Irish Census of 1901 available online

Irish Census of 1901 available online"The National Archives of Ireland has made the Irish Census of 1901 available online. On the website, people will be able to view the Census and perform a variety of searches under forename, surname and county as well as more advanced searches including religion, occupation, Irish language proficiency, specified illnesses and literacy status. The website was launched in December 2007 and the entire 1911 Census has been available online since 2008. The 1911 census was prepared first because the quality of the microfilm used to digitise the images is better than the microfilm of 1901 as well as the fact that there are much more microfilm reels available for 1911 than 1901"
