1901 Irish census to launch 3rd June

The 1901 Irish census will be released online on June 3rd, according to the Derek Mooney show on RTE's Radio 1 today, and as reported today on Rootschat. The census will be made available on www.census.nationalarchives.ie free of charge, and unlike the previous 1911 census launch, will be released in its entirety in one go.

Thanks to the anonymous poster on an earlier thread of this blog for the tip off!

UPDATE 18 May : This is now confirmed on the NAI site itself.

You are most welcome - and I am scotmum over on Rootschat.

Here's hoping they stick to what has been announced and be hopefulthat they also eventually upload those streets still missing from the 1911 (as has been suggested on their site).
