Ireland Census 1926

There has been an expectation that the data of the Irish Census 1926 will be released in 2016, ten years ahead of the 100 year deadline.  Under current Irish legislation, (the Statistics Act, 1993), census data must be withheld for 100 years.  A huge amount of work will be required to digitise the data and this has not been undertaken yet.  Unfortunately for many researchers the data release is not scheduled for 2016 or soon after.
