Ireland, Outrage reports 1836-1840 consists of over 18,000 police reports filed by the Royal Irish Constabulary between 1836 and 1840. The reports were created by chief constables who were charged with writing a short summary of all incidents, crimes or disturbances that occurred within their county. These reports would then be sent to the Inspector General of the Constabulary.

The original records are held at the National Archives in London and come from the series HO 100: Ireland: Home Office correspondence on civil affairs. Each record includes both a transcript and scanned colour image of the original document. The details recorded in each report varied depending on the constable recording the event and the information available at the time of the incident. Images of the original documents contain a short description of the event or offence reported. The records also record the details of victims of crime, as well as serving members of the Royal Irish Constabulary.


Explore over 782,000 court records from London’s Old Baily, the central criminal court of England & Wales.
