About Census 1911 Exhibition

Census 1911 Exhibition in Exhibition runs until August 2011.

Through its Census 1911 Exhibition, Glasnevin Museum is offering a unique opportunity to look at Irish life during 1911.

Dublin in 1911 was a city of genuine diversity. Rich and poor, immigrant and native, nationalist and unionist, Catholic, Protestant, and so many more, were all bound together in the daily life of this metropolis. But what happened to those citizens who filled out their census returns on the 2nd of April 1911?

Accessing Glasnevin Cemetery's Burial Records and the National Archives Census Records, Historian and Author in Residence to Glasnevin Trust, Shane MacThomáis, has traced what became of some of Dublin's inhabitants of 100 years ago.

Discover where old maids died, how families disappeared, what became of James Connolly's daughter Monia, and if old soldiers like John Horton really did just fade away.
