Almost all the records acquired by the Public Record Office of Ireland
before 1922 were destroyed by fire and explosion at the beginning of the
Civil War in June 1922 and as a result, the material now held by the
National Archives of Ireland dates mainly >from the 19th and 20th centuries,
although there are a few surviving court and exchequer rolls dating to the
early 14th century.

The National Archives of Ireland website is:
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/index.html which includes the 1901 and 1911
censuses on line. To find out more about what archives are available go to
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/research/archives.html
On the National Archives website there are links to a number Irish genealogy sites
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/genealogy/links.html

A number of Jews did stop in Ireland en route to North America, some staying
for years...therefore, these archives may be of interest to those who had
ancestors who did stop and or stay in Ireland.

Thank you to BellaOnline Genealogy website for information on the Ireland
