The below image details relief given to a man, Patrick Mulgrave, at Clonmel Union Workhouse. Patrick was entitled to relief, as a Chelsea Pensioner who returned from London having served in the 28th Regiment of Foot. The order was made by the Board of Guardians, 6 August 1846.
The Cashel and Clonmel PLU Minute Books, from February and April 1849 respectively, reveal details of the assisted emigration scheme for orphan girls, often referred to as the Earl Grey Scheme (1848-1850). The Clonmel details are very important in that the girls sent to Australia are specifically named.
