Irish Army Census 1922: Phase 3 'soon'

The Military Archives has announced that it will shortly release phase three of the Irish Army Census 1922 collection.

This update will allow the researcher to search by forename and/or surname. Entries that match the search details will be returned with a link to the Census Record. In addition, the 33,000+ personnel included in the database will be searchable on a county basis. 

Phase 1 and 2 of the Irish Army Census project have been available, with free access, on since mid-November. These phases saw the ten volumes of Census Returns digitised and searchable by army post.
