About the Private Banknotes section

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.

(Not sure if Im allowed post here, sorry if I'm outta line.)

Will there be a section on your web site on the Private banks any time soon?
Theres nothing out there on the web about them, except bits from on auction sites. It'd be cool to have a proper site on them.

Once I have enough to start a section on the Private Banks I will do one. There is a gap for it on the Map Page!
I might start with those banks where many of the notes have survived, such as Gibbons & Williams, and grow it from there.

...better pay for the parking, it'll be a while yet before the section is started.
The sections on the 1918-1928 Joint Stock Banks will come first.
