Release of the 1901 census of Ireland on line

I knew it was coming but it snuck up on me.
The 1901 census of Ireland has been digitised by the National Archives of Ireland and all 32 counties are now available to view for free at this website:

The information documented is:
  • name,
  • relationship to head of household,
  • religious profession,
  • education
  • age
  • sex
  • rank, profession or occupation
  • marital status
  • Irish language speaker
  • Deaf, dumb, blind, imbecile or idiot, lunatic.
All the documents are available to view as original scans and are self completed by the head of household.

Once again, a fantastic effort by the Irish Government. If you haven't already had a look at the 1911 census of Ireland, this is on the same website
