The Church of Ireland Community of Killala and Achonry, 1870-1940
This study examines the location of this Protestant Community in north County Mayo and south County Sligo from 1870 until 1940.
The Church of Ireland population of north County Mayo and south County Sligo in 1870 was unique. It was comprised mostly of small tenant farmers. This study examines the location of this Protestant Community, explaining why some areas of the diocese had large Protestant populations. It also explains why the number of Protestants decreased dramatically in some parishes, forcing the closure of churches and schools.
