Ireland 1841 census

Irish Ancestors / 1841 census: "only one set of original returns survived the 1922 fire in Dublin, that for the parish of Killeshandra in Co. Cavan.

There are, however, a number of transcripts of the original returns because the returns from 1841 & 1851 were used in the twentieth century as proof of age when the Old Age Pension was introduced. "
