New look National Archives of Ireland website

The National Archives of Ireland has rolled out a new look for its online platfiorm at

Scrolling down its front page brings you to various topics ogf interest to the family historian, in its Explore Collections section:
  • Decade of Centenaries
  • Our Genealogy Website
  • Chief Secretary’s Office Registered Papers, 1818-1922
  • Anglo-Irish Treaty, 1921

The new site has a much needed, more modern feel to it, and should translate well for tablet and phone access.

Its greatest weakness, however, remains its online catalogue. Once that receives a bit more love and attention - and considerably more catalogued information! - the latest Irish revolution will be complete!

PS: Keep an eye out for some changes to the PRONI website in the north over the next few months, with access to certain collections being rearranged within the platform at
