This list of blacksmiths is taken from “A Return from the Clerk of the Peace of Every County in Ireland, of the names and places of abode of every Blacksmith whose forge has been registered, and who has received a Licence at quarter Session, during the last 10 years”, British Houses of Commons Sessional Papers, 1843, Vol L, page 51.
The list gives names and residences. The list for Donegal is the longest included in the Sessional Papers, and includes 82 names. Some counties of Ireland have no Blacksmiths listed as registered at all, which does not mean that there where no blacksmiths in those counties, they may not have been registered, or the local adminstration may not have bothered with registration. There may also have been more Blacksmiths in Donegal than those mentioned on this list.
