Ireland's free LandedEstates database is back online

Now here's some good news to close out the week!, the database of landed estates and historic houses in Connacht and Munster, from c1700 to 1914, is back up and running.

I'm not sure when the button was pressed, but the site has returned in glorious technicolour. Maybe it's just my poor memory, but I have to say it is looking better than I recall.

The site was dramatically taken offline back in September last year when an attempted cyber attack was made on the University of Galway's computer system, where is hosted.

It's been a long haul for the Tech Support team – I salute them! – and it is great to see the online home of this important resource fully accessible again.
