PRONI and NAI media preview arrangements

Please be aware that the annual release of files to the media from the National Archives of Ireland (NAI) and PRONI impacts on the services available to genealogy researchers at the two institutions.

At the NAI, the Reading Room will be closed to the public this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (5-7 December inclusive) while journalists and broadcasters get stuck into records that have been closed for 30 years. As a result, the Genealogy Advisory Service will be unavailable on these dates.

PRONI's media preview takes place next week (10-14 December inclusive). While the Reading Room's document production service will be suspended throughout the week, other services in the Public Search Room, self-service microfilm, exhibition etc remain open to visitors.
