Scope and content
Incomplete records of Edenderry No 1 Rural District Council, notably missing minute books. The first series comprises sanitary officers' records in the form of a report register and a diary of works completed. Both of these registers continued to be used beyond the life of the rural district council, which was abolished in 1925, and its functions subsumed into the Offaly Board of Health and Public Assistance.
The second series comprises abstracts of accounts prepared in final years of Edenderry RDC in 1924 and 1925.
