Both the General Register Office of Northern Ireland (GRONI) and the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) have announced that they will close their doors early on Friday 9 May.
- GRONI's counter and telephone ordering services will close at 3:00pm. No priority orders will be taken after 2:00pm.
- PRONI will close at 3:15pm. As the Giro d'Italia start line is in the Titanic Quarter, where PRONI is based, it's probably sensible to anticipate congestion and traffic problems from the day before.
