Former Administrative Areas

Before the passing of the Local Government Act, 1898, the county was divided for fiscal purposes into 14 Baronies, namely :- Clanwilliam; Conello, Upper ; Connello, Lower ; Coonagh ; Coshlea ; Coshma ; Glenquin ; Kenry ; Kilmallock ; Limerick (North Liberties) ; Owneybeg ; Pubblebrien ; Shanid ; Small County.

Under the Act of 1898, Baronies ceased to exist as administrative areas, and each county was divided into urban and rural districts. No alteration was made under this Act in the boundaries of the County, but there are two towns, Newcastle and Rathkeale – which have Commissioners under the Towns Improvement Act, 1854, the Council of the Rural District(R.D.) in which each is being the local Sanitary Authority within the town.
