National Library of Ireland will be offline on 17 October

The National Library of Ireland has advised that all its online services will be unavailable from 11am on Wedneday 17 October while essential maintenance is carried out.

For family history researchers, the greatest negative of this downtime will be lack of access to the Library's Catalogue and free Roman Catholic Registers database. Regarding the latter, FindMyPast's and Ancestry's indexes and links to the latter will also be impacted, with transcriptions available but no images.

Online services are expected to be functioning again during the afternoon.

UPDATE, 17 October, 18:50pm: Full service appears to have resumed.
