Interview with FindmyPast Ireland's Brian Donovan

There's an excellent interview online with FindmyPast Ireland's Brian Donovan, recorded on Ireland's The Morning Show on Friday 9th March, and discussing the recent release of the petty sessions records. The online presentation at does not appear to be territorially restricted (as with the BBC's iPlayer), I've just watched it from here in Scotland, so well worth having a look. It's about 8 minutes in length and starts about 13 minutes in. (You may have to endure a couple of adverts first though).

Some useful snippets, which includes mention of forthcoming projects such as workhouse registers going online at, and obviously more petty session records.
