Minister Humphreys has also confirmed that the National Archives’ 1901/1911 Census website has had more than 132 million hits this year, with 2.5 million unique visitors across all the National Archives’ websites.
Minister Heather Humphreys said:
“Our archives are an invaluable resource. In particular, the release of State papers give us an insight into events which shaped this country’s history. The work the National Archives does each year, in ensuring public access to our 30 year old records, enriches our knowledge of Irish history and society and sheds new light on past events.
