FindMyPast has added the Irish Army Census 1922 to its database.

This record set, also available free of charge on the Military Archives website, holds some 32,000 records of men who were serving with the Irish Army at midnight on 12-13 November 1922.

Each record includes a transcript of the details found in the original records and a link to the image on the Military Archives website. Most transcripts provide details such as the soldiers name, age and calculated birth year, place where serving and county.

The images of the original record may reveal further information such as their division, rank, attestation date, religion, marital status, home address and next of kin.
