Cattle Dealers, Clonakilty, 1911 all have Irish, staying in Catherine O’Donovan’s Hotel.
Census night was probably the night befofre Clonakilty Fair.
In 1901 and 1911 quite a number of West Cork Protestants in particular the older members are bilingual. This is the case even for substantial farmers. In their case many of their labourers may have come from the far west more comfortable speaking in Irish than in English. Even when they spoke in English they were talking Irish but through the medium of the English language.
Interesting that the present day O’Donovan Hotel has its signage in irish:
