Dublin in 1911

The National Archives have opened up the 1911 census for online viewing. From yesterdays Irish Times –

On Sunday, April 2nd, 1911, a 28-year-old maths professor called “Edward de Valera” filled out his census form at home at Morehampton Terrace in Dublin. Across town, Oliver St John Gogarty did the same. In the marital status column he wrote “single”, then crossed it out and replaced it with “married”, apparently remembering Martha, his wife of five years.

Can probably spend quite some time digging around here! (These fine folk were in The Sheds that night!)

  2. *nitpicking* were those people not in the actual “sheds” that the pub is named after, rather than the sheds itself…?

  3. I thought about that but couldn’t find any conclusive evidence either way in the less than 3 minutes I spent thinking about it. Connolly’s got its license in 1845 so not sure if it was also the Shed’s back then or not. Will have to do some research there over the Christmas…

  4. ha 🙂
