This is really fantastic.  I've been able to order the service record for my gg-grandfather Frederick F. Alley who served in the RIC prior to immigrating to America however I've not been able to find any records for his father John Alley who was a sub-constable (and noted as sergeant in other places). He was born in 1803, lived in Ballinakill and died at the age of 80+ having received a pension.  Would you have any suggestions for me on where I could look? 

Thank you kindly for your time,
Kelly

Hi Kelly,

I could get no further information, and reading the book Royal Irish Constabulary Officers 1816-1922, by Jim Herlihy, Jim would have done extensive research for his book, but felt there was perhaps more records could be available, but reluctence seems to be the 'by-word' from some places.
Perhaps John's records go back further than Jim Herlihy's book and thus the lack of information.
Should I come across more, I will post same,
Jack

Jack, thank you so much!   I really appreciate your interest and time.  Question for you, in Frederick makes reference to his father John's service as being on the "police force."  Still the same source of records or should I perhaps look elsewhere.

Hope your day is well.  Thanks again.

The RIC was established in 1836, and at first was named Irish Constabulary.

1921 the RIC was disbanded and a new force called The Civic Guard was formed, which is now the Garda.

Not much there to suggest 'police force' but who knows how any person might describe any police force, but!! if I was to make a 'stab' at it, I think it's some other force!, possibly english?

A lot of work ahead..............

I don't know if this will help as it refers to the RUC in Northern Ireland, the members of the RUC were commonly known as the "Police Force", perhaps the RIC were also known as the "Police Force".

The RIC was the national "police force" at that time although I think Dublin and Belfast possibly had their own city force.
