The War of Independence in Ireland resulted in the postponement of the 1921 Census, causing a break with Great Britain Census timing (which would not be restored until 1951).

In 1925 the Northern Ireland Minister of Finance indicated that it was nearly 15 years since the last Census in Ireland and that significant events such as the Great War and the 1918-19 flu epidemic required a census to be carried out.

It was accordingly held on 18 April 1926 (the same day as the census of the rest of Ireland (then the Irish Free State).

  • I thought that I'd seen that there was no census for Northern Ireland in 1926. Will this census be available online in 2026?
