Monday, 7 May 2018 appears to have been hacked

The state-managed appears to have been hacked. If you try to reach the site, you'll receive a message saying you've been reported, and blocked, for suspicious activity.

As it's a public holiday in Ireland today, it may not be until Tuesday that the techies start to correct the problem.

UPDATE, 21:45: I was out of wifi contact for most of yesterday and today, so I wasn't able to do much more than confirm the problem earlier. Having returned to base camp, John Grenham has come to the rescue to advise that it's only the home pages that seem to be playing up. If you use this link:, you'll find you can get access to the records with no problem. Many thanks, John.

UPDATE, 8 May, 11:05: The site seems to be functioning normally again.
