Carshore's Tipperary Bank - 1 Series, 1 sole partner

Carrick on Suir bank

Little is known of Carshore's bank, except that it opened in late March 1805 [1. Hayes, 1809]. Carshore appears to have started out as a banker from the outset, unlike some of the other smaller issuers of notes such as Denis Moylan in nearby Cork who appears to been a merchant who issued notes without ever going into banking.

1810 Failure

O'Kelly (1959) states that the bank failed in 1809 [2.]. Saunders' Newsletter notes under Bankrupts: 'Joseph Carshore, of Carrick-on-Suir, county Tipperary, late Banker and Dealer in Exchange' [3].

Joseph Carshore died in late 1810 according to cemetery records.
