My grandfather was born in Kerry in 1871. He joined the R.I.C. in 1892 and his first posting was to Dugort. The R.I.C. had a policy of posting policemen away from their County of birth and even the County of their wife's birth.I do not have any access to or knowledge of any particular Achill genealogical sites. However www.irishgealogy.ie which you are probably aware of is very useful but is scanty for the period that you are looking at.

You  "think" the family went to Achill in the 1840's with the Rev Nangle.... so where was he from??

Rev. Nangle came from Dublin and formed a mission on Achill Church of Ireland mission. 

What I do not know is whether the Sheridan's local Mayo/Achill folks or from further afield, and without things like birth records I do not know how to discover that. 

I will scour www.irishgealogy.ie, thank you "patrick street" for that suggestion.

we arrived at the Slievemore Hotel dry but benumbed. "Mine host" of the Slievemore, one Captain Sheridan, is perhaps the best-known Boniface in the west of Ireland.......

Golly Hallmark where did that come from!  How lovely.

Thank you Hallmark, what a great copy. 

Its also great to have found the Sheridan's on the 1901 Census with the help from aghadowey and mike christopher on here. 

I am still trying to find earlier members of the family born early 1800s as above.  I don't know where to look for earlier records.
