PREFACE.

VEARLY fourteen years have elapsed since the publication of the fourth edition of the “Compendium of the Irish Poor Law," prepared by Mr. Arthur MOORE, the late Assistant Secretary of the Poor Law Commissioners, and the work has been for some time out of print. Frequent inquiries, however, being still made for it, and many material changes in the law having taken place since its publication, it has been thought that a fresh compilation, brought down to the latest period, would be acceptable to persons engaged in the administration of the Poor Laws.

With this view, the present work has been undertaken, with the sanction of the Poor Law Commis

sioners.

Some Statutes which were included in the former publication, but which have either been repealed or superseded by other enactments, or which were only temporary in their operation, have been omitted from the present volume ; while, on the other hand, the numerous Statutes relating to the Relief of the Poor, Vaccination, the Public Health, the Registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages, and the Removal of Poor Persons from England and Scotland to Ireland, which have been passed since the completion of that volume, are now given.
