Search Restored for Irish Civil Registration Indexes

It appears Irish authorities are now satisfied the earth will continue to rotate if civil registration indexes are returned to IrishGenealogy.ie/. You now have to enter your, or at least a name, and check a box to affirm you'll abide by Section 61 of the Civil Registration Act, 2004 to reach the basic search form. An advanced search is available by choosing the More search options.
Before you see the results there's the annoyance of a reCAPTCHA entry.
I was pleasantly surprised that a search with first and last name returned results where the first name specified was actually the middle name - useful when people choose to reverse the order in later life.

Years available are 1864-1914 for births, 1845 or 1864 (depending on religion - 1939 for marriages and 1864 - 1964 for deaths.
