Census of Ireland, 1901 & 1911

Census Returns are one of the principal sources for family history in Ireland, as they provide the names, approximate ages, addresses on census night and other details for the entire population.Census Returns are one of the principal sources for family history in Ireland, as they provide the names, approximate ages, addresses on census night and other details for the entire population.

The manuscript returns of the 1901 census are the earliest now surviving in their entirety for the whole country. The returns of the 1911 census also survive for the whole country. No census was taken in 1921, and the returns for the censuses taken since 1926 will not be made available for public inspection until they are 100 years old. Consequently, with the exception of a few returns for 1821-51 covering a small number of counties, the Census Returns for 1901 and 1911 are the only census returns currently available for public inspection.
