1922 Irish military census now online

As announced on this blog last week (see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/1922-irish-military-census-to-be.html) a military census carried out in 1922 detailing all those fighting for Michael Collins' new Free State Army has now gone online at the Defence Forces Military Archives website at www.militaryarchives.ie.

Indexes to the collection are expected in the very near future - at present you will need to search via an interactive map. The Irish Times has an article about the new collection at www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2012/1113/1224326525225.html
