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.



Even in the extreme western parts of Co. Clare the Augustinians held a portion of the rectorial tithe in the parishes of Kilrush, Killimer, Kilfearagh, Killard, Moyarta and Killballyowen; the remaining portions in these six parishes being impropriate to the Collegiate Church of Iniscathaigh In fact all the Augustinian impropriations in the deanery of Corcabaiscinn can be more conveniently seen, though from a reversed point of view, in the Loyal Answers concerning the state of Killaloe diocese given by the Protestant bishop, John Rider, to the ecclesiastical commissioners in 1622. The bishop acknowledges that all sixteen rectories in the diocese were impropriate to ムcertain abbiesメ [prior to the Dissolution]. He lists them as follows: Clondegad, Kilchreest, Kildysert, Kilfiddane, Killofin, Kilfarboy, Kilmurry-Mc Mahon, Killimer, Kilmihil, Kilmacduane, Kilmurry-Ibrickane, Killard, Kilrush, Kilfearagh, Moyarta and Killballyowen.
