Our aim is to connect all people with a link to Drumline. You may live here, have visited here or maybe are tracing ancestors who left long ago. In any case, we’re sure to have lots to share and are delighted to welcome you.
Feel free to post your message and we will respond as soon as possible. Remember to post as much information as you can with regard to the people you are researching. The more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you. Also include information concerning which sources you may have already used so others may further your research.
Please be patient as our programme has only begun to rollout across the island of Ireland and volunteers in some area's may not yet be organized.
Welcome to Drumline County Clare.
The 1821-1851 census returns were almost destroyed in a fire, the 1861-1891 census returns were destroyed by the Government. The 1901-1911 census returns are available on line free of charge on line on the National Archives of Ireland website.
Very little now survives of the church with only sections of the northern and eastern walls visible. T. At present (1979) no trace survives of this southern wall, not even foundation blocks. As a number of early twentieth century graves occur in the area of the former south wall they may have been responsible for the removal of the traces surviving in 1900.
There was formerly a window in the east wall but, as the site plan shows, only a 1.50 metre gap exists here now with no trace of a window.
The top part of the northern wall contains some concrete facing with rectangular hollows These possibly contained stations of the cross.
Date of Church:
Part of the walls are possibly fifteenth century though as the site is in such a poor overgrown condition it is difficult to be certain.
The niche and station placings show that the site was also used at a much later date, possibly early nineteenth century.
