Vicarstown, County Offaly Ireland Beggars Bush 1837

Ballyvicarye (1569) (Irish, Baile an Bhiocáire) is recorded consistently from 1602 as Vicarstown, with some variation in spelling, but the record for 1837 gives “Vicarston al’ Beggar’s Bush”.

See also Philipstown, County Offally, although there is no obvious connection.

There is also a Beggarstown (Irish, Baile na mBacach) in County Offaly.
