CollectionCavan Town Commissioners
Collection DescriptionCavan Town was governed by the Cavan Town Commissioners during the period 1855-1900. A small amount of archives survive and they were transferred from Cavan Town Hall to Cavan County Archives Service during April 2006. Cavan Urban District Council (UDC) took over the functions of the Cavan Town Commissioners under the Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898. As a result of this, some documents pertaining to the Town Commissioners may be listed with UDC archives. [From Cavan County Archives website]
