Royal Irish Constabulatory Records - 1816 To 1921

Compiled by Mike Dalton of Oregon

There are several constables on this list who resigned to emigrate and may have joined the a police or sheriff's department in their new land. Many entries are mini genealogies.

The RIC was established in 1816 to replace policing by British Militia and agents hired by local landlords. The RIC was an armed police force operating from strategic barracks around the countryside. It was disbanded during the 1922 Irish Rebellion. Some 85,000 men served. Afterwards, the RIC GARDA was established in the Irish Free State; the Royal Ulster Constabulatory (RUC) was established in British ruled Northern Ireland. Source: FHL # 856057-856068; 852088-852094.

Upon completion of training at the Depot in Phoenix Park, Dublin, appointees were allocated to certain counties. To avoid legal improprieties, applicants were obliged to serve in counties away from county of birth. If they married, they were asked to transfer away from the wife's county of birth to another county. Some additional details of their RIC careers are also available on their individual records by listed reference numbers. RIC records were indexed annually by date of enlistment. Some entries are enhanced with details from other genealogical sources.
