Abstract: At the outset of this paper I should like first to thank the President and Council of the Statistical Society for the privilege they have accorded me by inviting me to appear before you this evening, and secondly to apologise for the meagre attempt to crowd into the short space of one hour even a very brief summary of the recent Census of Ireland. When we remember that there were issued from the Census Office 34 separate County and County Borough publications, each having 41 tables and ranging in size from that of County Carlow, which contains 71 pages of the ordinary blue book size, to that of the City and County of Cork, containing 383 pages, together with four Provincial Summaries, and the General Report running into 600 pages, and that every page is full of useful and interesting statistical information, we can realise how futile a paper, extending over even several hours, would be in dealing with a fractional part of the published material. I can only, therefore, bring under your notice this evening a few leading features which, in my opinion, are of most interest to the general community. As the complete English and Scotch Reports are not yet published I am unable to make any comparison with either, and I must therefore content myself at present with comparing the results of the 1911 Census with those of the different Censuses extending back 70 years (1841), and embracing seven successive intercensal periods.
