1913 Church of Ireland Directory online

The Representative Church Body Library has released the 1913 Church of Ireland Directory as its Archive of the Month. This Directory provides an insight into the Church on the eve of one of Ireland's most pivotal decades, and, when read in conjunction with the first edition published in 1852 (and also online, here), reveals the huge changes the Church had undergone since dis-establishment.

As you'll see if you follow the link, the 1913 editions of the Church of Ireland Gazette will be going online at the RCBL website next month.
