The 1911 Irish Census
The 1911 Irish census is only one of two Irish censuses available, the other one being 1901. While earlier censuses were taken, some were destroyed in a fire during the unrest in 1922, and others were recycled during a paper shortage in World War II. Only small fragments of some earlier census documents remain.
