Publisher: Kenny's Bookshop
Book Condition: Very Good
2010. Hardback. Reproduction of: [The Census of Ireland, 1911 - Area, Houses, and Population: Also the Ages, Civil or Conjugal Condition, Occupations, Birthplaces, Religion, and Education of the People. Province of Connaught. County of Sligo.] Taken in 1911, the report presents the population and land as it stood at that point. The census is more detailed than any prior. The congested nature, particularly but not exclusively of the towns is emphasized by the housing analysis, and the religious divide, already previously apparent, is here easy to analyse. The land, its size and valuation, and the amount of people living on it, is broken down by district, town and townland, and by Poor Law unions. The districts for Sligo are Boyle, Dromore, Sligo and Tobercurry. Similarly to the four previous censuses we are shown figures for hospitals, gaols and workhouses, ages of husbands and wives in relation to each other, people?s occupations, army and police figures, numbers of foreigners, numbers of disabled, levels of trade, religious affiliations, education standards reached, literacy levels, levels of Irish and English, and figures for emigration. All of these categories are broken down in detail, and compared with figures from previous censuses. Bound in modern cloth. Originally published in 1912 by Alexander Thom & Sons in Dublin, for Her Majesty's Stationary Office. . . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland. Bookseller Inventory # 9780857371683
