About Ireland, Thom's Directory, 1904

Alexander Thom published the first Thom’s Irish Almanac and Official Directory in 1844. By time the 1904 edition digitized for this database came around, the publication had grown to include a Dublin street directory; names, addresses, and occupations for residents of other towns and districts in the country as well; and a wide variety of happenings, institutions, businesses, and departments for Ireland and the UK, including the following:

  • county fairs and markets in Ireland
  • Parliamentary directory
  • civil service and law directory for Great Britain
  • navy, army, and militia directory
  • colonial directory
  • universities, colleges, schools
  • churches and ecclesiastical directory
  • county and borough directories
  • postal directory
  • peerage

The directory also includes a map of Dublin and a calendar for 1904.
