The reading room of the Military Archives at Cathal Brugha Barracks, Dublin 6, will close to researchers on 11 December and will not re-open until 7 January 2013.
Last month, reading room appointment arrangements were altered to accomodate extra researchers (see report), so this is a bit of a blow, especially when the 1922 Free State Army Census has just been released. The closure is to enable the annual file audit to be carried out before Christmas.
The next available appointment
after Christmas will be on Tuesday the 8th January 2012.
