Some Trinity College Dublin and Other College West Cork Entries from 1593 to 1860.

This is an early stage of a project that will take time. Many of the records were abstracted by Dr. Albert Casey’s (of Birmingham, Alabama) researchers, possibly in conjunction with Basil O’Connell (Retired head of CID, Burma in the 1950s) in compiling the O’Connell tracts. This tracks all known descendants of Daniel O’Connell.

Because for a large part of the period no Catholic could enter Trinity College around 80% of the population was excluded from the only University on the Island. This must have been a major factor in Ireland’s chronic economic underdevelopment. Modern economics stresses the importance of the development of human capital.
