Bricks and Mortar: A wedding present like no other

Kilrush & District Historical Society have undertaken to publish books recording the history of each street in Kilrush, County Clare. The first street to be examined is Frances St, which was a wedding gift to Lady Frances Moore, the youngest daughter of the Marquis of Drogheda, who married John Ormsby Vandeleur in 1800. She brought a marriage settlement of £6000.
