CommentThe information listed from this repository has been extracted from lists available in the archives. The lists were compiled by Mary Fitzpatrick, Archivist, and by library staff, and we are grateful for their assistance. It must be remembered that due to time constraints not all items were examined individually. Where partial or no lists were available, staff of the Women's History Project constructed an outline list.

As of 2022, all surviving Poor Law Union Minutes, as well as records pertaining to the UDCs/Town Commissioners are now held in Kildare County Archives. A large amount of material has not been accessioned beyond a basic listing.
