The original records of the 1821 to 1851 censuses were destroyed by fire at the Four Courts in Dublin during the Irish Civil War, while those between 1861 and 1891 were possibly pulped during the First World War.[2] All that remained were the 1901 and 1911 census, with the latter put online in 2009 by the National Archives of Ireland.[2]
