocese
The parishes of County Cork are divided between the Diocese of Cloyne and the Diocese of Cork and Ross. All of the parishes in the Poor Law Union of Mallow are in the Diocese of Cloyne.

Townland
There are 60,462 Townlands in Ireland. It is the smallest administrative division and on average covers about 350 acres. Many Townlands share the same name - for example there are 56 Kilmores and 47 Dromores. A full list is available in the Valuation Office and microfilm indexes are widespread.

Poor Law Union
The Poor Law Act of 1838 introduced another administrative division - the Poor Law Union. Initially there were 130 and eventually 163 poor law unions. Between 1838 and 1852, 163 workhouses were built throughout the country, each at the centre of an area known as a Poor Law Union. The workhouses were normally situated in a large market town, and the Poor Law Union comprised the town and its catchment area, with the result that the Unions in many cases ignored the existing boundaries of parish and county. The workhouse in the town provided relief for the unemployed and destitute, generally under very harsh conditions. Records were kept of the inmates and these can provide useful research material.
The workhouse for the Mallow Poor Law Union was located in Mallow. The minute books of the meetings of the Board of Guardians for Mallow are in the custody of the Cork Archives Institute.
