Fook’s Mill in 1798
Co. Wexford, 1798:
[Ennis (John M.)] Fook’s Mill; or Wexford Now and in ’98, By Innsifail. A small 4to manuscript of 90 numbered pages, stitched and inserted in loose card covers; with “Occasional Pieces, by John W. Ennis,” a number of further pieces of m/ss poetry and prose, similarly stitched, circa 50pp., (approx. 152pp in all), stitching on first item partly perished. A note at the head of first title states “This has appeared in a mutilated form in The Irish Monthly Magazine for May 1833.” The entire in a clear legible hand, with some corrections. As a m/ss., w.a.f.
* It appears to be a very detailed account of the events of 1798 in Foulksmill, written presumably c. 1830, when those events would have been remembered by many still alive.
A most interesting and valuable document. (1)
