This section is devoted to note issues of Irish Private Banks which issued banknotes prior to the creation of Joint Stock banks in Ireland. Irish Private Banks were generally small and were restricted to six partners or less, thus limiting their usefulness to the economy.
Most of these banks went bust, and few remained beyond 1833. Some of the more successful Private Banks merged to from joint stock banks after 1835.
The area of Irish Private banks is still in need of a lot of research.
This section is devoted to collating the knowledge about them.
