Note the 1911 census of the six counties that became Northern Ireland are not available in PRONI.
The first successfully completed census of Ireland took place in 1821. Unfortunately it,
and almost all the census returns after that up until 1891, were destroyed, either by government order during the First World War or were lost in the destruction of the
Public Record Office in Dublin, in 1922.
A few remnants remain of the 1821 to 1851 censuses, but 1901 is the earliest and most complete census of Ireland that survives. Old age pension records preserve some of the information from the 1841 and 1851 census
