Irish State Papers now available at PRONI
The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland is pleased to inform users that PRONI is now a subscriber to the Irish State Papers online. Using PCís based in PRONIís Search Room, visitors can search and browse through digitised copies of records held by the National Archives at Kew, London.

The Irish State Papers are the official archives of the Secretaries of State from the reign of Henry VIII to c. 1782. Mainly letters, both from officials and private individuals, they also include reports and memoranda, proposals and treatises, working papers and private papers, accounts of royal revenues and possessions and cover practically every aspect of government. They are of unique significance for Irish history as most Irish records of the Dublin Castle administration before 1790 were destroyed in the burning of the Public Record Office of Ireland in 1922.
