I have been told that the records of the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) can be viewed at KEW. If this is correct, could someone look for information on John FELTUS.

On Ancestry, Royal Irish Constabulary - FELTUS,John; Date/Age 19; Birthplace Galway; Marriage & Comments- Emigrated; Enlisted 1845; Film: 856058; Page 54B.

On database-http://www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/ire/galway/military/ric-galway-1845.txt
FELTUS , Jno ; Service no 6536; Age 19; Appointed 10 Jan; Native of Galway; Religion Protestant; Trade- Labourer; Stationed- Cork City, Leitrim.

Also looking for James FELTUS born c 1804 who was in RIC – he received a pension from them in South Australia. He was said to be born in Ennis,Clare- still to be confirmed.
