Enabling legislation will be completed in June or July - then the process of scanning and transcribing can begin - will take some time, and it is possible that it could be released in stages.
There were those who said that releasing this now or soon should not be done - too many of those who were documented at that time are still around. The main historical value of the 1926 census is that it was the first census of the new state, and there had been none for 15 years - the years of the most the most cataclysmic events in the history of the island.
The 1911 and 1901 censuses were phenomenally successful when measured in terms of number of hits - over 640 million. They were also hugely successful in economic terms - creating a new interest among the wider Irish diaspora and boosting heritage tourism.

The census is always done in April, usually on a Sunday night AFAIK.

I will put in a query and get back to you

I've found it - it was 18th April

Folks, the reality is that it costs to set up a meeting nowadays
.... and the biggest cost is that of insurance. At such meetings, a box will be passed around - nobody will check how much you put in it, if any.
