    I am working on a military biography of Miles Byrne, the Wexford rebel who served in Wicklow under Joseph Holt from early July to mid-November 1798. I am seeking possible accounts of Byrne in County Wicklow, either oral or written, or accounts of engagements in which he might have taken part against local yeomanry of regular government forces. I note that, although he writes that he accompanied Holt on one particular mission, Holt fails to mention him, though the details given by Byrne are otherwise remarkably similar to those given by Holt. Do you have any suggestions as to where I might look for this information?

  2. Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, we don’t have any specialist information on your research topic. You probably have already seen what is available in published form. Among these:

    (1) The Hathi Trust website has the text of his three-volume memoirs:

    (2) Eneclann.ie have published a searchable CD-ROM ‘Some Notes of an Irish Exile of 1798, Being the Chapters from the Memoirs of Miles Byrne relating to Ireland (1910)’:

    Otherwise, we would suggest contacting the public library services of Counties Carlow, Wicklow and Wexford. They may very well have some material in their local history collections that is not yet listed in their catalogues.

    Finally, Professor Ruan O’ Donnell of University of Limerick has written extensively on 1798. It may be worth your while seeking his advice. His contact details may be found at:

    Good Luck with your research!
