Several of my predecessors in the office of President have
taken as the subject-matter of their addresses a review of the
economic and social condition of Ireland as revealed to us in the
statistics furnished by the General Register Office, and by other
Departments of Government. That I should follow their example
may, perhaps, be considered appropriate, seeing that the
fiftieth anniversary of the foundation of this Society has passed
during my term of office.
I do not propose to travel over the whole field of Irish
statistics, nor would it be desirable that I should do so. After
the Census of 1881 and of 1891, Dr. Grimshaw, the Registrar
General, gave us most valuable addresses, in which he dealt
with great ability, and in the most comprehensive manner with
the wide range of statistical records with which his important
office is conversant.
I desire to draw your attention only to some particular
branches of enquiry, regarding which I purpose making some
observations as the figures pass under review.
