1926 Irish census update

The Irish Times is reporting that the Irish government intends to press ahead with the publication of the 1926 census although it would be in breach of the 100-year rule which governs all such information, Minister for Heritage Jimmy Deenihan has said.

He said publishing the census would need a change of legislation but he had received "widespread approval" for this.
