Rialls Bank, Clonmell 1802-1820

Post by ThePloughman » 04 Dec 2017 22:04

William Riall, Charles Riall, Arthur Riall. Final partnership (1802-1820).
This bank appears to have been one of the most successful of the Irish private banks, a family business spanning several generations which was operating for about 100 years. The bank failed in 1820.

Here are two notes from the final partnership of the Clonmell Bank, illustrating two different expressions of the same denomination, namely One Pound Ten shillings (1810) and Thirty Shillings (1818 not sure of the final digit here).

Here is an unissued 6 shillings ‘Silver Note’ from the bank of William Riall & Co. Clonmel. The year is given as 17__ so the note probably dates from the late 1700’s most likely 1799. The old spelling of Clonmel as ‘Clonmell’ is noteworthy.

Here is a Half Guinea note issued by William Riall & Co., Clonmel, in 1805. This is a rare denomination seldom issued by any of the Irish Private Banks.
